    The couch has already been ordered from a Macy's furniture near my house and should be delivered next week. I tried to find a picture online, but no luck, so you will have to check back for a picture. Its a tanish color, suade, and has winged back and sides.

    I do a lot of computer work for people in my area and get paid or get free hardware, so a lot is from that. I also work at the Science Center (see back a page or 2 for some pics) and am a dancer (no I am not gay so no one start that BS). I have done a number of guest dancing jobs that pay from 400-800 bucks for a little less that a week of work.

    Why don't you use Desktop Rover??

    I have one mouse+keyboard (Logitech Cordless Desktop MX), and I can control my laptop AND my normal computer with it. It handles just like a dual screen setup, so when I move the mouse far enough to the right, it hides on my monitor, and it pops up on my laptop! I have full keyboard functionality on both my normal computer AND my laptop :)

    With this piece of uber software, you can also send over you clipboard content and CTRL+C CTRL+V files over 2 computers :)

    That looks to me like a desk from Ikea's Jerker series.

    Wowee, I envy you! And you got that 19" monitor super cheap, it would cost a bomb in the UK.

    So I guess you're gonna be spending a lot more time in your room?! What about the heat from all the computers and monitors though? My room right now is 29C with a TFT, laptop and server!

    See, I was going to do that, but I hate KVMs. It is easier for me to have multiple keyboards, especially with how often I switch around.


    Oh, AND REALLY AWESOME NEWS!

    I am getting a set of Logitech Z-5500 from logitech for free cuz one of the channels on my Z-680s pooped out on my the other day and they don't make those any more. I have to give mad props to Logitech for their friendly customer service too! 5-10 days for them to come.

    Not pop, pooped out, and no, actually I wasn't. I hadn't used the surround speakers for a while, but then when I wired my room for them and tested them to make sure they worked, it wasn't working.

    damn man, sweet setup!

    i like your monitor setup, i was debating getting 2x 19" but that would be about £400, so instead ive been donated my dads 15" laptop (which goes to like 1600x1200!) and am getting an acer 8ms 19" :D yeah!!!

    i like the fact your room is uber sweet, and it all looks very well thought out!

    if i could be bothered, i would probably do something like that in my room!

    i personally use maxivista v2 to use my laptop as a 2nd screen, it works really well and doesnt slow down the pc's that much!

    **dreams of 3x 19"'s** yeah that would roxor!

    i cant live without dual screen anymore, i tried, but it just doenst work, i love having either azureus or winamp on the 2nd screen and my browser and msn etc on my main screen, its unbeatable :D

    Lol man, I just went to reread your first post and your slouching in that first picture so it looks like you have arms that are 10 feet long. Rofl, just thought I should mention that, and that I am embarking on a project nearly the same as yours, have already built myself a super-size desk and will be building a second part for it in the next 2 weekends.

    Update today! So I have been busy with some finishing touches. Yes that meant another trip to ikea!! (and some other stores) :D :naughty:

    So check it out!

    [​IMG]
    These are some costers from Crate and Barrel (love the store). And I used the pictyre that I took for my background changed the hue to match the color.

    [​IMG]
    This is a poster I got and I made the set of 5 pictures above the poster. The blue light is just a touch I added to finish the corner.

    [​IMG]
    Close up of the set (sorry kinda blurry).

    [​IMG]
    I wired the surround speaker cables around my room through my closets so that you can't see the wires, but I didn't have to do too extensive work (so that my mom wouldn't be upset. She doesn't like me drilling holes and running cables too much. I also added a counduit box and some banna jacks so that the speakers can be unpluged if I need to for some reason.

    [​IMG]
    I also added this light behind the monitors for an accent.

    [​IMG]
    I also got this chair at Target to use when needed (it was cool).

    Hope you liked the schtuff.

    Peace,
    Nick

    I like this very much, your room has come a very long way since the start of the project. I finally cleaned out my room and I've since been very consious about keeping it clean since it's really so much more livable and I spend so much time in it :) I'd benefit a LOT from taking everything out and then putting stuff back as needed considering wiring, but I really don't have the space for that so oh well.

    That artwork on the wall is a nice touch. So different from the Matrix posters and some uber-res shot of their case mod on the walls of many-a-geek. I personally tacked up a beach towel I got as a free gift from Newegg :p Regardless of how much I love newegg (too much), I definately prefer your solution.
