Ok I might as well share my "setup" if you want to call it that.
The HTPC form factor PC on the left is a my current project (project sharepoint 2010) which is something I'm working on for work. It used to be my HTPC until the drive crashed and I replaced it with another HTPC. I'll be selling it on ebay later next month if anyone is interested. In the middle is my laptop which is responding to this post (I literally took these pictures when I read this post). Notice the Yellow network cable hanging across the room... gotta run proper network cabling still! To the right is the wife who is working on her dell. She is complaining that her PC is running slow (that is because I took memory out of it for project sharepoint ) but she is cool with that. I'm thinking of building a gnarly PC with dual monitors in place of the dell as our main workstation. The BYOB podcast is a big inspiration.
Next we have the mona server which I scavenged a drive from to work on Project SharePoint, still waiting for Vail for that baby! Below Mona is our printer, router, modem, HD HomeRun, Production WHS V1 which runs like a champ and next to the server is an AT&T MicroCell (a mini cell phone tower that is plugged into our router). We live in a canyon which is a cell phone dead zone so we need the micro cell to get calls (no land lines here). Speaking of which, PCDoc, I see a land line on your desk... time to cut the cord buddy
This is a picture of some of the spare parts, a duplex scanner and believe it or not my "trash can pc" on the bottom. I literally pulled it out of a dumpster and it works great. I re-imaged it with windows XP and I am thinking of using it to control a CNC machine that I want to build in the near future.
Any suggestions on running network cables in the house... I'm still using wireless.
