new desk

Today Manny helped me put together a new table. It doesn't really look all that different from my old setup, but I'm happy with it. I just need a mousepad or something to prevent the Magic Mouse rails from scratching the table. And for those wondering, I actually enjoy sitting on a yoga mat and maybe even prefer it to an upright desk and chair.


As for specs, there's a first gen unibody Mac Mini(2.4ghz C2D) that has an old 80gb Intel SSD, 750gb Scorpio Black in place of the optical drive(using a modified OWC caddy) and 8gb of ram. The Cinema Display is the pre-thunderbolt 24", iPad is a second gen, and iPhone is a 4 with a broken mic and cracked back. Audio comes from my trusty iPod Hi-Fi or some Grado SR-60s(not pictured). Comcast modem and an OWC Mercury Elite 2.5" enclosure with a 1tb Scorpio Blue are under the table. I think that's about it in terms of gadgets. Table top is an Ikea Galant, and the legs are from ebay. The top is from Nolan's WonderCon panel for Inception which is on the screen(Me and Manny agreed that we needed some Joseph Gordon-Levitt love in the photo lol).


Manny didn't really design this table as much as he assembled it so I wouldn't fuck it up. However, he has been recently doing a bit of freelance design work with laser cutting. So if you're in San Francisco and need someone who specializes in that, contact him on twitter.
