    My job involves a lot of crazy. Ardi can vouch for that

    I thought they were lost when the news crew came through the data center? Also yes, our job does involve a lot of crazy... and dumb users.

    I like the Star Trek, Fallout, and HL paraphernalia as well. Crowbar on the wall - perfect.

    What you don't see is that the crowbar is labeled "fsck -fy"

    I was gonna put the -v flag on it but as one of the sysres guys mentioned, you can only get so verbose with a crowbar.

    Also, the postits were "found" shortly after the news crews left

    I still need to purchase a FUBAR and mount it behind class on my desk.

    Where the magic happens V2.0: Electric Boogalo

    My desk, in my office in my house. (It feels so strange to say MY house and actually mean it).

    The newly constructed with my own two hands and the sweat of my brow desk. Because somewhere, deep down inside, I knew that no prefab desk would ever satisfy me. I felt a strange sense of accomplishment when I finished constructing this and started setting up my electronics on it. This feeling quadrupled when I placed my level on it and found it to be level in all directions.

    Don't have any better pictures, but my keyboard (Logitech G15) is on a tray where my chair is.

    Ardichoke- desk looks awesome! Need more light to get a better picture of the materials you used! :)

    I think it's more that I need a better camera. My Nexus One may be 5MP, but my 4.1MP Canon point and shoot seems to take better pictures. Just need to find the damn thing.... and replenish my supply of batteries.

    As for material, I just used some cheap pine I picked up at Home Depot. Took the time to stain it and apply a few coats of polyurethane though.

    Is my desk. I moved it into a room in the back of the house because I got tired of people coming in and staring over my shoulder and thetraffic outside the hallway of the study tended to me quite noisy.

    On the left, you can see various anime plushies. On the right is a small guitar, a statue of Ezio Auditore, a Red Dragon figure, and (covered in the shadow of the shelf) Tool's 10,000 Days. Also visible is my Razer Lachesis, part of my Logitech G15, the box for Poekmon SoulSilver, a SLD report card, and a prom ticket. The best part is visible on the bottom left, my computer with a Razer sticker and Fallout 3 on it.

    Time for a thread revival. Due to the fact that I'm a horrible malcontent, I've moved departments a couple times at work... which means I've also moved desks. The latest iteration of my work desk:

    I actually freaking love these types of threads.

    Lets see, I see Birds of Fire by Mahavisnhu Orchestra, Fluttershy, A glasses case, a Rush Wallet, A badass Phantom Case that I got from Icrontic, and King Crimson on the screen. What a party!

    Time for a thread revival. Turns out I have much more workable space on my desk than I thought... all I had to do was clear off the clutter and move my tower back below the desk. Go figure.

    I LOVE that desk. Classy.
  • ardichokeardichoke Buttes Master B Lansing, MI Icrontian
    Thanks. I think it came out pretty good for around $50 worth of supplies and 2 days work. Only thing I plan to change is I want to round the edges down and put a better coat of polyurethane on it. Cleaning it off was the first step toward doing that.

    I loves me some Ikea.

    You know it! Fairly cheap and decent, hell yeah! I swear 99% of our house is IKEA. Well, all but the dining table, couch and coffee table.
