Only the stool looks a bit "humble" for such a desk. :mrgreen:

Wow, the powder coat turned out really nice. Looks like it's fresh off the assembly line 8-)

It turned out to be very beautiful. There is a difference to the plastic, which is darker, but it was a good choice to let this do professionally.

Thanks for the kind words. I am definitely feeling fortunate being able collecting all those items in my office...
I do have a proper chair as well, but moved it out of the picture, as you might have guessed ;).

The viewing angle usually gets me there, seems most LCDs are made for the landscape orientation and have odd color/contrast shifts the other way. Could be I'm just picky. Since summer is rolling in I think I'm going to take this setup down though and go down to just dual 27" on the desktop and maybe that 27" for my laptop. Six displays seriously put out the heat, not to mention the extra heat from the extra graphics card in my box running those top 25" displays. Was nice during the winter though!

By looking into 30 pages of this topic, I realized some people have more expensive keyboards than desk and chair. Strange priorities :).

Come to think of it, the chair under my butt right now was manufactured in 1983. It's older than (almost) all the computer hardware I got. I don't know how much it did cost back in the day, but it's paid for itself several times over, I'd say.

Reinstated my trackball to my desk. As much as I want to use it before I struggle to keep it due to the long messy cable.

So decide to change the cable, and while I was on it did a led/glow mod and add 2 buttons.

It's a pity my LCD died and I no longer have my Commodore brand desk, so I can't have this setup anymore:

You have better chair and better keyboard than a monitor.

For me it still one of the best glossy TNs available (W2207h, Innolux panel). As I only like glossy monitors and can't stand IPS glow, my guess is that the next upgrade will only happen when OLEDs become mass-produced :P

My computer room is not as claustrophobic as it looked in the last shot. Here's a wider angle:

The desk is facing a mirrored closet containing another 25 or so computers and keyboards.

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:

Too bad. You could have become rich by hiring John Malkovich, telling him to imagine a keyboard with X, X and X features, and then picking it up.

You mean the 800XL or the 600XL? (I also have 2 more 800XLs and 1 NOS in box 800XL) Notice there is a SDrive NUXX attached to the 800XL. (and a NOS Tac 2 joystick)

The Amiga 500 has a Viper 520 accelerator, DCTV, etc..

Yes, that's my (NOS) ALPS SKFL 800XL. Sitting on the Kaypro "New 2", there's Futaba ML 600XL.

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

Just reconfigured things after getting a new PC. The cables hanging from the desk are all the USB cables I find myself needing all the time. I'm trying to figure out a way to organize them a little bit.
