This is my DELL E228WFP monitor, which is attached to a rotatable arm in the back. 
Makes it real easy to tate the monitor.  Only problem is that my monitor only has two inputs:
VGA and DVI-D, which means I have to switch out the PC and my PS3 all the time.
I think I can fix this problem with a splitter though.



Turntable, totally overloaded and ripped open HP, monitor, XB360 bottom right, PS3 up top.





Turntable close up.  Precisely one person on this board will recognize the record...



Bike.  Yeah I'm just posting whatever   ;)

My old room in Itabashi in January. I've sold the Border Down though, wasn't my cup of tea.



adverse: You can get VGA splitters at any big electronic store, like Yodobashi or Bic. I bought one recently for 3000 yen, but there might be cheaper ones. Need to sell it soon though since I realized I need like 4 VGA ports.
Did you build the rotatable arm yourself?

Looks a lot like mine, only whiter ;)

I need to get some LS32?s for my Egret 2. I don?t play it thanks to the pissy JLF?s

How on earth do you always manage to take such good pics? Mine are always a mess. Prime example here:

Lots of natural light but no reflections, and flash off. Always takes several attempts  =D

Johnny5, yeah it's wide screen: 22".  Useful for doing work with documents as well as tate-ing.

I picked up the arm on Nipponbashi, you can find it at the good Sofmaps with a lot of stuff. 
Gonna pick up a VGA splitter, hopefully that will solve my set up problem.  I used a VGA switch for a sec but that created ghosting on my screen which was no good.

Uhh... so that's what causing it. I have a switch (what's the difference btw splitters?) and I've noticed green ghosting since I bought it last week. Especially with black big text on white background.

is that an astro 2??

never seen one in such a good shot....the speaker panel is way different

very nice

i just have to get off my ass now and paint the speaker overlay on my older cab...cuz its yellowed and the new cab is pristine white....

the body on the older one is pretty much mint.....i cleaned the shit out of it and touched up the paint....

but that would mean i would have to stop playing long enough to do it....lolz

Thanks JPJ, I've got that sorted now thanks to the Oxtsu's group buy over at Smups :) 4 new sticks, 4 start buttons, 2 coin slots & 12 bolt things. The cabs will be tip top for my new games  :righton:

Totally OT, but adverse, did you put that fixie together yourself, or buy it as-is?  I found an old Azuki 10-speed frame at the local thrift store for $5 (precisely because the frame is about the only part of the bike that's not rusted or bent) that I'm converting as an end-of-summer project.

What the fuck!  $5??  Great price.  Does it look like this: http://oldtenspeedgallery.com/blog/wp-content/bikes/owner-submitted/brian-silver-azuki-10-speed-01.jpg ?

You're gonna make it into a fixie?  My bike is just a single speed on a Nagasawa track frame.  Not a huge fan of riding fixed myself, especially since I only do city riding.  Incidentally, my bike was put together by Mr. Nagasawa himself, or more specifically I went out to his workshop and he fit me for it.  But the only thing on the bike remaining since he built it are the Mavic wheels.  Everything else: tires, handlebars, grips, seat etc. I bought later and changed out.

Lemme know if you need any obscure Japanese parts.  :righton:

I gotta stay away from these kind of threads. I start getting such bad cab lust.  >:D
Now that I got a pretty good job though I'm saving up for my first cab.
