>That wacom pen in its wacom pen base

And we share a case too!


We do to. I didn't even notice until you pointed it out. Do you like it? I've been using mine for about 4 years now.




Other side of the pond, Aussie. What gave it away?


panadol, blackmores and centrum
that sistema looking plastic box
the toothbrush


this looks like i want my room to look like


What's that? Which toothbrush gave it away, the woolies one or the sensodyne one?

Honestly I'm lucky that I don't have to confine myself to a single room; I've a whole house I can clutter up with my junk.



the woolworths select one. i use one myself. it's shit.

the surge protector thing beneath the desk.


I tried it once, and it tore my gums apart. They've been relegated to plastic crack use only.

>surge protector

Now that I understand.

I feel comfortable posting because it looks like my battlestation isn't the only one that is a bit messy.

There are a bunch of servers in the closet as well.

>car fluids
muh nigguh

I have to change my brake fluid but am too scared of complications and rust making everything fall apart in my hands. Also I have no one to do it with, and the one-man method seems risky, brake system might suck some air in.

fuck this is like my dream setup sushi roll. what games you play with those controllers?


Thank you sushi roll! These days it's usually War Thunder, Elite Dangerous, and Star Citizen. Occasionally though I'll jump back into IL-2 Sturmovik when I feel like being a cyka blyat.

Also, can only back off so much before the usb cable used for tethering runs out of lenght.

Here's my current setup. Somehow I ended up with another weird Hanns G monitor, but at least this one is leaning straight. Also has a vertical mode for danmaku ;3

I'm so confused by this seating arrangement.

It's difficult for me to fit all of my battlestation into one photograph, since it's kind of a wraparound station (once you include my water bottles so that I can stay hydrated). Also the bright window makes it difficult to take properly exposed pictures, especially since much of my equipment is black-colored.
I want to be like you. I have a server over in the corner of my room but it's loud and will probably get decommissioned when I move all my media to the machine in pics related.

I've been considering getting a different desk. I originally bought the one I'm using now b/c I was in highschool and figured that the school tables are made to take quite a beating, so one of those should serve perfectly fine for a desk. Besides being a little small, it was a good purchase, but I've got more computers than I can manage on just the one desk at this point.


I want an office that looks like this.

That wheel/peddle stand is cool. Did you make it or is it available somewhere?


>Did you make it
I wish I was handyman enough to be able to make something like that. I got it from Next Level Racing http://www.ne xtlevelracing.com/products/next-level-racing-wheel-stand/.

Hello! I have updated since I posted this last year! Not as many CRTs, which is sad (they started dying on me) but things are still ok!


what is your job sushi roll?


Computer engineer. Freelance PCB design, software engineering, systems architecture, that sort of stuff.
I wish I didn't have to work any more and could spend more time on personal and community projects.

Here's a pic with a default-ass google filter, colors are cool.


reminds me of when I only had a laptop


Does anyone here wish that they still only had one computer? I remember when I had a single computer and an old 1024x800CRT. I had slackware on there with some minimal package set. Flakey internet because I was stealing my neighbors phone line at the time ahha, but I remember finding some local BBS's and stuff and diling around. I got more work done and more code produced than I do on my current multi monitor multi cored workstation beast (>>727).


I only have one shitty old laptop and I don't really need anything else.


I kinda feel the same way too. I was a lot more productive when I was getting by with Pentium and Pentium II processors when everyone else had 2GHz+ Pentium 4 and Athlon XP processors. I spent a lot more time learning to use what I already had, and solving problems without having to use google for every little thing. I used to read a lot more books too. I guess I wasn't able to distract myself with internet videos and video games all the time, and my computer was too weak for divx tv shows, so if I wanted to watch something, I had to wait a week for that one hour it was aired on TV, instead of binge-watching it all in two days.

It is my own fault for being easily distracted anyways, tho I could make steps to limit myself. I've seen others cut the cord completely at home, and only using the internet at work or in their office.


I personally haven’t owned a PC for about 7 months(posting this from my cell, my bst is the one with the omnikey plus and mega man mousepad). In that time I got a good job, made lots of friends, etc..

Definitely worth it, but I’m getting my new motherboard in the mail tomorrow(I got rid of my old one to discipline myself). So new picture soon lol.

The hardest part was finding ways to entertain myself at night, especially at this time of the year. I do own a Switch and 2 games, there’s tv(which is boring most of the time), and YouTube on the phone. But you start missing the desktop oriented chat programs, websites, yar har fiddlydee, and complex games after awhile. But none of that can replace a good book in the park, so I’ll try to keep that in perspective when I’m given back the keys.


It’s not too good right now as I just got this PC. I’m getting a new monitor soon and then a new desk.


File: 1510561880264.jpeg (1.23 MB, 3264x2448, 1508759811217.jpeg)

Apparently I can't upload from my Ipod and I can't get photos off my Ipod to my PC now for some reason either, this is quite annoying.


That looks awesome sushi!


File: 1511616627006.jpg (737.58 KB, 2000x1500, IMG_0117 - Copy.JPG)

The Mario thing lights up, but I keep forgetting to buy batteries for it when I'm out.

The only thing I still have from these pics is my mouse, and the Omnikey, but it's in storage atm.


Email those suckers to yourself sushi!

Sorry for the bad pictures, I'm horrible with any kind of camera. My cheap computer, with how my room looks with my rift setup and how my station looks normally. Vr gaming is cool but the vr tax is getting to me and pirating makes me feel a bit bad for most devs. Now I just use it as a virtual workspace, so I can mess around with cad stuff in a more professional looking environment. I used to also use it for watching anime and emulating games, but I find it easier to do all that without the headset on.

I've been having people over so I havent cleaned up


I could be wrong but is that mastodon on the left monitor?



I believe it is discord, probably.


don't worry. it looks on a budget, but bretty comf.
could be comf, but yeah, terrible mess


I used to have a gaming PC. Built a really fast computer. Had a multi-monitor setup, lots of stuff around my desk, the works.

But I found that discouraged me from going out. Now, my battlestation is literally just a MacBook. I work on group programming projects with people on campus, or sometimes I work or study in the library or engineering building. It's much more liberating to move around instead of confining myself to a room. A room can feel like a prison.

Sure, a laptop is slower, not as upgradable, and more expensive for the same performance. No, I can't play games on it. But it encourages me to be more productive and social.

Just my two cents.

Not really much.
