Geek Anvil (currently geeking...)

Does exactly what it says on the tin. Some of the nonsense contained herein may be very loosely related to The Sisters of Mercy, but I wouldn't bet your PayPal account on it. In keeping with the internet's general theme nothing written here should be taken as Gospel: over three quarters of it is utter gibberish, and most of the forum's denizens haven't spoken to another human being face-to-face for decades. Don't worry your pretty little heads about it. Above all else, remember this: You don't have to stay forever. I will understand.

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.

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!

:notworthy:

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. :roll:

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 ;)

Seriously, nice machine :) Welcome to the world of the happy Few ;)

Nice speaker set you have there, too, although the positioning ain't optimal :innocent:

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

The photo from my old place? Yup, plenty of Sun from that view. Trees and mountains and stuff too.

Wow, top setup, BoF! :notworthy:

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:
