FPN appearing slow

Dearest Member or Visitor of the little Fountain Pen Nut house on the digital prairie,

Due to a continuing DDoS attack, FPN could be moving only slowly. Hosting Support is dealing with this. The earlier reported hardware issue has been fixed. Apologies for the inconvenience.

betty's thread re: pictures of ink inspired me to take some snaps of my desk. sorry, no shots of my ink, as they're strewn all about the house. thought it'd be an interesting look into the lives of fpn'ers... :)

Topics like this are always fun. But you asked for it. I just grabbed the camera, stepped back and took the picture, mess and clutter and everything. The fountain pens are even in there somewhere.

We had this type of thread on another forum on which I participate. Each new post contained a picture of that persons desk and computer, with the previous post of the thread showing on their monitor. That way you end up with a desktop within a desktop within a desktop etc etc. Good fun - perhaps we should try it here?

And no, you're not seeing my desk! Not until I've tidied it anyway B)!

Okay. Just grabbed the camera and took the picture. Didn't clean up or anything. Very cramped, very humble, but note the paper napkins with PR American Blue blots and the stains on the rather nice inclined aluminum writing platform. I think I'm kinda odd for not liking things on my wall -- no pictures etc. It gets in the way of my thinking...

Denis,

I don't think your test can be called messy by any means. In fact, it looks so executive like :)

I love these kind of posts :) I need to take a picture of mines too.

I remember a similar thread sometime ago, but I didn't manage to get around to take the photos then, so here are some pics of my study.

Standing in the doorway of our second bathroom, you can see my table.

Posted Image

Turning to the right a bit, you can see my standing shelves and an antique cupboard. Overhead, is an L-shaped row of shelves, mostly to store comics.

Posted Image

To the right of that antique cupboard is my bureau.

Yeah, the Soundsticks are pretty cool -- note the subwoofer hiding under the desk. They sound great, but probably no better than a regular analog system. I guess I was momentarily blinded by technolust. When I play DVDs I just roll the whole system closer to the sofa so I can watch with my girlfriend. I call it the DougVision system. But with only a 17" screen, an audience of two is pretty much the maximum. Any more and people's heads will start knocking together.

P.S. Ink does not permanently stain aluminum, thank God!

All right you asked for it. This is my desk at home. Step back and snap the pic. I probably spend more time on FPN at work as I just sign on in the morning and check in a couple times an hour or so, but this one is at home and that is where my camera was.

great snaps, everyone! i think these pics tell a lot about the desk owners... :o

in terms of lack of messiness, i cheated - the desk i showed is not really my working desk as it's in my bedroom loft, and a pain to get to. The computer desk located at 3:00 (not included in the photo) is real messy.

alright, howsabout some REAL messy desk shots? bring em on! we can take it...:D
