    1. Digital pictures with timestamp = what the fuck?

    2. Oldest monitor in history olol

    3. I have that case in my arcade machine, used to be the wife's case. Did you have a problem with the LEDs burning out on the front too?

    1. stfu. I didn't think to turn it off.

    2. I know. :-( But the 32" Samsung serves as a more than adequate alternative when gaming.

    3. Not at all. Never had a problem with either of the LEDs, and I've been running this case for about five years now.

    I must say I'm surprised you didn't give me hell about the god-awful curtains. I will pre-emptively defend myself by saying I'm lucky I get to have most of the room the way I want it. If I lived alone, you'd swear I was gay if you saw the rest of our house. Sharing a bedroom with a member of the female persuasion often leads to....compromises.
    Compromises to my manhood. D:

    She has terrible taste (when it comes to decorating, anyway. :winky:) I can freely say that because she doesn't browse PA.

    Judging from the posts right before your workstation pics, I expected the following criticisms:

    1) Lacks guns.

    2) Lacks beer and liquor.

    3) Lacks shit.

    Did I do that right?

    What your place most certainly doesn't lack is a trio of ready-to-strike Jasons, because two masked psychopaths just aren't enough to keep a setup like yours safe from sex-crazed teenagers.

    You know, most parents just use a browser filter to keep their kids off the porn sites.

    Oh Christ, I'm not a parent. Not yet, anyway. Thanks for wishing my life away for me, though. D:

    No, in all seriousness I'm just a Jason fanatic myself, and the lady loves horror movies so I can get away with putting that kind of juvenile shit around my rig. She also happens to share my love of Pearl Jam and Lord of the Rings. It's never hard to remember why I've stuck with her for so long. :D

    Truth be told, I don't own guns (Not the kind that shoots bullets, anyway. I prefer slashing weapons, and those are in the closet, not to be used for display.) I don't keep the hooch next to my computer because that can lead to bad things for your hardware. And if by "shit" you mean feces, we usually flush that stuff down the commode. If by "shit" you mean "clutter, items that reflect uncleanliness, and general filth", then all I can say is that we're fairly clean people. *shrug* Though I understand why one might expect to see a workstation area filled with that kind of stuff, especially from what I've seen in these kinds of threads here. Some of you guys are filthy hobos and I cannot understand how you have not yet been overthrown by the accumulated cache of squalor that engulfs your computer area. :lol:

    EDIT: What the hell. All this talk about guns...

    Airguns, nothing special. Kinda old. They shoot 4.5mm pellets. I Inherited them from a relative, and didn't think they were worth showing off, but who am I to say?

    Hehe, thanks.

    The Cthulhu watched over the building of that particular PC. Occasionally, threads of black and evil rise from my apartment, clouds of toxic darkness surround the area... but I just come in here and ask him to lighten up a bit and it's usually all good. One doesn't simply walk into this room without resulting in some sort of curse upon them. He's a pretty cool guy, though.

    Widescreen: 1680x1050 is very popular, but larger monitors typically do 1920x1200... but I prefer the 1080 option for natural HD viewing

    The summer workstation at work, before it was raped by the new shipment of Toshiba tablets. It's a gigantic mess right now.

    The workstation/funstation at home, pretty much where I spend most of my time:

    My bookshelf, filled mostly with games. PC shelf is two rows, mind you.

    The spy mask is a prized possession. Considering it for halloween, on account of I have a pinstripe suit. It's worth more than I am, and is not red nor blue, but it is still striped.

    Its taken me a long time to get a desk and computer that I could feel was good enough to show off, so here it is.

    Here is the top part of the desk. The main monitor is a 22 inch, and the one to the top left is a 19 inch. I use IRC a lot so its great to have it up on the higher monitor.

    Here is the bottom of the desk which holds the tower, subwolfer, and printer.

    Is the comp cooled by Dr. Pepper or something?

    Is it a dip (or some other) receptacle?

    It is a mystery.
