I've always thought it would be awesome to be able to surf the 'net or watch youtube or whatever while sitting on the toilet.

Updated the art above my desk.

While I was at it, I swapped out the Dragon Trust Voodoo2 cards in my retro rig with a pair of Diamond Monster 3D II cards. Also swapped out my Creative TNT2 card with a Diamond Viper V770 Ultra and upped the Celeron 300A to a P3 600E.

Done some changes in my room since the last time I posted the pictures. Here's my new arrangement:

This is my room where I sleep, which is coincidentally my gaming/vintage-pc-tinkering/reading/playing music room! :happy:

Heheh...yeah, easier to go to sleep while playing a RPG in the PS1/2/3, when getting frustrated getting killed by a boss creature (or even a mini-boss) for the 100th time!

I've got used to the stickers after forgetting to take them off 2 years ago. It's as if I've become immune to them! :happyhappy:

Much better now. I can stretch my legs completely to the front under the coffee table, (yeah, that's one of my home's unused coffee table, which fortunately is not being uh..used! :happyhappy:) while leaning against the pillows while gaming. Very comfortable. Actually I wanted the arrangements to be like this. Personal preference, I guess. I'm still looking for a nice comfy floor-chair/bean-bag kind of thingy.

Spoiler Below!: :happyhappy:


Yep, playing DIG in my classic system which you can see at the right of the table. All you have to do is just make a video call to the shuttle pilot (- I think Ken Borden), to release the "PIG" so that you can proceed with your mission and plant the explosives on the asteroid.

I'm elsewhere on another planet. Stuck there. I'm trying hard, breaking my head to decipher out the situation there. I'm trying REALLY hard without even reading a hint on what to do next. I don't wanna spoil my experience.

EDIT:

After that part where you're stuck, I'm sure you'll be able to make it to another planet without any problems. There's something that will happen there which has not taken place (maybe have taken place but not in THIS manner) in any other adventure games. The atmosphere gets dead serious at that moment!

What's that little breakout-box-looking-doodad behind the joystick, next to the A1200?
