    It's a given that most of us have probably built are own computers and work on others so I'm just wondering what your workshop is like?
    Mine is my bedroom, which is also my office/den/storage room etc...
    I tried to get my dad to part with some space in the garage but that failed :(
    I've got a cabinet in the corner that contains my various drives, old motherboards, cables, memory etc...and a box that has a LOT of PCI, ISA, and AGP cards in it (over 60) that I got off ebay from a few lot auctions and various ones that I've accumulated.
    It seems I'm always running out of screws though (who isn't...) so I bought a bunch off ebay (I've got over 300 screws coming, that should hold me for a while :mrgreen:) and an organizer for them all.
    At the moment I have an old Gateway GP6-450 under my desk acting as my test PC for all my various cards (since it has PCI, AGP, and ISA slots) as well as a way for me to try out beta software (XP SP3 & IE8 at the moment) withot worrying about damaging my main computer. My Desktop sits on my printer stand with my laser printer and my scanner is on a table next to that while my laptop is behind me on it's docking station, which sits on a two drawer chest that holds my Software CDs, PCMCIA cards, & floppy disks (3.5" and 5.25", found a bunch at work one day...).
    In the center of the room sits an old HP that (at the moment) doesn't work and around it are various parts, from and for that computer.

    That's mine, what's yours like?
    I attached a photograph, please feel free to do the same ;)
    You'll note that I also collect and restore antique fans

    Either side of PC desk is a file cabinet.

    PS do not look in the draws.

    You can see things like laptop etc but some items are out of view.Like my body glove with my disks in,I have files etc hidden in another cupboard and other hardware else were.

    This area is in the corner of my living room.

    Look to your right you will see the Atari 2600.http://i112.photobucket.com/albums/n198/jelly-bean_a1/DSC00047.jpg

    Certainly...just glad I don't have a wife like Hengis, I'd hate to clean up this!

    And yes, they are mini blinds, I found two of them in the storage room of my (actually mine, not this one) house while we cleaned it out, they were fine so I brought them home and use them to hide clutter from company
