Post desk trinkets. Something that says: "I'm in control of my life"
yeah those look pretty awesome but they're hard to find in good condition
God damnit I fucking hate hipsters its just hag holy fuck.
Also FUCK Macs. I use them at work they are bland shit.
>sand footprints all over OP's room
why would you do this to yourself
thx thats kool. saved4inspo.
i wish i had dollars to just throw away on one-a these bad boys... two-fiddy.
>Turn that snake thing into a ball
Soma cube. I have one just like it, red too.
My brother went to some conference and Google's booth had some. If you could solve it, you could keep it. He walked up, did it in like 10 seconds, and guys around him were amazed. Somehow it was like rocket science to them.
>Somehow it was like rocket science to them.
Maybe they just sent marketing people to the conference?
I was talking about the cubes and how I'm glad he's not one of those cube freaks.
It beats poopsocks and piss bottles.
The aforementioned Google fingerbox. >>46759677
Looking at it right now, it's a ridiculously simple soma cube. I'm wondering if the ones that stumped the other people had 3 dimensional pieces.
The fact I still have a sex life with muh men. DVD was a gift, I don't even have a way to watch it. Been a few months since I became single so. Yeah.
> 2 toy grade cars
I know it's cheating, but could you feasibly make a faux one, get a broken one for example and install a small LCD display or something. Or possibly make your own chassis?
Excuse the dust... some 3D printed projects, a maglev, and assorted collected things. Yep I'm a nerd
According to this thread that origami icosahedron I made counts as a trinket.
But I'd like actual puzzles and things to fiddle with, and a nicer desktop lamp.
I went off a image that someone had put on cusoo or whatever but didn't provide a model file, made the thing in lego cad, ordered all the pieces and built it
>some lego car
got it as a gift awhile ago
also a gift, it's got 10 minutes of flight time and I'm still shit at flying it
then there's the assorted storage
64gb for big things and such
8gb imaged with UBCD and a few linux ISO's
2 8gb kingston things, nice to keep on keychains
and then there's a dead 500gb hdd
One of these Cherry MX samplers. Gets rid of the urge to get a mechanical keyboard. I bought 3 mechanical keyboards before buying the sampler kit and none of them can beat my Logitech Illuminated. Luckily the shop I bought from had a great return policy.
I love this car.
I have a decent collection I rotate them from my display to my desk periodically.
nobody would do that, and I mean that quite literally.
Even if I was filthy rich with 15 maids constantly cleaning my house so if I spit on the ground 1 minute later one of them has already licked it up and then cleaned the spot, I would still not bother with this shit.
not necessarily on my desk but to the wall directly on my left. I fondle some of these when I need to think or when I'm bored.
get with the times, gramps.
also heheh how'd i know the sandbox'd ruffle some feathers?
never change, /g/, u so funney
I don't play with it much anymore, but it's still cool as a trinket.
There are seriously people on /g/ RIGHT NOW who don't have a promotional folding meter from the company they work at as their desk toy.
Mine is a CloseUp that I bought maybe even 8 years ago. Here's a similar one without the branding http://closeup-fingerskate.fr/complete-set-gen3-nude-model-1200-e-1660/ but you can check out their store, they have a lot more. Generally they are called fingerboards or fingerskates and there are many companies that make either completes or parts.
On the shelf above my desk I have:
>Asus p5k3 deluxe with 2 gigs of ddr3 1066
>Nvidia 7300 gt AGP
>Nvidia FX 5200
>intell pro 1000 nic
>my raspberry pi running a web proxy
>some shitty hp server board with a pentium d 830 and 2 gigs of ram (4x512mb) then random network shit...
Got the one IBM gave my grandfather originally, so that's pretty sweet.
would i have to keep this kind of stuff away from tapes, usb drives, external HDs, etc? magnets scare me
>tfw I have a pair of VT102s that work but have no keyboards
>the only fuccbois on eBay with VT1XX keyboards think they're worth $250
at least they get shit on in the end wasting space and time listing them over and over again
it's like having a spare monitor dedicated to a *nix terminal, really
>butthurt "minimalist" /bst/ shitposters ITT
sorry we don't acknowledge how special a snowflake your boring, soulless desk is guys
>scared to show unique trinket because people will copy me
>no point in being unique if you can't show off
show urs ill show mine its from singapore i was scared to show mine too but if u show urs ill show, ppl wont copy me tho... partly cause it's so unique... but i am interested in copying u.. pls
They won't harm nearby stuff, but they do put out a pretty crazy electromagnetic field that can fuck with wireless connections.
Example: When using my cellphone while standing next to one I was getting this clicking static in the background. As soon as I turned the globe off, the static stopped.
i dont want this thread to ever ever die i always want trinkets and discussion of trinkets it makes me so joyous in the soul mods pls stickey or maybe trinket general needs to be established love love love trinkets oh god yes
Honestly, what's wrong with Deadmau5? Whether you enjoy his music or not, he's probably the best audio engineer in electronic music right now. That guy's a genius with compression. There's not a lot of electronic musicians left that still insist on mastering their own music, he's cool in my book. In fact, most popular figures in the EDM scene don't even make their own synth patches anymore, it's fucking disgusting.
oh g*d pls no
>genius with compression
> buying a purely commercialized character with no personality, back ground story or narrative
I know qa guy who runs about 10 of those in a company he helps run. Until last year he was running a mini computer bought in 1979 that was running AT&T Unix and they were hooked up to a database he was running. I helped him switch it over to Linux and a more modern computer but we had to make the interfaces between that old technology and the new stuff ourselves. Let me tell you that miniframe computer he bought in 1979 for £20,000 it never once, ever failed. The reasonm we had to change it is because the database got bigger and we couldnt find any scsi disks with the correct pin configuration to fit it.
Normally I troubleshoot grid networks but working with that old stuff is GREAT!
me again - I just had an idea - I will get some photos of those terminal monitors actually running today in a modern business setting. Come back this time next week I will show you all a computer and network setup that will blow your minds if you thought old technology just gets thrown away, NO IT DONT!
I've been considering building a quad rotor for forever now. I've just never gotten around to it. I bought a Hubson and enjoy it. I like diy so it would be a lot of fun building one.
Seems like i would be great if it is only used as a workstation. He probably has a different PC he uses for movies, games n shit.
the keyboard isnt the important part, and if it is a terminal, it is probably something very simple like tone generation, you could most probably very easily emulate it using a microcontroller, which I would think would actually be more useful, as you could have it input characters from its own serial connection, so you have the screens without 3 keyboards on your desk
> all these organized people
I am accomplished at organization if I have maybe just 7 pieces of random crap on my desk.
I actually keep it pretty clean since I get distracted easily, we don't talk about the rest of the room though.
