Here's a view of the pointy end of what I laughingly refer to as my work area, where all the building, testing, and other general purpose stuff goes on. This image shows some of the assorted bits and pieces I have scrounged up over the last little while and a bit of my library of CDs, DVDs, and a few of my books for research. What you don't see at the bottom of the picture are all the monitors I have stacked on the floor, over top of all the machines I have scrounged and am in the process of rebuilding.
