but yea... i ALWAYS have music going some place. its to the point now where its strange if i dont hear music going in the background.

it drives my Jina crazy some times when shes talking to me but she understands and actually helps me find some hard to find records (she actually found me an ORIGINAL Release or The Wall.)

i love music... which is why i need to put off getting a sound card so i can get a new amplifier for my stereo because i droped it the other day and now it has the buzzzzzz or death oh well... it was 22 years old already and the rest of the stack works perfectly so its ok

Nice desk! And nice monitor/TV setup

I'm happy with my desk, picked it up 2nd hand from some guy for £30 and although it's pretty plain it's 5' wide and has a higher shelf for monitors and so on which you can store stuff under as well. I also made a really amateur storagey thing for games, DVDs and CDs.

I generally avoid glass desks, they're just too fragile to be around me. I got wood.

im generally really careful with my stuff so im not worried about it i have a glass desk here at work too and i have never had a problem with it and the glass on that one is actually about 33% thicker than the stuff here. it was just the most elegant one in my price range that was the closest in size to the space i had available. and actually the only one that didnt feel really cheap the rest were just plywood and vinyl lamination which just docent stand up well to the occasional spilled drink..

any way.. im quite happy with it. and thats the portent part is it not?

For some reason, I was under the impression that you quoted that picture into BOC, and that my reply was in the BOC thread

As long it works for you, it's great.
I'm too reckless with my stuff. I walk in and throw my keys on my desk. My multi-tool kit usually lands with a bit of a bang too.

Of course that's the most important thing

Different things suite different people. I've never had a glass desk, so I don't know how well it would work for me. I think that wood would look better in my room though.

And Leathermen are great, I would never use one if I had one though :/

yea my room is a weird meld of clasicical really dark woods and modern metals so i thought this would be a good meld between them. the wood and glass matches the sterio stack (behind the picture frame) and the black metal legs work with every thing else.


as for the Leatherman... i use mine several times a day every day... even when i dont think i will i end up needing it for something. i feel weird when i dont have it on me now


in fact its the only tool i used to put that desk together

The desk I have has pretty thick glass. I dont think you could very easily break it without trying or being an idiot. Plus my computer is on the 3rd shelf of the part on the side of the desk. So thats pretty high up there. Dont worry striker.

Z-Line seems to make some pretty good stuff for a great price.
