My wife's set up complete with the keyboard she just stole from me and the desk that I built for her.

Also, this guy visits me regularly:

He's not a pet. He's a wild squirrel who found out how to come through my screen door, come upstairs to my computer room and ask for some nuts.

Just yesterday, he ran all over my Amiga 500, my Victor 9000, Atari 800XL and even my frigging IBM 3278 APL Beam Spring! (... and it's not the first time, either!) He stuffed a nut beside my Victor 9000. If he's anything like his father ("the orange guy"), he'll come back in a couple months to collect it. (...the little bastard!)

Here's that little guy hopping up on my leg:

That damn little guy ran over my keyboards again! First, he tried out the Dasher, then hopped onto the beam spring.

(I think he preferred the beam spring, but he didn't say.)
Tragically, I have to report that this little squirrel - a squirrel who has tested more keyboards than any other squirrel in (known) history, died this year in unknown circumstances. He will be fondly remembered. Another squirrel has taken his place. Although the new guy has so far only tested the Dasher D2, the APL beam spring, a Micro Switch SW and stuffed a nut into a Teletype Model 40, we have great hopes that he will test other keyboards in the future.

This is my computer room, as it looked back in 1938. Yes, we had computers, lava lamps, all the modern stuff... but everything was frigging sepia coloured. I remember it was such a relief when life went full colour.

Most of my keyboards are at the barrack. Nothing much to show off sadly.

So glad to see this thread still going after all these years. The setups of deskthority are always unique and inspirational. Nothing special going on here, just a ducky one that's been my daily driver for 5 years or so. The keycaps have started to get loose and spring off the stem from time to time. Maybe someone knows of some cool cherry doubleshot backlit keycap replacements?

This is my new (first) workplace. Wanted to replace the default 3$ rubber keyboard with something special and not too loud, so I'm currently trying out my Apple Standard Keyboard M0118 with salmon ALPS. Crazy to think this keyboard is at least 30 years old.

It looks like I didn't post my final setup 3.5 years ago, so here's the gist of it, although it's work-in-progress once again (hence the cable gore and unused monitors on the right).

Image
  • docked ThinkPad T440p (quad-core i7, 16GB RAM, dual SSD&HDD, FHD IPS screen, JIS keyboard) running Kubuntu LTS
  • 24" 1440p IPS ThinkVision monitor (recently downsized from 27")
  • Kinesis Advantage 2 (retooled MX Brown, OG doubleshot DCS, Maltron keymap)
  • random trackball, currently Logitech M575, but I have recently used Kensington Pro Fit Ergo, Contour Perfit mouse,…
  • AQ M24, the cheapest active 5" speakers that I could find, and currently testing new-to-me Sennheiser HD 650, still powered by Audinst HUD-mx1
  • some cheap USB cardioid condenser microphone kit
  • the peripherals plugged into an USB hub switchable between two computers
  • sit-stand converter desk: locally made Varidesk clone
  • Steelcase Reply chair from an office liquidation
  • temperature-controlled kettle from Eta, currently drinking some strong Vietnamese green tea

That's my itty-bitty present desk—a John Lewis show model sold for a discount—dominated by my oldest keyboard. It has to be small: that Roland piano beside it is 88 keys, and I don't mean TKL! :lol:

Here's my more typical home office setup, with the front-line SSK. Note the desk may be tiny, but is heavily customised. I'm not afraid to drill holes and add mezzanine decks to the wee bugger! It's just MDF anyway. I've bolted a long power strip, hard drives, a cable tray, and various pieces of sneakily placed cable routing you can't see.

The shelf under the desktop is for holding my computer. I originally installed it for my 15" MacBook Pro (2013), which I've since replaced with a slender M1 MacBook Air (2020). The Pro had all the ports, and I hooked things up to them directly, by the left side. The Air is quite different: I plug it in with a single cable to the Thunderbolt Dock I slid into place on its right (the silver thing below my mouse pad). All my substantial cable mess is now tucked away out of sight, behind that. I'm super picky about keeping that shite out of sight!

Can you tell I don't mouse much?

One last thing: I have an old IKEA laptop bed table on the floor, second lifed as a footrest! Well, I like to kick back with a keyboard on my lap, see, though maybe not this beamer!

Next addition idea: a second keyboard holder, for stowing the lap board when I get up from the desk…

One day I'll have enough space to really spread out, and will get myself a nice desk, too. That day is not today. :roll:

My Kish is usually right in the spot where the beamspring currently sits! At 3kg, it's a bit heavy for extended lap use—where I really like to be—but I do it all the same. Don't have the desktop space to sit them both, however. That's why I was thinking of adding another custom shelf…

Actually, here's a pic of maximum desk usage:

What desk pad is that you've got? I got a black one which is exactly the same width as my wee desk! But I don't like the vinyl feel of it and neither does my mouse's tracking.

I took my desk from my former work, where it once served as an information desk) I was told that it can be taken. Now I use it as a personal computer desk.

It's a genuine leather mouse mat from amazon
https://www.amazon.co.uk/Londo-Leather- ... B078Y2ZK49

It's doing the job fine in the short term until I can make my own. Every other mouse mat I've used tends to fall apart after a year or two so I'm hoping that by making my own thick leather mouse mat it'll last pretty much forever. The vinyl and fabric ones are notorious for falling apart.

Leather craftsman, eh? You’ll probably find a few interested customers around here if you get good at it. I’ve scuffed up too many table tops over the years, but mouse mats aren’t what they used to be.

A new "world record" has been broken. A new "up and coming" squirrel has now repeatedly tested every single god-damned keyboard in this room (and even some out of shot):

He has tested beam springs, buckling springs, Cherry M7/MX, Teletype, Key Tronic, Hi Tek, Clare Pendar, SMK, Alps orange/black/SKCC/SKFL, Apple hairpin, Mitsumi, Micro Switch SW/SD, ITW, General Instruments and others.

Well done, little guy. (...and damn you for stuffing nuts into half of them!)

I think these guys wanted in to try out the keyboards too:

That's a very luxurious office, wow! You've got quite the machines, I also love the old phone and all that on the desk. Did you deliberately choose that angle to hide the cables, or is it just as organized as the rest? :D

The old phone on the desk is operational, made in 1953. I didn't deliberately hide cables, but there's a bunch of cables beside the desk that I trip over regularly. I suppose I should tape them down.

Here's a wider angle (probably posted before):

I wish I had a camera in the room, but I watched that eff-ing squirrel stuff a walnut into my Teletype Model 40, stuff another walnut into my Kaypro II and a hazelnut into my IBM 5155 - and he hammered repeatedly so long that he looked like he was taking dictation.

That's hilarious and concerning at the same time. Sounds like he could really damage something if he wanted to. Better teach him about the current value of all this stuff next time you catch him red-handed.
