    Here's mine. And no, I didn't clean it off to take the picture, that's basically what it looks like all the time unless I'm working, but I always put everything away when I'm done because I absolutely can't stand clutter.

    I don't have a desk - part of why the iPad comes in handy for me. :)

    Damn such tidy self controlled people.

    Mines like C4's after the tornado.
    I especially hate it when my family tidies my desk up as I can never find anything. I always remember when I last used an item and can always find it unless it's moved........arrrgh.

    Here's my 'command center'.

    I'm a ham radio operator, so I have a bit more equipment than the normal person.. The iPad isn't at my desk because I run two computers. (One Linux the other one Windows).. I use the iPad everywhere else... It sits in my living room plugged in to the charger. I take it along with me every time I go out.

    Amateur radio is sometimes referred to as ham radio. This is how you can talk to people around the world without using the Internet!

    Amateur radio, often called ham radio, is both a hobby and a service in which participants, called "hams," use various types of radio communications equipment to communicate with other radio amateurs for public services, recreation and self-training.

    Here is my work desk, well, half of it. Crappy pic, but shows enough. I dont have a desk at home, just a laptop stand near the couch I use. Too comfy not to.

    Actually, it is pretty much hit or miss. How far you can talk depends on many factors such as the the particular frequency you are using, the time of day, the time of year and even where we are in the 11 year sun spot cycle. Amateur radio operators love sunspots... the more the better! Unfortunately, the bottom of the last sunspot cycle (sometimes called the solar cycle) was in December, 2008 so we are just barely 2 years past the worst possible conditions for long range communications. The means it will probably be 3-4 more years before the next peak.

    Confused yet?
