    My room just got a bit messier...



    What's with all the keyboards? I've got two computers hooked onto the same monitor, the other being my linux computer (the silver one), and the old AST keyboard is for my IRC laptop (much better for typing).

    I am aware there are programs available that allow single keyboard/mouse setup for two computers, but I'm too lazy to dl those, and it has worked like this just fine so far...

    I take the linux keyboard off for gaming, but othewise it's always there (stays on with blu-tack) :P

    Nice.
    For some reason, I think Macs look pretty nice in home office settings.
    Especially running Linux or Windows 7.

    I don't mean to sound like a microsoft fanboy, but why would anyone buy a mac just to put windows or linux on it? You could get the same computing power for like 3 times less.

    Its not my mac, its my mums, and I use windows on it (well I did use windows on it) because I needed a 2nd pc for a freind to game on when we played our games. she uses the mac osx, besides its easy to use for her so she doesnt mind, and the intergrated HD screen is a massive plus.

    That seems like a very ignorant comment; that's like saying someone who's black can't be racist.

    Correction
    Microsoft is too broad, your including xbox 360, MSN, MSNBC, Windows (ofc), and much more.
    Not to get you all boiled up, but Microsoft to me is a bit to broad..

    anyway, what you said is correct, which sadly, Mac fanboys wont accept that they could get cheaper.. (Legally of course..)

    THIS IS WHY WE CANT HAVE NICE THINGS :saddowns:

    THIS IS WHY WE CANT HAVE NICE THINGS :saddowns:
    Not all people who have macs (apparently everyone thinks that anyone who owns or wants a mac is so gungho' for the Apple cause they'd apparently strap c4 to their chest and jihad attack Microsofts HQ) are fanatical fanboys.

    I dislike trendy people regardless, especially trending people who buy macs just for the sake of buying a mac so they can sit in Starbucks and surf their facebook (that is also populated by other trend-douches).

    I'm going to buy a Macbook Pro this fall for school and work, and I do graphic arts so my main draw to the mac is the quality of the screen, a 17" 1920x1200 LED backlit LCD. With a windows based laptop you are able to get a better GPU than the 9600GT (with the 9400GS in hybrid SLI) but you'll be hard pressed to find a laptop with an equal build quality or weight to size ratio, and since for me personally I'm tired of my laptops falling apart after 2 years, I'm going to spring for something a bit sturdier this time.

    Because a layer of dense carpet will help if there's a heat problem.
    i dont think simple surround sound cords are going to over heat. the cords are really long and look horrible behind my tv so i hide them under the carpet.

    right now my room is been planned for re-decoration so my room is pretty desolate. i plan on painting my room like the source dev textures (orange and grey) and getting a new desk and bed.

    so right now my 'workstation' looks like this


    despite everything its a bit uncomfortable.

    so i'm looking forward to getting my room done.
