My Hot new Desk setup

Unread postby Raion-Fox » Sat Mar 04, 2017 11:34 pm

Apologies for the mess of wires.

My desk is the IKEA Micke, the wood stand where the O2, Indy, Challenge all sit is an IKEA Rast, and the far end where the laptops are is my W530 buried under wires on its dock and Kuran chugging away like the FoxBSD compile slave it is in the far back with the router on top of it. I run WAN through my house using PowerLine adapters. I recommend them if like me you have an old house with plaster walls in most of it.

Also been doing something similar. A few days ago dragged an old fake wood veneer desk out of the basement to put the SGI computers in and to keep them away from the sunlight.

Have the mess of wires under my main desk, really gotta get those cleaned up. 2 years ago put wired Ethernet in the wall - which conveniently was against the pipe chase that goes down to the basement, then it's easy connected to the main and unavoidable ISP router - double NAT setup here.

I also just got a cheap folding table to leave my computer set up on. Since I moved last year I've just been putting it on the kitchen counter or dining table when I want to play a game and then putting the paraphernalia away afterwards.

Not sure if it's going to last tho... seems like a lot of space to me for just a computer that I normally use on the sofa anyways (hard to use the GPU and mouse on the sofa!) Or I'll buy "real furniture" and keep it out :)
