I'm just curious what everyones work space looks like - Call my nosy if you like, but I find it interesting looking at the area that other people work in, so go ahead, post up some pictures. Here's mine to start things off!

php & mysql for dummies...busted! okay but you have baily's so i forgive you.
Did I help you? Feeling generous? Buy me lunch! 
Please, take the time and do some research and find out how much it would have cost you to get your help from a decent paid-for source. A "roll-of-the-dice" freelancer will charge you $5-$15/hr. A decent entry level freelancer will charge you around $15-30/hr. A professional will charge you anywhere from $50-$100/hr. An agency will charge anywhere from $100-$250/hr. Think about all this when soliciting for help here. Think about how much money you are making from the work you are asking for help on. No, we do not expect you to pay for the help given here, but donating a few bucks is a fraction of the cost of what you would have paid, shows your appreciation, helps motivate people to keep offering help without the pricetag, and helps make this a higher quality free-help community :)

yes, good post. i'll have to get some pics and post, too. my office setup is almost identical to your home setup... i'm a little jealous of the third flat panel myself :P

I'll post my home office later.  I'll have to bring my camera in tomorrow and get the work setup.  My work setup isn't nearly as good as yours.  I'd kill for a second monitor.  :(

Hey I got some pics together, this is my home office...the one at work I didn't pay for, so it's pretty weak, so I just included my home stuff.

This is my main work space. Main computer is an intel duel core, and the monitor is a dell 20.1" widescreen (awesome picture by the way). Next to it is a Win 2000 server, mostly for files.

This is right next to the first picture, this is the linux workstation with the first section of books. And all those bins are filled with parts and misc computer crap
Posted Image

These are the other books, mostly outdated, but sometimes a help. And YES there are dummy books in there, but sometimes they are nice to have...just in case.
Posted Image

This is in the other room, has really nothing to do with programming, but I do like the mini recording setup.

If you are looking for good speakers the Klipcsh 2.1 THX speakers are awesome (shown on the main computer and the laptop 8)), and you can pick them up at best buy for $129! They will be the best speakers you will ever buy. Feel free to ask about anything else that is in the pics.

My work space looks like .... well imagine you have decided to clean out the filing cabinet and had placed/spilled the contents on top of a desk, and then dropped a stack of CDs that slithered all over the piles of paper, and buried in all that is THE BOOK with all the site URLs, server logins, user and client username/password combos, and some extra paper with IMPORTANT information on it there somewher, etc., etc.  and a cup or two and a couple of empties.  Now imagine someone came along and pushed over the piles of paper, cleared a space in the middle and plunked down a laptop.  Get the picture?

Looks like this - and that's after I'd cleared it up ...

Having more than one screen is very useful, I even struggle at home with just the two after working in my office with three - You really do get used to them. I'll have to order a third for home at some point, it's just finding the time to mount it on the wall...

php & mysql for dummies...busted! okay but you have baily's so i forgive you.

Haha! You caught me! Damn... should have taken that off of the shelf before I took the photo...

Yeah, Klipsch do make some nice sounding speakers for the money! Nice book collection too by the way.

What are those blue and pink things?

no, i left them there to ferment a little longer. only there's a breed of plant growing around the top of them now.

of course i drank them. and quite a few since :)

none today though. that's an old picture.
