I have thought about this over the past couple of weeks, and after seeing Brian's new work area in his shed, with his computer next to his work bench, it got me thinking. With all the post that are made here daily where is your computer.

My is next to me at work all day, as I am working on one for work another one is next to me linked to the web, so I can keep an eye on the forum most of the day.

But where is yours?

Alan, my computer is in the "computer room". That room is about forty feet from the layout. Of course there is always the laptop. It can go anywhere!

PS: My scratchbuilding table is located right next to the computer. That is a must while trying to build something taken from a picture. :thumbs

Most of my posting and reading online is done on my notebook - which, thanks to a wireless "Airport", can be used anywhere on the main area of the house where I can find a quiet space.  Sadly the signal does not extend to the basement and the layout.

At other times, such as now, I log on to the forum at my work PC.

My juke box is about 30ft from the train room. It is located in a spare bedroom, with bookcases, modelling junk, etc. but no bed. The other spare bedroom has a foldout sofa bed, heaps of old mags to read, clothes airer, spare fans, etc.

My computer, a laptop, is located in the 3rd bedroom (the smallest) which I have taken over to have what I would call a study. In that "study" I have a table for working on, a corner desk which holds the laptop and printer and also my small television which I have linked (but don't tell anybody) to my Sky digibox. There is also a small book case and filing cabinet.

It currently is a trifle untidy  ......

"A trifle untidy" is the shout from SWMBO "more like a disaster area or a bombsite. Are you ever going to tidy it up"

"Yes dear, once the layout is finished"   :pathead:pathead

"Gawd help us !!!!!  I will be pushing up daisys before then. Get it sorted NOW !!!!!" :brickwall:brickwall:brickwall

Mine, with all it's bits and pieces, is in one half of my built in wardrobe in our small bedroom. The wardrobe has sliding doors so it can be hidden from view if required.

Mine is in my living room however as I work from home a fair bit I will be getting a laptop so that I can work elsewhere in the house.  My Wife will be at home with two kids for the next eight to twelve months and it's a bit difficult working with Hamish in the room.

The lap top will also be handy as I can take it out to the garage to do my periodic updates for ECoS rather than having to unplug all the cables and bring it in the house.

OK Alan, you did ask.



My desktop is in the corner of my play room.  I run my business from home, so it is where I am mostly. You can see an email from YMR on the screen.



This is our No4 daughter, Alice's laptop which is wireless connected to the net work and left exactly where she finished with it - on my chair!



This the SWMBO's studio which I had to build before I could start on MMR.  Sound familiar?



These are some wild ducks which have made themselves at home and are eating SWMBO's veggie garden.  Sometimes it's hard being green!



This is SWMBO's computer etc., inside the studio looking (glaring) out at the ducks, which have just exit-ed, stage left.  This laptop is also wireless connected to the network.  Now for the good stuff . . .



This is a shot of my laptop at the nervous centre.  It has a separate screen so that visitors can watch me weave my magic on the Lokprogammer.  You can see the YMR homepage.  You can also see under the layout because my curtains haven't arrived as yet.



You can see in this shot that I have split the screen and have a Loksound manual on the repeater.  This is useful when Lokprogramming using CV's for the more obscure functions.  You can also see the CCTV controller/monitor on the next shelf down and it's TV repeater in the background. You can also see the small cordless phone which is interfaced into the Lenz system as a "radio" throttle.

You can also see the mine coal prep plant in the background, and that the people of Monroe have erected a giant statue of a DeWalt cordless drill behind the railway station!

As well you can also see the digital readout of my speed trap - a usefull tool for speed matching of locos - and the repeater switches and LEDs for the passing loops at Salt Creek on the other side of the layout behind the hills.,



. . . and finally, looking left, the first panel of my turnout control.  I hope you have enjoyed the show.  Cheers.  Max

And having physically seen the SouthOz's layout, etc, our Max is a whizz.

He is like the pilot on the Star Ship USS Enterprise when he gets going - the fingers flash over keyboards responding to the Captains' command " Warp 9"

You are too kind, Sol.  Accurate, but much too kind.  It's a bit of fun, isn't it?

AAahh yes.  The old V2, Chief.  (Agent 86)  In the words of the great Greek philosipher Esophagus, "As you travel through life, every so often, you will come to a fork in the road . . . take it."

Could do with you sorting out our IT in the shop Max!

Just the one computer at home in the dining room although I can use the shop laptop if anyone else is using this one.
