Jrrdw, looks like you live in a storage container with everything crammed in on the one desk. I guess you dont have to move if someone calls you though.

Normally I wouldn't participate in a thread like this, but I just spent a few weeks remodeling my office (an 18ft x 11ft room which is attached to my garage, separate from the house) and thought I'd show it off a bit. I did new carpet (it's that new indestructable carpet that you can pour coffee on and it doesn't do anything to it. I didn't get to pick the color; I just bought whatever they had that was cheap :) ) and re-wired half the electrical (the guy that built this garage was a f***ing moron). Also repainted, new molding, new desk.

My desk:

Desk w/ server rack visible on left side:

My (main, desktop) computer:

(AMD SanDiego 3700+ 2.2GHz @ 2.9 GHz, 1GB OCZPC400VXGold @2-2-2-5, 6600GT OC @ 575/1.4GHz, 74GB 10kRPM Raptor & 250GB WD
With my sentimental can of SPAM on top.

Other side of the room:
The couch and window, door to the garage on the left:

I'm going to mount that coat rack that's leaning there over the hole in the wall to the right of the door...

Door to outside and TV area:

Most of the server rack:

There's a KVM switch to control all 3 machines with one monitor, mouse, and keyboard. Machines are, from left to right:
Tivo/P2P machine (1.8GHz P4 w/ tv input card and 250gb storage), NetworkServer (2.8GHz P4 w/ 1TB RAID, running WinServer2k3), Firewall/Router (533MHz running Linux Debian acting as a firewall/router/IDS/Radius server for the network). I have another server I'll be bringing in for a gaming server sometime soon.

:) There are still a few things to do (Paint the door to outside, put switch plate covers over those couple electrical junctions in the walls) but it's looking pretty nice for a garage office.

</end_showing_off>

Peace,
Pete Zaria.

@Wow: Looks like we have the same keyboard... :) go logitech

The can of spam is an inside joke. I used to always tell my Mom she was spamming me whenever she'd ask me to do chores more than once. You know how mothers will do that... "Have you vacuumed your room yet?" "No, mom, I'll do it in a few minutes" ... 2 minuets later "Have you done it yet?" "Mom, it's been two minutes and I haven't even left your eyesight. How could I possibly have done it yet? Stop spamming me". So on my 18th b'day she gave me that can of spam. It's been there ever since.
Not that you really needed to know that.

Note the katana next to my desk in pic #2 :)

Peace,
Pete Zaria.

Thanks, dude. It's actually pretty low-budget though. I got the desk for $200 from a company that was going out of business. I've built most of the computers, and used quite a few spare parts I've collected over time, and from clients who were upgrading, etc... I'm also a huge eBay/Craigslist whore. Point is, you can actually do a lot with a pretty small budget given time and effort. Also takes a lot of organization. I'm sure you could do it too given a big room and a few hundred bucks.
Thanks for the compliments.

Peace,
Pete Zaria.

I win the mess contest. Maybe.
The second one doesnt really count as I haven't set up a network between my dads computer(first pic) and mine, and I have no internet.

Hey Pete, Im guessing that's your home office, but I would think that running internet servers over cable/dsl would be too slow and take up too much bandwidth, unless you have FIOS or something.

Also, Steam has in-game friends list, so you can join directly on someone instead of asking for the IP/server name/etc.

@Cod_Fillets
You'd be right about hosting servers except that I'm running dual 8megabit lines (essentially T1...) I get about 20mbit/down and about 8mbit/up between the two.

The two sites I'm hosting are both reasonably small and see less than 5k unique hits a month, the email server is for myself and 5 other users. Bandwidth hasn't been a problem to date.

I know Source has a friends list but for some reason it keeps randomly deleting people I add - and I've reinstalled Steam twice trying to fix this. So I don't bother anymore. Most of my Source friends use AIM anyway, so we just do it that way. Maybe Steam has fixed the friends list by now...

Peace,
Pete Zaria.
