Ha! I have those speakers, and I adore them. I had that keyboard, too, till my daughter spilled a can of root beer on it. I've wanted an eeePC for a while now so I could try to Hackintosh it, but I've decided to wait till the Ion comes out this summer instead.

The speakers are pretty cool, for a 2:1 setup. I'm trying to remember how long I've had 'em, it's gotta be at least 5 years, possibly even 6, and they're perfect for what I want. If / When I upgrade to 5:1 I'm definitely gonna go for Creative again, as well as recycling the current 2:1 setup (I'll probably hook the laptop upto 'em). The keyboard I've only had for a few months, but so far I'm loving it - nice and comfortable to type on. Definitely recommend it to anyone

Tamilboy86 - That's what my setup wants to look like, when it grows up :)

What kind of desk is that, Boz? And can we get a closeup of that photo on the wall with the stickynotes? Looks interesting. xD

It's Bush furniture. Modular collection. You pick modules and put them together.

I spent the whole weekend working around the house. Started yesterday in the yard, cut the grass and spread some seed; today was the inside day.

Long story short, I decided to clean up the home office....

As we start on down the line, we begin with my MacBook Pro, it is the early 2007 2.16 GHz model, I bumped it to 2GB of RAM. I haven't rebooted it since the last major OS revision, just keep putting it to sleep.

The Mini is the new 2009 model, I picked it up the day they dropped. I am getting by fine with the stock 1GB of RAM, but the 4GB upgrade is right around the corner. I must say, it was nice buying this on cash and not using AMEX.

3377398714_e7d06627e2.jpg

From the left are:

(VOL8) 500 GB MyBook, used for Time Machine.

(VOL5) 1000 GB WD Elements, used for pics, apps, tv shows, movies, 007, etc.

(VOL6) 1000 GB WD Elements, used for music (full albums)

3377387656_60093b873e.jpg

Here is the 40" LCD that my mini runs on, I also picked up the Bluetooth keyboard with the Mini.

3377385038_10633b4834.jpg

Printer, amp, switch, modem, router, blanks, etc, etc.

3376574001_8b3a0af8b2.jpg

All of the below drives are Acomdata 1000 GB drives.

From the left are:

(VOL1) 1000 GB, used for pics, apps, tv shows, movies, 007, etc.

(VOL2) 1000 GB, used for music (full albums)

(VOL3) Mirror to VOL1

(VOL4) Mirror to VOL2

On the opposite wall is my computer for remoting into work

3377393182_3c390daa47.jpg

Work computer is on the right, I also have another Windows box that I remote into from time to time. There are a few things that I just haven't been able to migrate over to the Mac (yet).

3377394714_74d4fb9e17.jpg

Down in the garage, I set up a (L-R) FreeNAS server, Windows 2003 Enterprise Server and Mac OSX Server. I am not doing too much with them yet, but it's more than collecting dust in the closet. They are connected to the rest of the network via the Airport Express on the power strip.

That looks cool..

I work for the greatest insurance company on the planet. I just nerd on the side.

What resolution is the TV running at?

1920x1080, I run the Mini DVI to DVI connector out of the Mac Mini, then use a DVI to HDMI cable. Because it isn't a pure connection, I lose the video every few hours. All I have to do is turn the TV off and on to get it back. I haven't been able to find a single cable that will go from Mini Display Port/Mini DVI to HDMI (or even component) yet.

That's what sucks about it. All these cool skins are coming out but the old Xbox doesn't have enough juice to run them smoothly (but it will run them).

I'm thinking of getting an Apple TV and putting XBMC on there along with Boxee (Y)

I would say is about time to cut off the xbox, it is hardware limited 8? plus year old platform. It is just holding back the development.

I'd be sad to see the Xbox development end (mine is still the main multimedia device in my living room), but I do agree that it's about that time.
