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.

Here's a couple....quick and dirty:

A dreamer is one who can only find his way by moonlight, and his punishment is that he sees the dawn before the rest of the world.

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...

You want messy ? :D

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 guess 'messy' is a relative term! :D I thought my desk was pretty under control this week! :rolleyes: :doh:

I got messy right here! I took this today when my Mom asked me, "So what are you doing today?"

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.

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.

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

      Even so, you'd end up with a fragmented list, and it becomes an O(N²) process for each prospective requestor to check what is available: effectively recreate the list of currently active servers (without any reliable up-to-date info upfront about the inks and number of samples on offer in the thread) from the sequential list of posts, which may be spread over two or even more pages, and then query each server independently to check what is currently on offer.   It comes down to not hav

      If one wanted to do this, one could just use the "About Me" field which appears to be unlimited in size.  And if a bunch of people wanted to cooperate, the Member Title field (or signature) could be used to this end - "Ink Giver" (or some such) could be used by those with inks to give...  No software edits required.
    • Arkanabar
      I suppose the update issue could be mitigated.  One would post a link in signature, to the particular part of your profile where you list the inks that you're willing to post samples to others, gratis.  But looking at profiles, I suspect that would require an edit to the board's software, potentially a nontrivial task.
    • A Smug Dill
      I read your idea as getting willing givers to publicly register as members of a set of heterogenous servers, in a system in which a client would explicitly select an available server from a list, to which he/she will then send a request privately and asynchronously. Request handling in the system is unmanaged, and individual requests are handled by the targeted servers completely independently on each other. I think the model is fine, although there are some operational concerns you may want to
    • Daneaxe
      First thought on the method/system of ink sharing: Think the best way, to begin with, is to follow the way of the US thread: offer up a (small) list of inks you are willing to PIF, to whoever expresses interest. Write clearly in the "mission statement" how it works, with a tiny "quid pro quo" that even a struggling student can comply with, i.e. post your opinion and a writing sample, with option of a full review if desired.   So yours truly might say: "I'm offering up samples of D
