View Full Version : Post your Desk Area - With a Twist!

Here, you can post a photo of the layout of your desk, computer or study area. Try to keep them in spoilers or if it's really big (ie. >2 MB), then just post a link.

Here's the twist: you can post a scavenger hunt for items on your desk, so we can find them.

I'll start off.

http://i232.photobucket.com/albums/ee162/Archerspictures/Deskshot_july09.jpg

Can you find? (in order of difficulty):


A Gameboy Colour
A Ferrari
A laptop HDD (not in the laptop)
A Guns 'N Roses emblem (almost impossible. The round one with the gold border if it helps)

EDIT: I'm going to clean the desk out, now. I don't even use that screen...

Gameboy semi shown, the ferrari is in the top left corner the hdd for the laptop by the ds, and the emblem is in between the books on the left next to the door with the key.

I thought that the laptop HDD (not in the computer) was in that static resistant bag to the left of his power button on the HP DV1000-ish computer.

(I'll post up mine later when I get a chance)

You're right about the location and the computer model. *gives gluten-free cookie* :D

Guys, you should probably hide the comments about locations, but meh.

That's really tidy, Ctep; anyone else willing to give it a go?

I found the Game Boy Colour (you need to be very stupid to not notice it.)
i found the Ferrari. Its next to the Bear plushes. :3
I didnt look at other peoples posts.

Try to find... hm.

Throat lozenges
7-in-1 Pocket Knife/Plier thing
A Glue Stick
and for the impossible: A pile of breadcrumbs (it's visible, I assure you)

I couldn't let the thread die ;C

Archer
July 13th, 2009, 05:34 PM
I found everything except the pile of breadcrumbs. Is that them...In front of the right speaker?

Gerri Shin
July 13th, 2009, 07:20 PM
Okay here's my answers for finding things in Fantomix's shot
Throat lozenges - under the headphones
7-in-1 Pocket Knife/Plier thing - On top of notebook
A Glue Stick - in front of right speaker
and for the impossible: A pile of breadcrumbs (it's visible, I assure you) - also infront of right speaker, as well as some under the USBs on the right side of the HP dv series computer?

Ok now for my desk Here's the pics:

Gerri's Find-A-Thing:



iPod Touch - In front of LCD Screen
Orange Juice - In a glass on the wooden cabinet
Graphics Tablet - ???
Third external hard drive - Next to Orange Juice?
A Windows Anytime Upgrade Vista dvd case - Clear case on top shelf of cabinet
My eSata cable - ???
and one for a challenge, My Nalgene water Bottle - First image, bottom-right corner.


There were a few I couldn't get.

Gerri Shin
July 13th, 2009, 08:08 PM
Go ahead and try again Archer, I changed up the list of things since it is rather hard to see my tablet. (it's on the bottom shelf in the first picture, the Esata cable was below it)
also here's your list
iPod Touch - In front of LCD Screen
Orange Juice - In a glass on the wooden cabinet
Graphics Tablet - ???
Third external hard drive - Next to Orange Juice? nope.
A Windows Anytime Upgrade Vista dvd case - Clear case on top shelf of cabinet Not quite
My eSata cable - ???
and one for a challenge, My Nalgene water Bottle - First image, bottom-right corner.

Archer
July 13th, 2009, 09:12 PM
Oh, is that the HDD on the shelf of the second image? Back-right of the shelf, or is that one you mentioned? Also, I thought that was the Vista case with the curvy corner? What did you mean by "not quite"?



Scrubs seasons DvDs - Behind the Orange Juice. Go Scrubs!
Video cable adaptor - Is that it, under the screen? The white thing?

Fantomix
July 14th, 2009, 04:35 PM
Hey guys; you managed to spot the breadcrumbs, I see ;P But the thing in front of the right speaker is actually throat spray, heh. So where is the glue stick?

Gerri Shin
July 14th, 2009, 05:53 PM
My next guess for the glue stick is in the pencil bag.
Archer: what I meant by not quite, is that you are correct that the case with the curved corner is indeed a microsoft product case, however it was originally a Live OneCare box recycled as a storage for beta DvDs. Keep looking. As for your guess with the video adapter, look a little lower, the white thing under the screen is actually my power block.

Archer
July 14th, 2009, 10:48 PM
I actually meant the white thing behind the iPod Touch. What is that?
I guess the adaptor is the white USB thing next to your Graphics Tablet?
And would that be the Vista case in the blue-green case, next to the dummies books?

I'm bad at this.

Oh, Fantomix, are you refering to what looks like a Bostik Blustick?

Gerri Shin
July 15th, 2009, 06:53 AM
Ok you got all of them.
That white blcok behind my iPod is actually a second wall plug I can use on my power brick that allows me to use 2 prong outlets. It comes in really handy when traveling because it means I don't have to lug around that long 3 prong extension that the power brick is currently plugged into. (also that 'dummies book' as actually my textbook for Mac OS X Support Essentials which allows me to gain certification as an Apple Authorized support member. I'll be getting the hardware support book after they revise it for the unibody notebooks.)

lol, Transparency, I can't see a thing. Did you take that with your phone? You should try to redo it with adjusted focus. Guys, remember to put images in spoilers if you can. It keeps the page cleaner. :D

This is great. I sure trains you to looks outside the square a little.

The DS is on the bottum stand of the monitor and the pen is to (my right) the right of the monitor, on a card, possibly the E-Reader Card. The E-Reader is farther to the right? That's all I could find, horrid quality.

@ Ziraider: Wow that is a dark image, use flash next time.
1.PSP - on the right side on top of the binder filled with #2.
2.My Pokemon card Deck - Under the PSP on the right side of the desk.
3. Co2 tank - On the left side behind that congregation of soda cans.
4.Keyboard (not on laptop) - Hard to see, but probably on a tray below the desk.
5. Hollister bag - Somewhere behind the tower.
6. a Chair - In the bottom left corner of the picture very obscured by the lack of flash.

@ Transparency: Steady camera, needs steady camera!
A DS - Under the Screen
E-Reader - appears to be located above the right corner of the DS under the screen.
E-Reader Card - appear in between the DS and the iPod Dock remote.
Scratchie - not exactly sure what the american translation of that is, I'd guess a lottery ticket which appears to be under the iPod Earphones under the left corner of the screen.
iPod earphones - Under the left corner of the screen
iPod Dock Remote - Under the right corner of the screen
An iTunes Gift Card - under the scratchie?
An Pen - Behind the DS?
An Twisties Packet - Off to the left, it's the green bag right?
An Mobile Phone (Cell Phone to americans) - the shiny glint off under the left of the screen?

Try and find yogurt

Gerri Shin
July 19th, 2009, 06:28 PM
Whoops, sorry about that Kinarii here we go!

› A giant paper clip - On the right top shelf above the blue car
› Giratina - Up on top somewhat behind the White Bus
› 3 pairs of scissors - There are two pairs in the cup behind Giratina, the third is in an organizer on the same shelf as the Paper Clip
› A shoe - It's in the background of the second picture right in between the rocking chair and the corner.
› A tablet pen - Imma guess it's hiding in front of the blue notebook and you can see it in between the Deer Park water bottle and the can of Peanuts in the second picture.
› A letter opener - In the first picture the shelf under the paper clip next to the 3 Hole Punch
› An iPod nano - In the Dock in the second Picture

GO!


Ralph! I found the yogurt! You have at least a raspberry flavour and a pineapple flavour cup there. I dunno if it's in that stack but you should try Yoplait's Strawberry Cheesecake flavour.

More specifically, it would be a Standard 9.04 LiveCD? I've always wondered what people did with their stickers. I still don't want to use them =/ I might put it on the back of my laptop eventually.

I'd also like to point out: Guys, if you need a good example of photo quality, etc for this thread, check out Ctep's.

Yes it would be, I just got it in the mail today. Didn't need it but it's nice to have. Also, now I have three random stickers for nothing. >:

Oh, and thank you. ^-^ Ironic, my camera sucks. Everyone get out their pen and paper, use flash. ^-^'
