»All things Macintosh »Who's paying for all this, anyway?

I was doing my daily read of the FAQ and noticed that it is time for the annual Workstation Slobs thread. Let's see what you've got.

Something's been keeping me away from the tower in the basement, so I've been doing most everything from PB12.

Hey, did yours come with a manual, too? Nothing in it is right, by the way...

I was going to merge some photos but it was too much trouble. Second photo is everything that I moved from the desktop.

Hey nccycle, is that the 'cannibal' Eddy Merckx I see on your wall?

Good eye yes it is. About 1/3 of my room is "decorated" with bicycle racing related stuff and that photo of Eddy is something I got when I first got into bicycle racing many long years ago. I once had a chance to meet Eddy in person at a local bike shop when he did a PR tour to promote his new bike company.

Actually that is some hand cleaner stuff. An attempt to wash my hands more often and try to avoid getting sick this winter. So far it has worked.

Besides cleaning up before taking the photo defeats the whole slob image.

I shouldn't think of my setup as a "Workstation".

It's not job-related.
It's not performance/speed related.
It's not expensive.

It's pretty much just about being fun-related.

But the user-area is pretty messy and sloppy.

From left:

Unused 13" HiRez Monitor sitting on a 6115 case, worn-out HP 550c printer.

PowerMac 7100s, left one 56 MB ram with G3 upgrade, right 40 MB ram - both running Mac OS 8.1
Bigger monitor is 14" Multiscan.

(L) Can't see the details but
Easy Beat Midi software playing James Brown Papa's Got A Brand New Bag mid file as a classical reed ensemble, lol

(R) Avid Video 2.0 showing that Pepsi iTunes ad in its timeline.
(Orig MP4 was exported as H 263 mov (240x130) so Quicktime 5 could play it)

Grey flat panel left-speaker made by Monsoon.
The white external scsi case is a Radius Studio Array external HDD (one of its two hard drives is not working)
which sits on top of a black Magnavox cheapo VCR.

Under the black VCR:
Macintosh IIsi (20 MHz Motorola 68030 cpu, 33 MB ram, 160 MB hard drive)
Edit Blazing!! with Mac OS 7.1

Under the Mac IIsi:
PowerMac 8100/110 (nearest the wall) and a Quadra 840av (front).
The Radius Studio Array scsi external hard drive case would normally be hooked up to the 8100.
The black VCR is hooked up to the Quadra 840av via RCA cables (Cheapo VCR doesn't have S-Video).

Macintosh 13" Color Display in the corner is playing an Animatrix svcd via Apex DVD player (under 13" Display).
The Apex is connected by S-Video cable to Radius 24TV frame grabber NuBus video card in the IIsi.
Movies play great and appear to be millions of colors too.

The two towers:
Performa 6400 and PowerMac 8600 w/G3/400 MaxPower upgrade sit under red-orange metal table.

All Macs are working.

The three 17" monitors:
Gateway ev700 (vga)
NEC MultiSync XV (vga)
Apple Studio Display

The two pc monitors sit on top of Quadra 605 cases....just the right height.
The NEC is hooked up with an adapter to the G4/400's el cheapo PCI xMicro 8 MB vid card.
The Apple Studio Display is hooked up to the G4/400's nVidia GeForce 2, 32 MB AGP card.

The left-most small Apple keyboard is hooked up to a ADB switchbox so four Macs can use it.
The big white keyboard is hooked to the 8600 tower.
The grey keyboard's for the G4/400....2 button scroll-wheel Logitech mouse on the right.

A PowerMac 6320 desktop sits unused on the floor; This was my TV Mac.

The small pair of grey slim external speakers at either end of this Mac grouping are Monsoons.
The Sub Woofer sits under the Monitor bench.

There's a separate circuit fuse for all this,
and the grounding is to a buried copper bar.

OMG. I bow in your presence.

I have that many computers, but they are not organized any more since my mother-in-law moved in and took my computer room. They are in a pile in the garage.

It's nice to see all that old hardware up and running.

BTW, I notice you have an old UMAX Astra scanner as well.

Mine spent an embarrassing amount of time in the same position, especially after I couldn't find any OS X drivers for it. Now I use a hand me down Agfa scanner. It works great!
