Awww, Geek Out!

Three months ago, I mentioned that I had begun to clean one of the two rooms in which I spend most of my time:

The other is “the Lab,” which is dominated by computers (presently 5 towers and 2 laptops) and has paper on nearly every surface.

That cleaning isn’t quite complete, but now at last I have a chance to illustrate what I mean by “dominated.” This afternoon I decided to send my dear friend Jesse a picture of my workspace. So I pushed back from the desk and snapped this (click for larger version):

a desk with 6 monitors and a phone

These connect to the towers under the table, which include Debian, Ubuntu, and XP machines. (The Mac mini, my new primary computer, can be seen on the desktop just behind the LCD.) As you might guess, it can get fairly hot in here.

For the record, I don’t usually have 6 monitors, I actually have 2 computers I’m upgrading/transferring here at the moment. On the other hand, this picture doesn’t include the laptops…

    Did you really reference “Le Freak”?

    Also, it is amusing that although the phones may be JSP sycophants the higher order electronics clearly see through the facade, and just stare blankly into space.

    You bet I did! I’ve never made any pretense of having sophisticated musical tastes…

    And as for “staring blankly”, actually they got bored. I had hunt down my wide-angle adapter, and then by the time I found an angle that crammed ’em all in, the monitors that were on had gone to sleep. Not that they had anything interesting on them anyway…
