here's an older picture of mine:
hasn't changed too much since then, there's another desktop raid been added just to the left of the tower (taurus). not sure how much storage i have to list it, be around 5 or 6 terabytes all up. gaming setup to the right of the picture (500gb ps3 slim) but on the far left just out of the picture is work benches where i frame photos.
the mac is a 2.3ghz dual core g5, 5.5 or 6 gig of ram, 2x 150gb hdds, ati radeon x1900 xt feeding 2x 22" lcds, dual sata pci-e raid card. few other upgrades & add-ons like 2x dual layer firewire dvd burners & stuff.
it's an older machine but still quicker than my 2.53ghz 13" macbook pro which is also in the picture.

Mine is only organised (as both you & Stubzee pointed out), because it's the yachtie coming out in me. You wouldn't believe it but i was down on the boat having a bit of a tidy up when the email came in that there had been a reply to this thread, i had a quick read & chuckle to myself as I was stowing parachute & smoke flares away (checking their use by dates, as you do).

i could see the admiralty chart in the picture you posted, in the back left of my office is all my fishing gear & boating stuff, i only have a quintrex dinghy though lol.
i noticed the pictures of our desks have something in common beyond the same brand of computer too, both images have a macworld mag just to the right of the mouse.

You're very observant, nothing wrong with the "Quinnie" tough as nails, i also use this chart (the one you can see on the wall) to plot cyclones on, just like the last one Ului, plotted that until all hell was
breaking loose around us, we were very close to the centre see pic below from the BOM, this was the last one from them (BOM) at around 1230 hrs so it was nearly onto of us then as the red dot (in the centre)
passed over us and the power in the lappie went dead, an ominous sign......
there i go again getting off track but since i am the "thread boss" i will allow it! Ha!

On the desk:
13-inch MacBook Pro on a Griffin Elevator stand
Cisco SPA540G IP Phone (via MyNetFone)
Under the desk:
Mac mini server
The desk is from an open-plan office. I procured it during an office refit. It gives me about 3.5 metres of bench space. Out of picture, I have another, shorter bench (about 1.8 meters). I need all that bench space for testing review gear for AMW and others.
The story of how I built my office is here.

at least you have something to work or save towards,i never just go out and buy things,i laybuy or save for ages beforehand,get a jar and cram your change into it,stuff like that.you be surprised what you can achieve with a bit of positive manifestation btw,[yeh,sounds wacky but it works for me]
i never care or worry about money,i refuse to let it have that power over me,yet it just seems to come when i want or need it,then again,i never mind giving/sharing either,so maybe theres a cycle going on,anyway,hope this xmas brings you some nice surprises mate,

Note that a NAS/RAID does not usually equate to a backup. The only good backup is an off-site backup.

Don't feel put out Brian, take it as it comes, save a little, buy Apple, save a little, buy Apple, knock it off in little bites, oh for a big fat salary increase.....
ps nice setup, functional, that's all you need....
ps this reminded me of when my wife & I were married, we had not too much, a table similar to yours, no seats, so i cut the legs off so that we could sit on the carpet an have a meal off it.....those were the days....
