The second bedroom in our apartment is a disaster 24/7. Judge me if you must. Once we move into a house I'm going to spend a week and make it beautiful again.... someday.
I really like your portal poster.

Thanks man, made it myself. Zazzle is a great place to get stuff like that printed. It was originally mounted to a troffer so it actually lit up like the signs do in the game. I could probably find the original .PSD if anyone wants it.

It was, I replaced it with a modern one since that particular model was recalled for bursting into flames like a Samsung. 'tsall good.

These look like chairs I'd expect to find in a hotel room
the chair on the left was my old roommates but he left it here when he moved out.
The chair on the right I've had since 1995 when we got our first computer and its still the best chair i've sat in yet.

So I looked at this and thought "Y'know this is a bit messy"
Fixed it right up
Spent 3 hours re-cabling the underside of my desk and feels good to stretch my legs out. My new Schiit (Jotunheim) sounds fantastic to boot.
Before and After
Post pics of cabling specs to help with the uneducated cablers.

Oooh thanks, those look pretty damn good to use.
Grab a roll of double sided velcro and just use that, so much easier and reusable.

Seconding this, velcro ties at Harbor Freight. Not cheap for what they are but surprisingly durable.
I couldn't find any picture of these things online so I had to take my own.
My 2nd hand office desk came with these clamps that you just screw in and are easy to use. To mount just slide the cables under the teeth from the open end, and pull down the handle a bit to remove em. (it's made of flexible plastic)
I wonder if you can buy them anywhere separately though because I couldn't even find a picture.
I personally use these things
Can't remember what they're called but they can be bought at IKEA. They're not very long so I had to buy three of them myself, two for my longest desk and one for my shorter desk. It doesn't look very tidy but at least it's not visible unless you go under the desk.
How my desk normally looks while i'm at work. Rocking a Macbook Pro 2015 model. Need to get some wireless headphones for the Mac so it's not as much of a pain to switch over to the headset for the phone when I get a call at night.
Today my father and I have begun work on a new desk. I cleared out all the shit from the old one. I'm actually trying to sell the old one because it's too nice to throw away.
Anyway, here's what the current state of the office is.

Also, my father and I have finished bonding the desktop for my new one. I've listed my current desk on Craigslist but no one wants it.
Running on my burner computer after my main rig died. My desk looks so clean now.
Really like my comfy little room but feel like putting up one or two more posters, agree/disagree?
The laptop is on a sort of file cabinet on wheels. It's not always there.
The desk is 2 meters (6.56 feet) long and the monitors are 27" each. Just for a sense of scale.
