Describe your personal cyberspace

I started this thread over a year ago and thought I'd bring it back up again as we have many new members and lots of us have moved.

So let's hear all about your personal cyberspace. Is your desk a mess? Is it littered with paper, coffee cups, post its, CD's all over the place. Come on describe it for us.

My cyberspace is a large room with 2 big windows. My desk is too small and I struggle to keep all the CD's stacked nicely. Half the time a speaker is hanging off the desk, cords wrapped around chair legs, remote controls for equipment not in this room, empty glasses (2 at the moment and 1 coffee cup). But I did manage to resolve my missing mobile phone problem, got one with the 'hands free' option. Will they ever make a desk big enough for computers?

My desk is 6'x3' metal desk. I was at the Habitat Re-Store looking for something when I saw it and I knew I had to have it.

On top of the desk is a hutch made of 3/4" plywood. It holds the printer and scanner and books and a decapitated doll.

Behind me the wall is lined with a government surplus filing cabinet from when they still thought filing cabinets should weigh as much as a house, a beer fridge, a white metal shelf thing (not sure why that's here), and a china cabinet that Mrs. Rev refuses to put someplace else.

Well, instead of describing, I took a picture and uploaded it :P

BTW, my desktop in Canada is much much larger and usually contains neatly organised papers, bills, work documents, cds, etc. (Oh, and a much larger computer monitor and massive surround sound)

That's far too neat, Andem. How the hell can you get any work done there? You need to get some papers and strew them about, then leave some 1/2 empty coffee cup about and leave a few beer bottles jammed into the nooks and crannies. You should also have an overflowing ashtray perched precariously someplace.

Nah, I clear up the coffee mugs every evening and the beer bottles every morning... and smoking goes on on the balcony that you can hardly see through the window behind my computer

The best system for keeping your desk clear is to pile up bottles until every wednesday afternoon like below, and then recycle/return them.



It makes life much easier!

That's a pretty darn neat desk there Andem, I just know you've broken some rule of desk organization and the desk gods are gonna get you. Watch your fingers.

Man, I can't even type without a smoke in my mouth.

The half-empty coffee cups make excellent fire extinguishers when I set my garbage can on fire by emptying my overflowing ashtray, so I have to keep those around.

The beer bottles have to stay because I've stacked papers on them for easy access.

My desk is the same size as the Rev's, 6x3 feet, but it's made of wood, like most desks. I made it myself. On top if it we find a lamp, a printer, a computer, a monitor, a keyboard, a mouse, speakers, the biggest desk organizer in the world (which I also made myself, and no it doesn't help much, it just keeps my pens from rolling off the desk), a clock, several piles of books and magazines and CDs, some rock samples, a little wire rack holding assorted items I have yet to deal with, a phone, a camera (Nikon Coolpix 4600 digital, wonderful little tool), some batteries, newspaper clippings, a stapler, a laminated desk pad that has a world map on it, a USB hub with a floppy drive plugged into it, a little statue of a laughing Buddha, several pads of paper of assorted sizes, and an empty glass that only a few minutes ago was full of Crown Royal and coke.

I need a refill.

I gave up on desks. I use an old but big kitchen table. I have my cpu underneath. I have sub (10"),two front speakers, printer/scanner/fax/copier combo on table, centre speaker on monitor, rear speakers on stands behind me. I made a little stand for extra ink,paper,pens,pencils,calculator,paper clips, stapler, contacts (friends,government). I have 3 20 gauge shotgun shells in there as well. Why? I do not know. Maybe luck?

I also have 2 Canada cooler coasters I got for free when I emailed them with a complaint on table. Perfect for beer and cider. Bottles only of course. Lots of leg room and room for food and crumbs to fall. ha ha
