Old thread is almost kill
>ren and stimpy
Hey guys, I'm going to make my first proper battlestation and I need some tips.
Looking for a decent monitor that can tilt, pivot, and turn into Portrait.
I have thick rug where my battlestation is and obviously it's not good for a computer. What do you use to solve this problem? My final resort is cardboard.
I need to take a new picture, I got some new equipment. Maybe tomorrow...
Yeah ok, I'll see what I can with that. How about a Chair mat? Would that work well? Mine is a bit small might have to get a new one.
I might learn a bit or two from this Anon over here. I can't imagine anyone topping that off.
A lot of un-needed clutter there, might want to clean that that when getting the new picture done.
Get those monitors off those books and buy a stand or mount.
Manage the wires below.
That would probably work as well, I have wood floors so I don't have that issue.
Don't be ridiculous, that would just be silly. I put the sock on it and use it as a dildo.
I'll try to clean up a lot of the junk.
As for the monitor stands, it's on my list. I'm moving in a few weeks so I'm kind of waiting to see what my desk is like before I buy anything.
That's also why the wires are so messy
I'm quite early, huh. I like the keyboard.
I don't mean to talk shit, but all that good gear no good camera?
Looks kind of cramped, is it really or just pano? Comfy otherwise.
Looks good aside from the lack of cable management. I especially like the poster.
Chair looks so comfy, but why nothing on the walls m80?
Pic is old stazione di battaglia, one I'm using is temporary and shitty. Will take pic of new station when ready.
You mean this guy?
Actually, the cat litterbox is in there.. I'm afraid to go in there because of that unfortunately.
No sweat anon, it's a Vortex Poker II. Runs about $100-$110. Good luck with your station.
Let me try to find it, got a huge wallpaper folder.
It helps gives my ass more comfort, unfortunately not enough for a good chair yet.
Both the panels come off super easy, cable management is a breeze. It's also super sturdy and made of ultra nice Aluminum.
The military green looks really nice with black and tan components.
Just a tip, split tubing works really well for loose and small cables, like the front panel controls and fan wires.
This picture is brighter, but the colors are off and it looks bad
Have since replaced stock keycaps on the board with a white/gray set from WASDKeyboards.
God its like I was born in a barn
Anyway, sorry for the poor quality, my apparently HD iphone isnt HD
I do clean my desk, but then I write down more notes, get more drinks, ect.. and this happens.
You are a disgusting pig. Have some decency learn to respect organization. Clean shit up as soon as the mess is made it takes a few seconds instead of having it all pile up. Do you not have a trashcan or a trashbag in there? How do people reach adulthood without knowing how to live?
Woah, calm down mate. As I said, I clean it, this just keeps happening.
It is a bloody mess, but its not like I go outside wearing a shit covered shirt. Nobody see's this, its a place where I can wallow in my own filth without revolting anyone else. If someone comes over I clean it.
Also, your forgetting something mate
You're life: 'Ah, I just made a nice bowel on ramen noodles, now to watch something on my computer and eat these...oh shit I forgot a spoon, now I need to go back and get some'
My life: 'Oh no, I forgot my spoon, but no worries, I have a whole set of cutlery from 3 weeks ago. Just wipe the crust and rust off it, good as new!'
You're a disgraceful human being and should get the fuck >>>/out/ of this board. Fuckin' negative nancy edgy cunt.
I know. He seems genuinely upset about this though, as if it effects him personally. I just posted it to have a laugh with the lads about how tragic my battle station is, but he wasnt having any of it
I wasn't even using it, nor the smaller one, I'm using the laptop only...I should take a new picture, I took off the monitors from my desk, also the printer and the xbox games, it was when I moved back to my room few weeks ago.
The rest is still like I don't give a shit about form.
I thought a racer styler seat would have been cool, but fuck it, I love my skanky chair...it's comfy as hell.
Just a lump of wood I found at my parents place, routed out the inside, routed out the edge trim, varnished it and screwed down the GTX 260, works with any dual slot card.
Works fine but what else would I do with it? its 6 years old.
600mg of diphenhydramine to the face
Front line assembly on blast
It's going to be a scary night boys
I bought some boxes for extra headphones
Still working on turning a few old computer into scrap
Fuck the police
I've been strung out on this shit for like a week now, I'd probably have to take more than that
Pretty sure I've eaten like 400 this week
I know the feeling, just be careful dude. The HPPD from 300-400mg doses nightly for sleep and then the occasional 800-900 mg dose for tripping lingered on me for like a month and a half. I still dont feel right in the head.
That usually wears off like 12 hours later for me
I've been reading, and there are legit cases of people dying from benadryl
I mean, it's usually not from the pills itself, it's usually them being extremely high and just wandering off into traffic
Anyone knows where I can find some good posters ready to print .
I would love to have something like : http://www.allposters.com/-st/College-Posters_c12911_.htm
but it seems i can't fin any good resolution for ( A3 )
That's old soviet Vega 104 Stereo speakers
Vega itself stands on top of the shelf on lthe left, works as amp.
What position do you play, friend?
I played defender for most of my childhood years and in high-school I played attack, I miss it. Mainly X
Can I have that blue setup background? I can't remember if it's 95 or 98.
Not particularly a fan of the keyboard, but it looks nice. Reminds me of my old setup.
Very cluttered and noisy.5/10
Looking very nice. 8/10
Don't care for the unnecessary pony accessories or the case (The case should really be put somewhere else it's ugly and distracts from your setup). What do you use the Intuos5 for?>>43212111
8.5/10- I'm loving that KB/Trackpad placement. Imma have to cop that from you as I'm getting a Poker 2 soon. :p
Wish the image quality was better. 7/10
Is that chair made of suede?
Hello /g/. Poker 2 on the way! I'm so excited!
Welp, at least there will be food at my family reunion
University battlestion from 2007. The furniture was not mine and I had a better chair for the most part. The speakers are still god-like and I want to buy them again. Worst keyboard ever and I threw it away.
Yes, the 8040. Not sure about the color code but black before they had the deeper black. Volume limited by a SM pro audio nanopatch passive volume controller, and I think I had the ESI Juli@ soundcard.
otukare. didn't realize the spakes were woodpaneled i'm most curious about how you access tools to make shit, if living in an apartment. pain fumes can't be good for you tho
how does one dirty up the front edge of a keyboard?
what is stepstool for?
I own all the tools already and build everything in my garage, kind of limited to what a circular saw can do since I didn't have room for a table saw, miter saw, router table, bench planer here in Japan. Check with local vocational schools, a lot of them will rent out shop time to build stuff.
Also, water based paint fumes are totally safe.
>that headphone stand
I have an old 260 lying around, too.
Yes that was me man.
Just a spare seat for plebs when they are at my station. Plus I'm short so I need the stool to reach shit, my ceilings are 9.5ft high. So my shelves are pretty high.
i don't usually post in battlestation threads, because there was nothing interesting about it
i think the addition of a television on my desk changes that, namely because it's connected to my computer as a second monitor
You're a man of fine taste, except for one thing.
actually this tele was made in 1999
i've started watching even hd videos on it, the contrast and viewing angle makes things look so much nicer
i've got an 853x480i mode configured for widescreen media (tv's got a 16:9 geometry mode, so i can use all vertical lines in 16:9)
Sorry for the shit quality
Also, I'm going to paint black the little box under the desk, I know it looks hideous right now
scratch that, just made a 1024x576i 47.95hz mode
amazing what you can push them up to
there's technically no fixed horizontal resolution for crt's, it only affects pixel clock (graphics card limited)
na, 853 is the result i got from an aspect ratio calculator, should probably have rounded it off
well, you're limited to the number of phosphor 'pixels' you have on the screen itself, in terms of visible pixels, what i mean is the tv won't refuse an input based on horizontal resolution
Painting my room so i have a desk on wheels atm. Not pictured: my at 2020 mic.
It's the HD650 (also tried it with the HD600
It powers them as loud as you would need but I have heard a Bravo Audio Ocean on the HD650 and the extra power really opened them up, I was most impressed, dacs the best part of the D1, I'm looking to upgrade tho to a Darkvoice or Bottlehead, it's one of the better dac/amp combos in its price range.
I'd say you be better of with Schiit stack or O2 combo.
Can't see shit
Looks fine. Manage the cables
Mess + can't see shit
Looking good but get yourself some real speakers
>that awful lianli case
Out of curiosity how many of you still live with your parents/relatives?
I mean I have a nice setup and all, but I feel 80% of these are unobtainable unless I don't have to worry about space/storage/bills.
still building the desk. legs are attached, but it's pretty fucking wobbly. any suggestions on how to fix that?
Not him but it's rather good.
The memes and the tacked on ending is kinda retarded but overall it's fairly enjoyable. It really picks up several episodes in and I suggest not watching the last two episodes.
Maybe something like this. The blue would secure the leg and make the table a bit sturdier, but is optional.
well there's not much reason to get a tv that isn't a crt tv, since anything else is just a big computer monitor
the idea here is to get something best suited for low res stuff, and nothing does low res better than crt tvs and arcade monitors
i would if i had more money. sadly i don't.
if the adapters don't work, i will most likely do it if i can make it portable. i need to be able to disassemble said desk to transport it to school
Bracing like that would still allow for a lot of wobble.
For something sturdy, you'll at least need skirting or some kind of diagonal bracing or solid panel to keep it from twisting around.
