show us your iron

Unread post by pidsley » Sun Dec 15, 2013 10:19 pm

To follow up on "what are you running" and all the screenshots, I'd like to see pictures of your actual hardware. You all know I am a collector, so I'd like to see the physical machines behind the screenshots.

Here are some of mine:

Image

Left-to-right:

Dellbert: Celeron; running Gentoo testing, Gentoo stable, and sid/busybox. Home of the sub 15M X system.
Hyrax: Core2 Duo; running Tiny, LFS noX, LFS with X, micro LFS (busybox and a kernel).
Eniwetok: Phenom X4; running Arch, CRUX, Gentoo testing, and Void.
Gadget: Atom (basically a netbook on a piece of wood); running a sid netinstall right now.


Image

Top-to-bottom:

Littleboy: Pentium 4; running Wheezy (netinstall), Ubuntu (netinstall), Proof, sid/busybox, #!, Arch, Void, LFS, Coal, and Tiny.
Toybox: Athlon X2; main machine, running a sid netinstall.

Let's see some of yours.

Thanks pids for a showing us your inner sanctum, no joke, I feel honoured.
I will post mines, but it will seem but the childs imitation of the parent.
That, and I'm at work this week.
Stay tuned.

Not much to look at here at home, most of my iron is at work. An iMac (17" model, 2006), and a ThinkPad T61.

nice thread idea pids.

Acer Aspire TimelineX, 4GB Ram, 320GB HD, Dual core Intel Core i3 CPU M 350. Got it for school in 2010. Has done me well since then.

This is a great thread idea. I'll start with the pics from the lab since I'm at work right now. Please excuse the horrible picture quality.
WP_000144.jpg
Here's my main "work only" setup. It's a T400 running openSUSE 12.3 sitting on top of a T420 (docked), so that I can use zeroshell to authenticate on the corporate network.
WP_000145.jpg
This is "darthsideous", a Toshiba Satellite L505 with 6GB of RAM running Sid.
WP_000146.jpg
...and the current "testbed" HP Compaq 8000 Elite which is the "fry-able" system (Arch Linux base, set up to drop user directly into program that I'm working on.) Also, a combination espresso machine/coffee pot that my wife got for $2 at an estate sale. This is the most productive piece of machinery that I own. ;)

...more pics from home when I get there.

i think there might be a scratching post in pid's picture. gathering more info on the elusive man.

DJ just photographed his coffee machine and tries to make us believe it runs Arch ;)

see if i can take some pics tonight at home.

Beautiful thread.
I'm at work, but the only PC missing is my media server, I'll post it later. Here I have the followings:

Image Image
Left: wife's old MacBook (she loves stickers, as you can see), external huge display plugged in for classes
Right: Thinkpad T61, with a nice projector plugged in for other classes
Both used by teachers (including me and missus) here. Both with CrunchBang and LXDE, all in Italian for lazy people. T61 was where I started my Linux From Scratch experiments, but my wife wasn't happy with me playing on it so I moved that partition on my media server.

Then, this is my desk:
Image
Left: ancient Acer Aspire 1304XC, Debian sid and framebuffer
Right: my main laptop, Dell Inspiron 1525, LinuxBBQ Elektra and killX

Ok, now I'm home so:
desktoppic.png
From left to right: t43, old Dell LCD, Acer Aspie A8.

Not pictured: any of my wife's computers, my kids' emulator box, my daughter's laptop, or my home-media server.

(I can't joke with Pidsley about hording...pot calling the kettle black and all that jazz.)
edit: The mouse hooked up to the t43 cost as much as the whole rest of the system...I perhaps need professional help. O_o

Work machines, both custom builds from a local guy, both with AMD Athlon 2000+ processors. The one on the left has Slackware 14.1 (32-bit), the one on the right has "n00b ki11ah" and "Arrogance" (pictured).

@wux: had to walk to the other room to get some books so i would look smart ;)
@dkeg: the glass is for rum (or vodka indeed) :)
the machine is that far for a forearm rest, but it is also the spot i can haz 90-100% wifi reception :)

nice pics dear people. as i am in the middle of moving my apartment (into a smaller and cheaper flat) I'll post something when it is all set up back. Right now typing on the 49 EUR netbook on my lap :D

workspace scrots, bit unfair because now that I know you'll see it all, I gotta put some hip things on the table. where's dat c64?

This is not a silly question at all. The answer is: I don't even know what that towel is doing there. I swear! That room is also my father-in-law "office", and he usually makes a mess of every single thing he uses. I'll ask him later. :D
