The Command Center

It came to my attention in Atlanta that some people might be curious about what it looks like to work on RedState. There’s no magical server room, or at least, none that’s anywhere near me. That’s with some third party company in Texas, while Eagle’s people are in DC and I’m in California.

But that does leave the matter of my workstation. I don’t know if penguin2 is the only one who’s curious or not, but here it is. Click for full size picture, and there’s a legend below the fold.

  1. Sennheiser EH 150 headphones. Padded and useful for watching television/listening to music from computer/playing games for extended periods over the sound of the air conditioner to my left.
  2. Wii Sports Resort for the Wii and Makai Kingdom for the Playstation 2. The former’s in my Wii and the latter’s in my Playstation 3
  3. Wii Remote with Classic Controller and Motion Plus
  4. Universal remote (controling 4 devices), plus AC remote
  5. External hard drive (from my old G5, now used for Time Machine) with card readers

  17. Americans for Prosperity notebook
  18. Receipt for Lucky Star Volume 6 from Amazon
  19. IRS paperwork nonsense

  22. Kinesis keypad. Mac model.

Sorry if this punctures any bubbles. It’s not entirely enough like a Bond villain’s lab. I do plan to buy a new desk (well, an actual desk and not a table) next month or so, though. Not sure how much that’ll help though. I’ll have to rely on the blamstick to get by now that the aura’s gone.
