That's real swell, I can even see a red nipple in there. I'd like to have one of those industrial minis.
The colour schemes are very good too; it looks good with both white and grey case.

One of my Industrial minis might be going to Korea..
something might come back..:)
I've only seen 8 of them ever. 2 sold at clickykeyboards, 6 sold by rarekeyboards at ebay. He sold me his first and last one. I bought many of my Model Ms from him and he tipped me. Then I posted a tip on geekhack after the first, and the next 4 went within half an hour. Ripster got one, some other geekhacker got one for sure (forgot his name), dunno about the other two.. probably geekhack lurkers.

This is like some treasure hunter movie.. even my computer is making sounds in anticipation. Maybe I should make an ebay account, just in case of incredible finds.

Also I bet if computer magazines still had "send in a photo" events nowadays (do computer magazines even still exist?) you would win with these. I remember my uncle once sent in a really embarrassing picture of him with his Amiga on the bed which got printed. Epic lulz 20 years later.

Furniture is overrated. Your collection never ceases to amaze me and holy crap, I just realized that they make an M, I can't believe I never noticed that before, it becomes really obvious once you see it.:shock:

I wanted to do I ♥M (I, ehm, had the keyboards for it). But both the space and the limited camera angle prevented me from it. I'd need to haul them to a bigger space, outside perhaps, and have a better camera. Although this will do fine.

Just make sure you pick a day with 100% guaranteed sun. Then again, some people put these in the dishwasher.. eh

You really should get a wide-angle lens some time!

I have to wonder too... where did the furniture go? Or do you randomly happen to have a ball room for the casual dancing parties you host, or better a room dedicated for keyboards?!

It's the room I use for my ballet practice.
I also hauled the furniture to another part of this room.
I had to climb to the ceiling to take this picture.
