Oh, I have a globe too. (For fondling in quiet moments of world-dominating desire.) And a frickin' G4, baby!

This is my unintentionally retro standing desk. Not the fastest beast around, but good for my back and for playing podcasts.

The SSK is, of course, worth more than the 17" iMac. Which I picked up for free a few years ago! Note the PowerPC port of Firefox…

Too much sitting is becoming a pain in the arse - so I made a standing dock for my new notebook:

I saw this before seeing your picture and I thought you were fondling an old globe of the world in a sinister way... like a James Bond villain. (...as I have done oh so many times before...)

A beamspring practically converts anything into a standing desk all by itself. I was reading through an IBM brochure yesterday which described the Model Fs as "low profile". Then it showed a beamspring and said "typewriter style keyboard", while moving swiftly on!

My globe is old enough to be thoroughly confused about the world. It shows the full British, French, German and Japanese Empires; but has the Soviet Union in place of the Tsar. I'm sure it's post 1945 though.

I'd like to see Apple come out with beam spring notebooks. I can imagine the traditional marketing nonsense, with a Jonathan Ive quote:

"We decided to rethink everything we ever knew about keyboards. Design isn't just about being thin, but about enhancing the entire user experience. With the new MacBeam Pro, the keyboard response is just incredible. It brings a whole new level of engineering excellence. At 5.5 inches thick and 23 lbs, we believe this is the most substantial notebook we've ever made."

"I think people will really be able to feel for themselves that we've done nothing short of reinvent the very concept of notebook ergonomics. With the new integrated wheels we created for this design, you'll get the best of both worlds in everyday use. The reassuring heft of a cast iron appliance, and the luggable lightness of a trolley-wheeled portable device."

At least it would still be far lighter and smaller than my other "portables" - the Kaypros and IBM Portable Personal Computer (5155).

What's the hub? Look chunky for just a USB lump.

It's this thing. Two USB ports isn't enough when you want to connect a keyboard, trackball, numpad, music player, external disks and numerous flash thingies. 16 ports is a bit overkill, but it's better than... uh... underkill.

isn't it uncomfortable to type on that board cause of that missing front piece? :shock:

A bit... but I plan on replacing the piece after I paint it. (black or silver)

I can type... as webwit puts it.. like I'm "scratching a window" - so I don't always need to rest my wrists.

And that's why you should buy a 49 port hub.

One set of Cherry profile doubleshots:

My home Filco has the same doubleshots but with blue and green reversed. Neither scheme really does anything for me, not like I imagined it would, and the wrong profile caps are a bit incongruous, which is why I posted a request for similar profile black modifiers to help reduce the mismatch. (No reply, though.)

I also requested several times for green/blue F keys for Topre — no reply to any post, but 002 was kind enough to send over some spares.

(I don't know what's happened to the two group buys I'm waiting on — one day I'll see if Taiwan Tai-Hao's green works any better.)

Crappy photo of my setup, I have misplaced the flash for my Sony NEX5, soooo... it's not really as dark as it looks, stupid camera!
3x27" BenQs, I have a 4th one that will be on top of the centre screen, need to find a decent wallmount-bracket first.

I decided to try my hand at a wood wrist-rest for my Realforce 87u55g. The Realforce's are very low profile and most rests are way too thick. I made this from Cocobolo wood with a low profile to fit my preference, it also sets off a plain black RF.

I'm usually too lazy to do desktop wall papers...but these are a bunch of keyboard patents.
Each monitor is a different patent, any guesses?
