Had a look about for the Currently Geeking thread, but it appears to have gone...

So. Picked up my new machine over the weekend, three gigahertz of lovely black-clad number-crunching madness. I know Iz, Dark and Motz probably all have equally fanboyish pictures, so I invite a little posting and appreciating of Heartlanders Computers.

Front

Side

Eagle-eyed fans will note the three CDs resting atop the tower, fine shiny gifts of noise from oop Norf, with thanks to Messrs. Scotty & Co!

We are not worthy!

Now, I have a CD-writer, and a DVD-writer. What's this weeding thing all about...?

As far as I can see, the only down-side to renting a room. That, and having your beer nicked from the fridge, squabbling over telly rights, and only getting the house to yourself when the bills need paying. Rolling Eyes

Thank-you for noticing though. I am attempting to cover as much of the wall with pictures as possible, but no man can afford that much blu-tack.

Yes, thank-you everyone, the stunning revelation that a single man living alone doesn't clean up very often - astounding.

As for the webcam, it's all perfectly innocent. I'm not in some Teen Movie, nor am I Dirty Den!

It's about tidying up your garden and you don"t need any writer for that, only a shovel or a can of gasolene and matches Wink

Seriously, nice machine Smile Welcome to the world of the happy Few Wink

Nice speaker set you have there, too, although the positioning ain't optimal It wasn't me...

And is that a new monitor as well? Surprised Seems like the multiple choice pad for a Fingerprint Forensics exam! Smile

Is that what they call 'the Sun'?

All the Sisters posters got block mounted when I moved. Smile the Joy Div one is safely rolled away along with all the others not currently in use.

Wow, top setup, BoF! We are not worthy!

Iz, as our resident Aural Guru, what would you recommend I do with my speaker arrangement? I've got the two stalks, and a subwoofer under my desk that tickles my toes...any recommendations?

Paul, I see your three CPUs, and raise you...FIVE, of which two are running at any given time. Wink
