how much did u drink

I think he pissed too much and his water concentration from his body is too low. The human brain is 80% water, so less water => less brain => kirby. That's why a kirby is so round.

Hey, I love your mousepad.

Here's a picture of mine. Somewhat messy right now.

Edit: Bugger that was huge! Will return with more appropriately sized image!

Edit 2: Okay hows this...

You seem like an intelligent person.
The clues supporting my hypothesis: The glasses, the notebook, the elephant, and the hole in the wall.

I wish I could claim that hole in the wall was here when I moved in, unfortunately it was caused by my improper shelf removal techniques.

Does it normally look like this or did you set it up for the photo?

Normally looks more or less like this, though I am usually wearing the glasses if I'm looking at the laptop, and there are often books/papers/pads knocking around if I'm "working".

This is it at it's tidiest as I had to clear everything off in order to put out some food for some guests; took the picture just after I put everything back on.

Used to be a lot messier, but recently I've been trying to reduce clutter, partly why I ditched my monitor.

No, I don't need all those screens, I normally only use two of them.

**EDIT: Include my home battlestation

I could do with a shot of rum right now.

My current setup is... nothing.
[Image: Zlau3KX.jpg]

I believe this is cheating because I cleaned my desk yesterday and removed my second display since I'm looking forward upgrading my whole setup.

On desk:
- Lenovo Thinkpad T480 (Bought last week)
- Steinberg UR22 mkII USB Audio Interface which I use mostly for recording music covers and other video projects.
- MoFang Jiaoshi Mf5S (5x5x5 Rubik's cube): i've always liked Rubik's cubes. Only to add some color to my desk while I get maybe some plants.
- WD My Passport Ultra 1TB: using a 500GB SSD this comes very useful.
- Linchpin by Seth Godin: one of my favorite writers. Bought this book this weekend.

Plan to buy:
- Mouse
- Mousepad
- Keyboard
- Monitor
- A nice green plant

There's not much ricing on my computer nowadays, using a pretty much default XFCE with some keybindings.

Here's my work battlestation. There's not much to it, pretty generic stuff.

Here's my battlestation at work.

[Image: StNkdtw.jpg]

Basic Toshiba laptop
Coolermaster rapid-i blue switches mechanical keyboard along with a wrist pad.
I don't remember what those earphone are.
A mousepad that I also don't remember about.
The mouse is microsoft "basic optical mouse", it does the job.
The usual notepad with a pen.

I'll post my home station when I'm back.

EDIT: here's my humble homestation:

[Image: jOTTE7D.jpg]
It's the same keyboard and mousepad from work but I reverse the mousepad because it's more comfortable on a plastic table like this.
There's a thermos to keep hot water to prepare tea without having to move from my place.
A chair on the side, because a lot of time time I'm joined by someone.
The "illuminati" pyramid contains game controllers.
Probably the best part about this setup is not about the setup itself but the amount of light I have in my room. There are 4 led lights which always make it seem like it's day time.

Well, well, well... It doesn't look impressive, but I won many battles with that station!
I'm "planning" on changing the monitor and keyboard, but it's been 2 years now that I'm "planning", so...

Sorry for the potato quality, my phone back camera is dead, so you get a selfie!

Wonder how it managed to take a selfie. w/e

Any reason for your mouse being at a different level? Are you comfortable with that?

Not enough space on the same level as the keyboard, that is the only reason. It's not an issue though, I rarely touch it

Jeez, nice setup. What's the use for that microphone? Also, what are you using as interface for it?

Just gaming p2t & streaming, but I was looking to improve the setup to start doing some recording / commentary. Just been using a rubbish basic phantom supply for this mic but pretty sure it is why I keep getting static. I've got a Behringer U-PHORIA UM2 on order now.

Nothing as sophisticated as you lot. I stopped using FreeBSD a long time ago (version 8.3) and have rocked Debian ever since. I don't spend any time customising the OS as much as I did when I was a teenager. Daily driver T430 docked.

cozy new setup

Got a new desk, replaced the microphone with a AT2035 using a scarlett solo audio interface, and a new chair. I got rid of one monitor because I found that I didn't really need it too much due to my workflow changing significantly over the past few months.

That's a pretty looking update! I'm without a room at the moment, let alone a battlestation but I'll try to remember to update when I'm actually settled in properly
