Help me organize my desk

Recommended Posts

Ok. I have been threatening to post this for a few days. 
 

Does anyone have any ideas how I can reorganize this desk in order to add a 1040 st but keeping everything on it that is already there?

I love your desk!  Two ATR8000s (and all those drives!)  A friend of mine had one of those back in the day and we had much fun playing with it.  I had an 800XL running a BBS and a 130XE next to it for my own use, with a TON of hardware, all on a relatively small desk.  Very cool to see this photo.

 

As for your question, that's a tough one if you want to leave everything connected (which presumably you do).  Maybe a monitor-stand, one that lets you slide a keyboard under a monitor, could be used, with one of your 8-bit computers under it and the 1040ST sitting on top.  Or move those ATR8000s (say, under that laptop, on top of one another) and put the 1040ST on top of all those floppy drives.  :)

Well taking Alberts advice and modifying it a smidge here is what I came up with. 
 

I couldn’t put the st in the drives even if I want to as the monitor cable for the st isn’t long enough to reach where the 1224 is. 
 

Everything is hooked up more or less. The Percom drives do not like to play nice with other sio peripherals so they are segregated but I just have to switch sio plugs and they are up and running. 
 

All my drives are individually powered on my that power strip so I don’t have to move everything to turn on the drives. 
 

oh. Yeah the bottom atr isn’t connected but I do have power going to it.

Sleeve city?

 

Hate those guys.  Ordered a few "shirts" from them.  I was extremely disappointed.

I fell off my chair when I saw your pic. And after I figured it out. I am a bit slow on the uptake. Lol
