Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

CASTING CALL: Clean Cut Pasty Desk Jockeys

I am putting together a clean cut pasty desk jockey calendar for the new year. Be prepared to show your pocket protectors, ergo keyboards and low-UV monitors.

I figured this would apply to more of us.

Submit photos here.

Yoshi, I am not worthy. If only I had such a stash of monitors.

I really appreciate slashdot and the TI calculator.

I have been going through withdrawal, but I am down to one 17" LCD monitor. I do have my sound feed into a 40 watt Sony amp with KLH Bookshelf 3 way speakers though.

At first I thought you were talking about Trackball, the amazing catch game by Wham-O.
But, no.

It's a trackball, alright.

I'll see if I can get some photos of me in retouching hell (cinema displays, photoshop, tablet, keyboard ... never enough ram, etc.). I don't think my nipples have seen the light of day in about 4 years, so you may have to turn the brightness on your monitors down before you look at the pics.

I'm a digital retoucher. Any light other than colour corrected monitors and daylight balanced viewing stations is the devil. So ya, I work in a bunker basically.

That light board is running a proprietary OS on top of a VXWorks backbone.

The laptop (and the monitor on the left, which is just displaying the same thing as my laptop) I believe was running Mozilla Sunbird (calendar program), the middle monitor was on slashdot, and the one on the far right was on ArgoUML.

Of course I wasn't actually doing any work, I was totally posing. I have a ton of monitors since my school has been trying to switch everything to LCDs.
