View Full Version : The Official MURC Messiest Desk Contest for 1999

Ok Gang, it's time for a real showdown to see who among us has the messiest computer desk.
I unofficially hold the current title according to Hunsow http://forums.murc.ws/ubb/wink.gif

You must post a picture to enter. If you need help or webspace you can email me your pictures and I can post them for you or give you the url so you can write your own comments.

Hey Ant, if you could help moderate and close this thread to entries, let's say at 00:00 GMT, October 20,1999 that would be great... we could then start a new Thread for voting.

Now, the only rule is that you do not deliberately trash your desk out. This must be a representation of the average working conditions of your Computer Desk. I could dump my trash can on my desk before taking the pictures but that isn't what this contest is about. So all potential contestants are under "MURCer's Honor" to give an honest representation of their Desks.

the way you're bathed in light
reminds me of that night
god laid me down into your rose garden of trust
and I was swept away
with nothin' left to say
some helpless fool
yeah I was lost in a swoon of peace
you're all I need to find
so when the time is right
come to me sweetly, come to me
come to me

hmmm... doesn't quite look like a tailormade to me. What kind of papers are those anyway?

Now is this a messiest desk contest (Jordan) or a neatest most organisest desk (ALBPM)contest??

I hope I can find some storage medium for my trusty old POLAROID 600 LAND CAMERA (actually a model 640... the MAX version I suppose). CCD's suck... I'll stick with tried and true, fixed focus optics and precisely controlled in camera developement process for contest quality image. Scanned at 300dpi, of course. A Farmer's digital camera.

Alright.. some clarification to these rules.. do the environs of the desk count? My desk reached the critical mass for crap long ago. I would have to include pics of the dining table (avg 2ft depth) buffet (avg 1ft depth) and floor (avg 1.5ft depth). My desk has to have room for me to function here, and I recently "organized" it to accomodate my new computer, but my printer is already buried. I suppose I should take a pic of the back of the desk, but I really don't know if I want to look back there. Sigh.. if only I had room for a scanner, but unfortunately, no desk space!

Alright, to give some idea, Ant has a similar organizational scheme to mine (haphazardly placed software and hardware boxes.. my MAX box is now sitting in approximately the same position as his, atop my printer.. CDs and floppies stacked and scattered, boxes, pens, junk mail, receipts, old lottery tickets, bank statements, odd pieces of paper, stacks of magazines, various unused hardware [2 mice, sparq drive, a floppy drive, many 5 1/4" slide trays, fans, cables of all sorts], socks, books, and other assorted junk are scattered everywhere.) My desk has only the one 19" monitor resting atop a Sept. 1995 issue of Computer Shopper, but is also occupied by 2 cpus (the old one sans cover, with a hard drive resting on top, fans nakedly blowing on it http://forums.murc.ws/ubb/wink.gif, a Nakamichi R1 audio receiver, Belkin Omniview KVM switch, Saitek Cyborg joystick (hmm maybe I should get another naked fan to continually blow on my joystick too http://forums.murc.ws/ubb/smile.gif) Panamax surge protector, HP 895cse printer (that side of my desk is continually buried by about a foot of crap), keyboard, mouse, mousepads, wrist rest, and speakers..

So far I think Ant's desk is the messiest. Just look at all that junk piled up. I guess he first collects junk on his desk, then when it is a big pile moves it aside, and when those piles get too big it just falls to the floor.

In order to get the full effect, you really do need to look through a large number of digital camera shots including my room (sadly, i seem to have lost one of the nice wideangle shots that shows all 3 of my computers, and dont have my digital camera here), but you can see me and a friend of mine building 6 computers from scratch in one day =) http://www.ecotech.com/pics/

but, the best example is probably:
http://www.ecotech.com/pics/PROJE026.jpg
Just imagine that to the immediate right of the large monitor, there's a 24" tower, and a scanner with junk piled all over it, and to the far left there is another monitor up high and another server on the floor.

Fireplace with things like circuit board etching acid on the mantle next to deodorant. Tool chest next to one wall, misc shoes and items of clothing. Did I forget the set of weights and the bed in the middle of the room with wires coming from it for an electric blanket? Hmm, I think a pic would be too embarassing. http://forums.murc.ws/ubb/smile.gif
