Now that is a perfect back drop for some DOS gaming. You have quite the beautiful yard.

That is a sweet spot, from one "buckeye" to another. I'm in Bama these days tho but still migrate up north
to see family couple times a year.

Hey thanks guys! But man, the upkeep is almost like a second full time job.

Here's my current setup: (Spread across two locations!)

i like it, it sort of looks like a small start up company 😀 even the coffee fits that image!

Thanks man! 😀

I have a cup of coffee with me every waking moment! (It's one of the best things the world has to offer, in my opinion!)

How about this one:

That's a lovely setup on that desk coffee included. Do I spy a Logitech G19 in the bottom of the picture? I have a G15 and just ordered a G19 yesterday.

Cool, Love those UNIX computers. The 1990’s was an Awesome time in Silicon Valley. That’s when the BIG UNIX computer companies
Had campuses all over Silicon Valley and California. They Dominated the Computer industry.

I always wondered. These people with all these cold blue, magenta or whatever colored back lights. Do they actually use these or they are just for taking photos? I think they'd kill my eyes in less than an hour.

My computing area. Just moved into a new house. Can display my collection a little better now. Even had enough room in the closet of this room to set up a small tech station area that i have always wanted.

I literally never used it. It was for the picture. I thought leds would be awesome, but it just bothers me.

Same for those fancy lights in modern pc's. I don't need that. Rather spend that money on a Gpu.

Hello, could you please tell me the specific model of the beige CRT on the left of your first picture? I suspect it was the one my father had, I've been trying to find it for a long time. Lovely setup by the way. Thanks in advance!

Amazing setup. Wow!! I wish I had the foresight to keep all the boxes to my old hardware and games.

Thought I would share a picture of my home office. It look me about one year working on it a little each day to re-do the room with new flooring, paint , trim and build the giant desk and set it all up and wire. I wish I had more space as I have a closet with a rack full of stuff I cannot have setup and running. But I do like to swap machines out and enjoy them often.
