Some of us don't give a poo poo
I didn't either and now that I have literally over 50 cables behind my desk it actually became physically difficult to add or remove something.

I guess for small computer setups it really doesn't matter though.

I would think that with all the cables tied/bundled together it would be even more troublesome..
This was the case with zip ties and twist ties, which is why I don't use either anymore. I got 165 feet of double-sided velcro for about $35 online, and it's been lovely.

I had 320 Double Gulp cups in my room once because I thought it was funny to accumulate that many, but they were cleaned out and neatly stacked.

Why do so many people take pictures of their stack of tissues? I hope it's because they have a cold.
I thought people used dirty socks for that, I've never heard of a real person using tissues

My desk, taken earlier in the month. Living like poo poo with cables everywhere, and a Nortel phone; none of your fancy-pants VOIP for me. Since this picture was taken, I've added a second display to my iMac; I'll edit this post once I get a change to take a photo of it.
Ho-ly poo poo at that old Electronics Boutique joystick. I used to have the same one back in 1990 or whenever the hell that was.

I suppose this is a good a place as any to ask this:

I'm moving at the end of the month and I'm wondering where I should put my desk for a gaming desktop. Here's the floorplan of my new place:



The black arrow is pointing to a built-in desk. The red arrow is where I originally wanted to put my desk (Ikea Galant), and the blue arrow is another option. Am I being neurotic for thinking this way:

- I don't want to put my computer on the built-in desk. I'd rather use that for bills and for studying when I start grad school in the fall.
- I worry that by putting it in the living room (red arrow), it'll take up too much space in the room and make some of the breakfast bar unusable.
- But I don't really want to put it in the bedroom (blue arrow) since that seems too teenager-living-at-home to me.

I've been in a few furniture stores lately, and I've happened to wander into the office sections where they keep the really nice wooden office desks, and I have to say I didn't like any of them. I mean most of them looked really nice and seemed to be well made from a quality perspective, but apparently every "nice" desk these days no matter where you go has a great big drawer right in under the center of the main surface area, meant to go above your legs, leaving (depending on your chair height) either no room for your legs at all or room for your legs but a desk surface way too tall for typing comfortably on. Usually these drawers are set to have the front fold down so they double as keyboard trays, but the problem is that every one of them are too narrow to fit a keyboard and mouse. I guess they expect you to put your mouse on the desk surface and use it by extending your arm way out in front of you and at a much higher level than where your keyboard is set.

It really does seem like a Galant-style desk is pretty much the best desk for computer productivity.
If you look around your area, you'll probably find a number of office furniture stores that deal in built-to-specification MDF hardware. We went with one for the computer desk I have at home and are pretty much completely happy with it. It's built like a rock compared to typical Sauder or Bush poo poo, but we didn't spend $1500 on it either and we got exactly what we wanted.
