My company is Macminicolo.net We colocate Mac minis from our customers to be used as servers. (Mail, Web, database, file serving, etc) All those minis are individually owned and we just maintain them.

This picture is actually 1.5 years old. We took it for our booth at Macworld 2007. We're now to about 500 minis.

I might be getting rid of it though for a wood one. Cats and glass don't mix too well unfortunately. I spend way too much time cleaning off paw prints.

I should really tidy my desk..
post #23 of 198
I think I like this one the best. I know when I get my MBP, I'm going to do something similar once I figure out how to mange the wires and still allow for a clean desk. I know II have a keyboard draw that will most likely hold the MBP and the monitor will be on top of the desk with my dell monitor. (It has mre USB prots than the pro does anyway. I'll only need to connect the DVI and USB cable to the laptop. Oh and the magsafe. Man, I'm stoked!

EDIT: Whoops, forgot to add appleinsider to .htaccess to allow it to hotlink :-p

Old pic I posted on AN a while ago, desk is usually far more cluttered :-p (and these days where the mac KB is there's an IBM model M). Under the desk are currently: A space for the new mac pro where my old one used to be, 3 debian based dev boxes (one an old sparc ultra60, 1 DP Athlon 1800+ machine, 1 amd64 3200+ machine), and an old G4 that I keep kicking around to play with PPC - the dev boxes are on the KVM on the desk, hooked up to the analog input on the 19", the mac pro uses the DVI inputs on the 19" and the 24".

On the far side on the other 19" screen is a dell gx260 that I use as a combination light gaming machine and windows workstation.

When I took the pic I was cleaning up, music and screensavers on random. Gates of Morpheus by Amethystium comes on, I turn around, and lo (creepiest thing ever):



Behind the MBP/left 19" is the reciever for my Onkyo S790, a yamaha dvd player (hooked into the 24 by component cables), an onkyo tape deck, an ancient toshiba vcr (also hooked into the 24) and the subwoofer for the S790.

Under the stereo is a beige g3 and a B&W g3, both with just network and power, both running debian. (copied and pasted the last 2 paragraphs from my post on AN because that hasnt changed)
