Your Desk and the Things Thereon


(Anayo) #1

I’ve been wanting to create a topic like this pretty much forever, lol. Tell about what you have on your computer desk/workstation.

Um… let’s see. A “harvest of hope” magazine, a ziploc bag with something like $20 in it (change and bills and stuff), a notebook I used to record certain school-related things in, a big BLENDER 2.3 GUIDE book. This is the desk. My PC itself is mounted on a wooden shelf up above the desk where I sit.

On the shelf, which is up above but still counts as work station space, there is some music CD’s that aren’t mine, the box to the PC version of HALO, the box to a second-hand “World of Warcraft” game I can’t use (something to do with registration… stupid proprietary MMORPG), the box to my video card, a 256 MB USB stick, a headset, box to my mouse, and “More Short Stories by Mark Twain” on CD.

Post your junk here.


(Flurp) #2

on my desk there is a cpmuter (obviously), a case of Black and White 2, loads of crappy music CD’s (my sister owns them), a HP deskjet 5150, a tub of PVA glue, a lamp, a paint brush, a hairband, hair straightners(sp?), a roll of wool, microsoft flight simulator 2004, floppy disks, quake 3 arena, hair brush, university booklets, some sort of diary, and a piece of paper with details of my grapic card settings for Black and White 2… oh and a hairclip(s)

thats pretty much it, and as you can guess, this is my sisters room, she argued to the death with me over who gets the computer in whos room, and she won :<

[>] Keyboard

(indigomonkey) #13

I can’t even see what’s on my desk - there’s too much stuff on top of it!
Well, at the moment, I’m in a computer room, so there’s…
many computers
Many keyboards
many mice (or mouses!)
a random floppy disk
some spare ethernet cables
a phone
some paper
a stapler

However, when I get my new laptop (Acer Aspire 3003LMi) in about 2 weeks, I’ll be able to tell you what’s actually on my desk! Hmmm, by then this thread would probably be buried and I might be accused of necromancy.
Ah well!

Note the mini fridge on the left. Very handy for beverage disbursement. My computer desk was much more cluttered bevore I moved. Now it’s all nice and somewhat organized.
