A couple more photos, just to see if I can make my fellow geeks jealous.
I am nearing critical mass in terms of the number of homeless computers I’ve taken in. This wheeled shelf and a rather pricey six-slot power strip seem to keep things organized though.
My wiring and strapping isn’t the best, but I wanted something I could keep organized and still pull apart at a moment’s notice.
Next to it is the scallywag 700Mhz Celeron, which looks a little better after a cleaning.
One odd thing about this machine, if you look close, is that the speakers are actually mounted on the hinge. It means the lid doesn’t block the sound when it’s closed. Ironic, therefore, that they sound awful.
Finally, at lower left is the Mebius, which is really just resting there after being a surrogate two or three times over the past week or so.
Oddly enough, it was just as useful (although dreadfully slow) to install Debian for the Celeron on that machine, as it was to install it for the 120Mhz Pentium I’m using now. Of course, that means the Celeron is running i486 Debian. …
Altogether, my desk is pleasantly free of junk right now.
A clean desk is the sign of a disturbed mind.
Of course, if things get any more dense in here I’m going to need to free up that bottom rack, and trap some computers there. That, however, could trigger the herd to panic. …
