Post your battle stations!


I was a bit worried about dust, though. It shows more on black/dark colors. But since it’s matte I can just wipe it off with a cloth without worrying about scratches or smudges like on shiny surfaces.

Right-angled SATA ports on the mobo aren’t the best though for this case. The cable holes next to the motherboard tray are agled (not flat) and longer connectors can bend. Maybe my SATA cables are just too stiff.


Storage Spaces or something else?


Nah, my motherboard has right-angled SATA ports and the clearance to the cable passthrough holes is a bit small. SATA cables with longer connectors can be problematic when used on the bottom SATA ports.


I don’t want the same keyboard/mouse for productivity and gaming, that would be horrible. Different tools for different jobs. Plus I have a kwm and ipmi/ssh on all my enterprise stuff. Not sure why anyone would ever want some buggy software when there are much better alternatives.



Funny you should say that. I’ve seen people use gaming peripherals for productivity, and they couldn’t imagine working without them, but you know your needs and preferences. Different strokes for different folks.


Ah man, I had 3 of the things on your desk.


Update lel

My linux box has the two smaller screens and at the moment my 06 imac is on my 1080 screen. I’m in the middle of a reorganization of everything ever in my room\office so this is super subject to change and alteration. Though i want a space for my laptops, so the kb in front of my imac has space to get stuffed under the monitor.

More pictures tomorrow lol.

Truly perfect in every way. Congratulations man! If you have a wife, she is also perfect.


There is a Borg efficiency to it.


Poor GPU


There she is in all her glory. It has been a slow work in progress with a few challenges along the way. The only thing left to do is to ditch Windows. Direct X is like cocaine. It will be featured on Pimp My Setup Episode 294.


where do you put your legs? Or do you stand next to the pc for the whole time?


I stand. Unless I’m watching anime, in which case I’m on my bed.

Standing is healthy yo. As long as you don’t lock your legs and stay still for extended periods of time.


I hate standing on one spot. I would rather walk circles than stand still for 10 min. I don’t think standing is healthy. You got that confused with moving.


I have one of those squishy mats to stand on.

Standing is healthy because it makes you more likely to move in general. Standing on its own is marginally more healthy than sitting. Marginally meaning “probably doesn’t undo what sitting for extended periods does” and also meaning “burns 30% more calories than sitting, but when sitting burns very little, 30% more isn’t worthwhile.” For reference, walking burns 230% more calories than sitting.
