Really bad picture but my flash won't fire with a manual lens for some reason and my Nikon 28-105 lens got broke.

The worst Apple keyboard ever! Vile!

it was even more vile before i cleaned it with disinfectant wipes and compressed air YUCK! i wonder if i could get away with buying a realforce on ITs credit card :P

to be fair when i replace everything with 10.10 compatible kit i may see if matias can do a good offer on a bulk order of 60 tactile pros :D

Yes, I agree, although before it catches crumbs, it is rather attractive.

I managed to sell mine some time ago on eBay. I was surprised anyone would actually pay money for the thing, but perhaps they are using it as an objet d'art (displaying it in a hermetically sealed case where it can't trap detritus). I liked looking at my Apple keyboard; I just couldn't type on it without keys jamming.

i think the original iMac one was worse but thats just me i guess they are both nasty

my work image is already out of date by the way got rid of the old monitor and replaced it with one that has a stand and does not have to be balanced on a box of paper :P

some reason the monitor in the photo has a design flaw the stand snaps off if you try to ajust the monitor :P, lucky it has VESA mounts so i will just get a cheap stand off eBay for it ( even tho its only VGA the older one looks way nicer that the new one i am using now) i have 3 of them that have done that , unfortunately 2 of them where kind enough to smash the LCD in the process

is that mouse a performance MX ? what do you think of it?, i find it ok but i think its not very accurate when making fine movements ( using a sniper in a game or something like that ) it kind of moves in little steps does not move smoothly and generally is a little laggyy. possibly i have just been spoilt by the accuracy of a slim blade i dunno but it does not feel anywhere near as good as my now broken deathadder i wish i had waited and got another one of them :( may sell it and do that its only like 3 months old

I'm pretty happy with it -- I've had it for at least 3 years now without issue.
Granted, my needs are pretty minimal. I don't game or do anything that needs pinpoint accuracy.
Edit - Honestly, I don't even notice any lag or other performance degradation but I'm not really looking for it either.

dont get me wrong its a well built mouse i like the scroll wheel unlock thing and its very comfortable, it may be something i can mess with in settings

Actually an old Eveready. I have a 2D version of it somewhere else but between the 3D Eveready Captain there and the 6D Maglite I can light up anywhere or break windows anywhere I need.

Welcome! Beautiful curved desk you've got! :o ;)
How do you like the U2414H?
My Eizo S1910 is dying and I can't decide between U2414H and U2415!

I got hold of a 33 years old pair of German speakers in a great condition yesterday (Canton Quinto 520).
They sound way better than my "old" speakers that I paid more than 4 times as much for :|

On the far right is the Mac Pro cylinder and a dismantled RF 87uw board. Under the bench is an aging Dell running Linux Mint 17 Xfce. Behind the center monitor is a Mac mini running Windows 7. The current keyboard in rotation is a RF 87ub 55g, which is shared by the three computers via a combination of a hardware KM switch and Synergy software. My refurbished XT is sitting on the parallel desk behind the chair.

They're good old fashioned speakers, shouldn't be too hard. Bonus points for a vintage amp with glowing tubes…

Yep, indeed. No tube amplifier though.. The speakers have a power rating of 65W and I drive them with a 25 year old Kenwood amp (KA-3020) with 2x60W so it's a great match both in power and age haha :D
