    Anybody want to try and identify each board? :D I see at least one MSI and a few ASUS, probably a few Tyans also.

    Hang on, this is a computer lab full of self-confessed geeks - surely you mean "that nice new bry nylon cardigan (with pocket protector) / t-shirt with Star Wars / Penny Arcade / Gentoo motif"? :D

    Hmm, I've been looking for a room divider for at home. I wonder what the wife will think of this idea? I think I can guess.

    If I was a bachelor, I'd already be on ebay buying up mobo's in bulk. The thought of catching my knuckles on it when I walked past does make me cringe though.

    You hand them a dictionary whilst pointing to the entry for "motherboard".

    Looks geeky but cool, though I'd rather use them to make a large panel high up on the wall - more as 'art' than as an actual wall - to reduce the knuckle-scraping factor. Or use bare PCBs.

    (The rest of that room is butt ugly though. They could put a Monet on the wall and it would still look gross.)
