What do your have on your table right now?

1 acer laptop with windows ME

1 ibook

1 hp external cd rewriter

1 graphic board (table?)

3 cds (=os) of linux

2 different windows os-cds

about 300 cds

8 albums for the cds

1 box of 50 cds (empty nearly)

1 nokia mobile phone

6 sim cards for 1 mobile phone

1 battery charger

1 cable for pclinq

100g dark chocolate

34 lollipops

1 digicam

1 light for the keyboard of the laptop

1 instant tattoo pen

3 floppies

1 white correcting pen

17 drawings in ink a4

1 bottle of sun tan protection

1 needle

1 pair of sunglasses

Now what's on YOUR table??

    I don't really have a proper "table", but I have a bar dividing the kitchen from the living area. On it is a microwave, some mail and yesterday's newspaper.

    If by "table" you mean desk, then that's a bit more:

    - G4 SuperDrive iMac (with those little round speakers on either side)

    - Toshiba cable modem

    - Iomega USB 100MB Zip drive

    - a black Sharpie marker

    - little spiral notebook I got from the Apple Store in Glendale (with blue Aqua Apple logo on front)

    - 6 Zip disks (for quick/easy shuttling)

    - 11 blank TDK CD-R disks

    - various CDs (backup CDs, iTunes mix CDs, etc.)

    - cool lamp from IKEA with translucent orange fixture on it (of course)

    - Contour UniTray mousepad...again, in wonderful translucent orange

    Down below, I have an iSub, a small garbage can and a power strip/surge protector.

    Dude, I don't mean to be rude or anything, but your setting yourself up with that last post. It is very tempting to make a rude and nasty joke, but I will leave it to the other "professonials" here. :cool:
