our connection to the cyber underworld

Here's a little photo tour of what we use right now in all its dirty glory. I did not clean up for this photo session. Each pic is clickable if you need to see a larger size. Just click "all sizes" once you land on the flickr page.
Image #1: This is Brian's elderly laptop, a Sony Vaio. We've lost count of how old it is. It's still running beautifully with Kubuntu 8.04 on it, the Hardy Heron. Notice the Palenque desktop wallpaper.
Image #2: My dusty 4-year old tower built by a local store called Intrex. It's never had the pleasure of running Windows. It's had Debian, then a long run of Slackware, then finally Kubuntu 8.10. It has an AMD something in it, and an ATi Radion something or other video card. I can't remember without looking them up.
Image #3: My dusty tower again. I really do take it apart and clean it often, I'm just out of the cans of compressed air right now.
Image #4: Snakes and wires everywhere! All that lovin' to and from my opera comes through these. Some other types of lovin' also flow through these cables from time to time.
Image #5: A messy desk is a good thing! I sit here to do my stuff.
Image #6: Ah, the KDE desktop is so purdy. It's KDE 4.1 running on Kubuntu 8.10, the Intrepid Ibex.
