>>35674666I know, so worth it, amirite? Although I do see your point, OP's major flaw is that he chose the harlot out of the rest of the mane 6
>>35674666>not being religious and a waifufagPray for pony and pony will come to you. Also checked.
>inb4 >appleOut of the picture, I have my tower with some pony stickers on it. I definitely need to reorganize the top shelf, it's really just gotten cluttered and not organized at all.
>>35674694sauce for that luna pic on the wall?
i don't have one
>>35674666>not having both religious iconography and pony waifu autismOk satan
>>35674818>everything in this pictureHow can one guy be so based?
Messy desk atm, I have more pony stuff in my closet right now, planning on getting shelves to put it on.

>>35674884I spend most of my days contemplating either ponies or Christ
My desk is a mess, because my room is so fuckin' small. So much clutter.At least I have a couple Vinyl Scratches and a tiny Tempest.
>>35675103actually based with a pure heart
>>35674818>>35675103Based ponyfriend and fellow brother in Christ.
>>35674654I wish i had a rarara battlestation it looks awesome
>>35674666sure satan sure
>>35674895I as well turned my closet into a horse shrine
>>35674666Hey, its either worship ponies or worship [brand] or a mega-corporation.
>>35676985Ponies are a mega-corporation toyline, retarded consumer. You're still worshiping product.
>>35675110Religion provides social cohesion and a means for understanding your place in the world, fandom does not.
>>35678578nahi worship season 1 and 2, which are not a corporate product they are a work of art
>>35674694hey I have that mic
>>35678578I worship the idea of Lauren Faust, being seasons 1 & 2 of MLP:FIM which is not a corporate product but rather a lovingly crafted ideology from a kind hearted individual.
>>35678568Yeah, yeah, I know. At the same time though, I like to drop the /mlp/ mentality at conventions and just be another attendee who likes the panels, merch, music, and parties. It's a lot of fun that way, despite hanging out with mostly 4chan people. I got that because it was from Choco I think, who's a pretty cool guy I interacted with beforehand and I just wanted more Trixie merch as well.>>35678906Yeah, it's super good for what it costs. I'm looking to potentially spend more on a new, better one though. I heard myself in /mlp/con during the gallus-bully art request panel and wasn't really too happy with the quality of the microphone compared to everyone else's. I don't think that's enough of a reason to justify an entire new microphone, but I'll have to see.
>>35678587> a means for understanding your place in the worldReligion is more of a means of believing you're more important in the grand scheme than you actually are
>>35678587>>35678977I've found these both to be somewhat correct from the people I've met and friends I've made. I don't really know who's up there and which religion is correct if one is, but the religious people I've met always seemed to be successful and generally happy.
>>35679081I kinda wish I could get into it without feeling like I'm lying to myself and everyone around me
i dont have any poni merch on my desk yet, but heres my battlestation.
>>35674660looks extremely comfy, great job setting up the room, Anon! also ponka looks like shes trying to steal all the printer paper lol.
>>35679228Quite cringe, but there's always room for improvement.
>>35679111I was exactly in your boat Anon, you need to get into religion from a psychological and moral perspective in order to see it for what it is, a system of archetypal ideas and mythos that lay down an appropiate ethical structure through which to see the world to minimize the future inexorable suffering of life, after all, whether the gods are inside or outside makes very little difference to whether there are gods.
>>35678952look into something for compression/equalizing/stuff like that to run your mic through. might be able to clear some of your problems up.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sjk17z7THRU talks about it in here somewhere with comparisons between software on and off. dont spend money unless you need to.
>>35679228>not even a pony backgroundanon, what are you doing
>>35674654is that Tracy leaning against the Cards Against Humanity there?
No pony, unfortunately.
>>35678587>a means for understanding your place in the worldThat's sciencie, not religion.
>>35679401It looks like you have no leg space.
>>35674654Who is your favourite pony?
>>35678587>product doesn't tell people their place in the worldare you retarded or just don't want the goyim to know?Consoom and be a slave. that is what product tells you.
>>35679778>the birthday massacreabsolute top-tier goth anon. who's the cute pony I spy?
>>35679778Nice piss jug
>>35680127It's for tapwater, fucking dick knob. But yeah it's so I don't have to get up for a glass of water so I'll give you half a point for that.>>35680102OC pony I made for a friend as a gift
>>35680102Also yeah, TBM's great. One time I ran into Chibi while going to use the washroom at the Revival on college st. True story.
>>35679503Hope you're on the right side of the war buddy.
Not much pony, only a wallpaper.
>>35679778Need a better picture of the poner if you have one. My only concern would be all the minky fluff from sewing getting into the fans of the computer. That stuff gets everywhere.Basically nothing has changed in a year or two. Stopped collecting pony and moved on to Holo.
>>35679503>5 screens for spreadsheets
>>35679333if yours is so good, post it, fag.
>>35679352 But you could do this without religion. If you like the ethics that religion dictates, you can follow them without believing in a god. You could believe each human has a higher purpose in life itself and that our purpose is to achieve spiritual joy through art and self-excellence. You can believe that all life is precious just for existing. You can believe that bad people should be punished in this life. There's nothing wrong with religion at all. But it's not the only "moral" lifestyle one can follow.
>>35674666No one can deny that this is a sign from God
all scavenged from stuff the rest of my family doesn't care about

>>35680584>pencil in the floppy driveFor what purpose
>>35680715Post wallpaper source please moonfriend.
>>35680584When krauts have autism, they have it bad
>>35681153It's right there in the photo, my dude
>>35680472Sure, she looks like thisAs for the fluff, yeah it can be messy but not a lot I can really do about it
>>35680715>>35681170based and thonkpadded
>>35681178Super cute. Looks like cotton candy. Do you have a pattern for the jacket? I've wanted to make a dress for Octavia but I hate patterning and I'm so lazy I just wrapped a shirt around her.
>>35681309yeah pattern making is pretty much the worst thing ever. I made my own pattern for that hoodie but right now it's just pieces of unmarked paper and a lot of mental notes. I'm going to refine it further anyway, plus you know how pattern makers are about giving patterns away. Also octavia doesn't have wings so you don't have to work around that limitationWant to know how to do it relatively easily? Wrap the plush with strips of paper and tape to make a paper-mache kind of version of the clothes right on the body, then carefully cut it off along where you want the seams to be and lay the pieces flat. That'll give you something very close to the shape you want right off the bat. I only did a couple of edits on mine to get it how I wanted it.
>>35679401God, what a sty, I love it. Lego castles, Playmobil man, video game cases in a haphazard pile, controller that's caked in dust, a bevy of old unorganized books punctuated with liquor bottles and doodads, dirty laundry/rags next to your tower, power strip with cords just everywhere...What's in the jars? They look like a pickle jar and a preserves jar, but surely they're repurposed, right? Whatever's in them must be important enough to keep them within arm's reach.And like that other anon said, there appears to be no room for your legs, it's not even an actual desk.You're a mess, you're my kind of mess.>>35680481It might just be reminding me of my childhood bunk bed, but that looks like a cozy little shitpost nest you've got there.>>35680660Aww cute, it matches you ;)
>>35681507>Lego castlesI didn't want to disassemble it. When I get my own place, I'm gonna go to that one Lego dealer site and buy every set I had growing up only this time, not cannibalize them for my own projects. That's what it means to be an adult.>Playmobil manHe was on the birthday cake when I turned 1. I keep him around along with a number of other things: two snowglobes behind the salsa and peanut butter along with a small ceramic figure in my pocket to remind me that my mom loves me.>video game casesIncluding original Gameboy (along with Gameboy Camera), SNES, mid-90's PC, N64, Xbox, PS2, Xbox 360, 00-10's PC and a few promotional floppy discs for Independence Day and Mars Attacks along with a Windows 95 backup and an emergency Windows 95 backup. There's one floppy that just has MOON! scribbled on it. Least and certainly least is one of those Tiger Electronics things that we all had. I got that one from my cheap uncle in 1997 for my birthday when he asked me what I wanted I said Bomberman 64.>old unorganized booksNot so much in this picture but definitely present.>liquor bottlesNo alcohol. Never been a fan of it, and I can't drink it anyway while I'm on these particular antidepressants.>dirty laundryYes. Though I put those shirts there because late at night, I get hot for some reason, so I take my shirt off and often forget about it before bed. There are four shirts there.>jarsSalsa on the left, peanut butter on the right, panko flakes on the far right. I like to snack on chips and salsa or pretzels and peanut butter. Panko for ramen. Nothing interesting.>leg roomI have enough. It's not a desk, but I took the doors off a cabinet and rest my feet on the bottom.
>>35674654How did you get that? Its amazing!
>>35680584give me that monitor
>>35680435Helped destroy the goon empire once, glad to do it again.
>>35680581>>5 screens for spreadsheets>literally no spreadsheets in the picture.What did he mean by this?
will rate some tomorrow morning, I need more plants that my cat won't eat that are also not spikey.
>>35679228looks extremely comfy, can i get a sauce on the wallpaper?
Here's the buggo rig. I need more buggos
>>35680584What I wouldn't give to get my hands on a decent CRT monitor
>>35683315what a clusterfuck.
>>35681351True enough about giving away patterns. I know about the paper trick. But I haven't sewn anything since I finished my two LS plushes.No motivation for it. Only reason I want something for Octavia is to hide the lewd.>>35681507>cozyIt is. Futon is getting old but I haven't wanted to spend the money on a nice memory foam one yet.>>35681658He custom painted it and got nice cable wraps. Also got his front panel signed by Rarity's VA. I've asked him a few times about his build. It's by far the nicest battlestation I've seen even accounting for /g/ and /wg/ threads.
>>35674694nice brony pride tag, tranny.
>>35675103How extremly based, also why is your lamp aiming to the ceilling? Is there like a purpose in that? Looks like it's like that for some reason.
>>35680108Dare I ask why you have a jar of marinara sauce within arm's reach?
>>35674676But he didn't choose your mom
>>35674666And that's a good thing, real ponies > false god
>>35683745lol I have that same keyboard and same baby Celestia plush.
>>35683315>Blew all this money on everything else so it's perfect.>Forgot the desk.
>>35683687It's not even close to a comprehensible pattern right now anyway. I removed pieces on the fly to add the stretch knit parts, seam allowances aren't marked, nor are the areas that need to be hemmed. Giving it away as is would be a 50/50 chance that it would help or harm anywayYou've got way too much stuff for my taste. I kinda hate owning things and try to get rid of as much as possible whenever I move. Besides my workroom, the rest of my living space looks like this
>>35683758>lewd fillies openly displayed in the living room>in classy frames no lessbased
>>35683759if you're going to have lewd fillies on display, you have to pay for it with a bit of tastefulnessThe other three are these
>>35683772Okay, your house is now officially the most based thing I've ever seen on this board.
>>35683758>way too much stuffFor better or worse I've always been materialistic. Back when MLP was going strong it was cool to be a part of the community. Participating in the /plush/ and 4CC. Getting to post an absurd amount if pony stuff with a unique battlestation. The thing I've tried to do with owning so much crap is to keep it focused on a unified theme. My computer area is mostly just pony. And my room is mostly Spice and Wolf. It's the other random stuff like swords and random anime that I want to cut down on. Keeping everything themed.>>35683759Perks of living alone is displaying whatever you want. Framed posters are always top tier compared to just paper stuck on the wall.
>>35683814Thanks. Having this much good taste can feel like a lot of responsibility sometimes.>>35683816gonna be honest, idk what spice and wolf is. As to personal possessions, years ago I stored everything I'd owned up to that point when I moved to Toronto and I was living in one room. I've moved several times since then, mercilessly disposing of anything I don't think I'll need or use. A couple years ago they asked me to go through all the storage and I just said nah, get rid of all of it.All I've really added to my pool of worldly goods since then is tools and supplies. I try to keep things very lean so that when I eventually get tired of living and shoot myself in the head, it'll only take the survivors a few hours to disperse my estate.
>>35683837Spice and Wolf is an anime. It's set in a medieval era and has a comfy vibe. It sort of makes my room feel like a cabin in the woods. I'd like to get rid of a lot of stuff but I'm so attached. Fortunately I've lived in one place for 23 years so haven't had to make the decision of getting rid of crap or packing it up. I've got a fair collection of wood working equipment building up though. Don't shoot yourself, Anon. If you weren't alive I wouldn't be getting to have this nice conversation with you.
>>35683756Funnily enough I'm currently working on acquiring a better desk. Gonna finally be able to replace the piece of shit I'm using at the moment.Otherwise yeah, pretty accurate.>>35683476Eh, it's not that bad.
>>35683861ah, I never into anime. Pony is really the one geeky indulgence I've got. No dungeons and dragons, no gaming. I like to have work projects and I like to be left alone.As for shooting myself in the head, you shouldn't worry about that. It's not a depression thing; it's just literally what it says on the tin. I'll never be able to retire, and eventually I'll get tired of working. I've already done pretty much everything I feel like I needed to, and watching my father get sick has only convinced me further that getting old and having my body fail isn't something I'm interested in. I signed away my inheritance to my sister a couple of years ago.I am and always have been a stubborn cunt, with no faith in other people or the universe. Dying on my own terms is just how it's going to be, because I'm exactly the kind of arrogant you have to be to believe you're the only one who'll time your own death properly
>>35683894Pony probably saved me from suicide in 2010-11. Gave me something to look forward to and people to talk to every week with a new episode. I'm thankful for it. It has been somewhat difficult to find interesting things to do lately. Hard to get motivated to take on projects or hobbies.>Dying on your own termsKind of funny. My mother a couple days ago told me "No one knows when it's their time to go." Being a smartass, told her that someone committing suicide actually has a pretty good idea.
>>35683929Well a lot of truth is said in jest. Suicide tends not to be all that elegant, but that's the only ugly thing about it.What's ugly is mental illness, but you can have one without the other. I don't think we were meant to slowly fall apart. That's how I feel about it, and no amount of prevailing sentiment is going to change my mind. Not taking everyone else's half-cooked opinions seriously is the best strategy I've got for keeping myself from actually being depressed. I feel like I live in a pretty dumb world full of pretty dumb people, and I'm better off leaving them alone to do their dumb shit while I do my own thing. I'm grateful that they're competent enough to run the infrastructure that keeps me comfortable, but that's about it.What projects do you do, or would like to do?
>>35683948>dumb world full of dumb peopleI feel the same way. I tend to just mind my own business. Easiest question to ask.. "Is what this other person is doing affecting me?" The answer is 99% of the time, "no." So I don't care. Too apathetic to care about most of the world and too pessimistic to think it'll change.>projectsI play piano daily and would like to sing more but I think my vocal chords might be damaged. There is a certain rasp that I can't get rid of. Not sure if it's more because of improper technique or because with quarantine I haven't used my voice much in ~3 months. I also did some woodburning a few weeks ago. I originally intended to woodburn my computer case but never got around to deciding on what design. Pic related is what I did for the 1.4 release of Terraria. I've wanted to sell it or at worst donate it to one of the big name Terraria YouTubers because it currently just hangs on a wall in my sewing room to which the door is always closed.I've also been waiting like 8 months for my cousin to embroider the eyes for a 10" Dash plushie I've had cut out for ~3-4 years. I hate applique and don't have much motivation for sewing which is why I haven't really bothered to get her to finish. She's not the kind of person I'd ask for help on something important..
>>35683987You've got a sewing room set up but never sew? Your cousin has an embroidery machine?
>>35684012It's kind of a crafting room. I have my sewing machine in there but I also use the desk space for soldering, fixing, woodburning, drawing, etc. After the /plush/ threads died I don't sew much. Mostly just when patching up old clothes. I have 2 empty rooms in the house plus my crafting room. It's just excess space most of the time. My cousin sells embroidery for business. She also sews diapers, bags, backpacks and more. She wants to buy a $12,000 embroidery machine some day. The one she sent me has spools for 6 colors and a bunch of ridiculous features I could never justify spending money on.
>>35684036ah. Well I guess you've seen my workbenches. It's the same kind of deal. The rework and test equipment is too inconvenient to move but it's mostly out of the way. The table behind me though can be cleared off and I can set up sewing supplies there. Or if I'm disassembling something it'll go on there. If I need more space for cutting material, I can use the kitchen table. It's also easier to deal with cleaning up fluff from cutting out there anyways.I'd like to get my own embroidery machine. Right now I'm looking at a bernette b70 that seems feature rich for the price. It'll still cost me a couple thousand though. Right now I use my mom's machine, so when I need to do some embroidery I'll drive out there. Not very convenient though, especially when I have to test designs.
>>35674654I see you also appreciate best pony.
>>35683705Easier if you need to find something quickly in the dark but don't want to get up and walk to the other side of the room to get the light switch.I on the other hand can relate to this super hard because it takes me a hot minute to walk all the way through/around my parent's house and back just to get to my light switch that is on the other side of my bedroom wall. I can't blame anyone for it either since I built the damn wall.
>>35674654>cutie mark on the reservoir how did you do this?
>>35684094If I remember right it's printed on a piece of paper and wrapped around the tube.

>>35675143She really is my angel given by God himself from above.
>>35683697>>35685014I didn't make the connection at the moment of purchase with the colors representing trans people, I just thought it was a cool trixie badge, I still like it regardless. Regarding the brony pride thing, I'm glad to be a part of a cool community, so I don't mind it being a little cringe.

>>35687669Do you get these from conventions or are there places custom printing fabric mousepads?
[80's synthwave start playing]
>>35687757Got it at a convention, but I can't for the life of me remember which vendor it was from since they were selling a lot of different artists stuff. The art that was used for that mousepad is by Viwrastupr:https://derpibooru.org/images/1250413
>>35687878Pretty, and it looks much better desaturated like that, good one, Anon.Do you perhaps use an optical mouse? Does the sensor glitch on it?
>>35687757I get mine custom-printed from AliExpress, if you know the right sellers you can get them really cheap and high-quality.
>>35687906Thank ya kindly. I use a Zowie EC2-A and the sensor doesn't seem to have any issue with it, just feels a bit more glide-y than say a Steelseries QCK+ cloth mousepad.Also worth mentioning that it was sold as a playmat for card games.
>>35687923Mind sharing them? I don't want to get chink'd
>>35687946I've bought a couple of mats from this guy: aliexpress.com/item/32690617246.htmlMake sure to get one with the lockrand. Free shipping to EU.

Brings a smile to my face to see these threads exist here. I only glance at the board once every few months now it seems.>>35674654Sometimes I forget how my setup used to look back in the day like my horrifying orange wallsPic related is probably last time I had a decent looking battlestation with the final revision of my current pc. Around about almost two years ago.>>35679389Yeah. It was a small little photo print I picked up at the /mlp/ charity booth at babscon back in 2014.>>35681658Built the machine back in 2014, then customized and refined it over the years.>>35684094I simply just applied a vinyl decal to it, used it like a stencil and spray painted over it. The same method was applied to many of custom parts I had made for the rig.>>35684945Always willing to give advice/feedback. I learned a lot of things over the last five or six years on what to change and improve. These threads are great for providing inspiration.>>35685737>>35685794Wish you the best, anon. I would rather have a roof over my head than a comfy battlestation any day.Just recently started to put together a new build for the first time in six years. I'm going pretty vanilla on this one. No case mods and no pone.It'll still be custom watercooled and all. I just don't have the time to go full out custom with painting and other shenanigans this time around.also, my current battlestation is boring and depressing so I probably won't post it.

>>35687757I ordered something custom printed from https://www.inkedgaming.com/ for last year's secret santa. Seemed pretty nice quality, from what I saw of it.
I need to start hoarding more shit to keep up with some of you fuckers.
>>35691445>moonman figurinewhere the hell did you get that
>>35691445Hey, I have that tower, too. I love how roomie it is.
>>35691650seconding this question, i want one
>>35689540I wish you well anon. Stay healthy.
I'm a comfy manchild.
>>35692917>nekokevin twilightexcellent choice
>>35692920The foam hoof inserts are wonderful.
>>35679778>Sewing machine and electrical tinkering equipmentI thought I was the only plush maker that did both.
>>35693003So did I. You're the only other one I've ever met.so.......pony robot waifus?
>>35689031Are you also by chance the rarifag with a fiata that had his hood signed at last BC?
>>35693011I've thought about heating elements lining the inside of a a life-size plush before, does that count?
>>35693057well it's a strong start to a problem I'm still thinking about. Which is how to not have them catch fire in the event of some kind of electrical failure.
>>35693067Yeah that's kinda prevented me from doing it. I've looked at clothing with built in heating elements and found where to get them but haven't seen any controllers that I feel like would be safe. I'm not actually worried about the heating elements going up as fuses solve that, but rather lipo battery packs going nuclear is my fear.
>>35693086that was the exact concern I left out of my last post. I'd be looking at lipo cells to power the board as it's likely to be fairly processor intensive. Using ones that can provide just enough current for the demand instead of high drain ones is a start, but they still will be packing a lot of chemical energy. You don't need that much energy to start a fire anyways if a short is next to flammable material.I don't think I'd even consider running a heater off of batteries. As much as anything because how long would it even run for? Minutes?
>>35693067use thermistors if you don't want to use temperature ICs, they're passive and you just need to figure out the fire hazard temperature. a good old fashioned fuse should do the trick too.>lipo battery packs going nuclearoh. yeah that'll probably happen instantly and render any safeguards useless. don't buy cheap chinese shit. I have a 20000mah battery i decided to take a chance on from china and it's already inflating. i'll probably take it outside and throw a brick on it and see what happens.
>>35687388>>35686830>>35687565>>35687688>>35689031>>35689663>>35689670>>35692917fuck all you middle class faggots and your dual monitor setups, i don't know how you it. i'm still stuck in '83 with hand me down CRTs and VCRs
>>35693118yeah, thermistors and PTC fuses would be a minimum. I've used them in other designs where I was afraid of overcurrent killing thingsI'm sure there are official guidelines somewhere for this
>>35693118I'm well aware of what cheap lipos do. Had one go off in front of me as the guy handling it set it down on a table. Having to need a lipo balancer built into the control board is a real bother though since even good lipos need cell balance. It's almost Arduino territory at that point. Might as well as wifi and remote control.>>35693106Not terribly long, a hot plush is no fun once the bed warms up. Would be great for a cold bed on a cold day though, just long enough to get comfy then shut off.Had thought of doing warmed up lewd bits as a starting exercise since they would probably be easier to experiment with rather than a full size plush.
>>35693166Add Wi-Fi and remote control*
>>35693166>warmed up lewd bitsjeez
>>35693173Putting your dick into cold plush is a real problem man.
>>35693166>>35693173That sounds kinda hotPun intended
>>35693183>>35693186I'm kind of against fucking plushies if I'm being honestIt's a lot of work making something nice just for someone to cram their nasty ding dong in it
>>35693183yeah you might as well fuck a dead horse
>>35693106>running a heater off of batteriesthat's why you gotta plug her into one of these:
>>35693198my dubs faggot
>>35693201i don't think those are dubs anon
>>35693187Never saw that as an issue. I make money off the plush, and someone gets to make love to their waifu. Everyone is happy.
>>35693237it's just not something I'm gonna doso, you take commissions?
>>35693248As an additional reason I would rather do it myself than have the customer do it out of desperation. I only did life-sizes so the concern would be real.I don't any more and haven't in a while one I got a job. I learned plush making here though a few years ago.
>>35693266different anon here, are you saying you're open to making lewd but don't like the idea of someone dicking the plushie?
>>35693279No, I'm perfectly fine with it.
>>35693295wait....i think I (You)d the wrong guy.I meant to ask >>35693187i need to get some rest
>>35693309yeah I guess you meant me. But no I don't make lewd ones.
>>35693312may i ask why not? i'm not into lewd either but i want to hear someone else's reason, considering most people on this board are into lewd
>>35693319I work on things I take pride in, things that are respected for their craftsmanship. I have a lot of very negative attitudes about sex in general, and won't spend my time and ability on making sex toys
>>35693331very based anon. personally i would never feel comfortable owning a lewd plush. I just dont feel THAT way about the characters, i'd imagine i would be doing something wholesome with them instead, or cuddling at the most.
>>35693331>>35693341ITT: a bunch of fat prudes talk about why sex = bad
>>35691756>>35691650Not that anon, But you can get it by looking for "mac tonight toys" on ebay or similar
>>35693331I'm not sure how making something with pride is mutually exclusive from someone putting their dick in from time to time. If someone loves what I make I'm happy for that.
>>35693341Yeah that's what works for me>>35693358They asked me, I answered them, nobody asked you.>>35693389I just don't feel the same
>>35691656Got it on sale for $45 back in February. Most other cases at that price look like shit or are built cheap. It sucks that there are only two USB ports though.
>>35692917Did you literally censor the wings on that Twilight Plush? Goddamn, alrighty then.
>>35680472>Moved onto HoloAs long as you aren't that faggot holo4life, good on you. She's got a really well written story which is uncommon for most anime-based things. Hope you enjoy reading through the LN's!
>>35686830God damnit. The top background original painting was for sale at Canterlot Gardens for like 250 bucks and I really should have just ponied up the extra $50 to buy it from my weekend spending funds. It's such a good picture.
>>35679081Yeah, until you find out it's a fucking lie.Then that is pretty miserable.
>>35693129 >>35689663To be completely fair mine aren't even monitors. they're both TV's I've scrounged up at yard sales. one is 1080p and has a line of dead pixels on the far right side and the other is a 720p thicc tv from years ago.
>>35689031Good to see you're still around, loved seeing your pictures throughout the years
>>35694625I've been asked a few times if I'm him. No clue who he is or why he's loved/hated.>Hope you enjoy the LNsI finished those a couple years ago. They're pretty relaxing to read most of the time. There are a few moments with blood and terror but compared to like... Wheel of Time or the Lightbringer series it's nothing. My main complaint with the LNs is that the last book has a story about Lawrence and Holo inviting people to the wedding but then the next chapter is some side story and the actual wedding is skipped entirely. No description of her dress or a kiss or her ears/tail fluffing up. Disappointing. I'm at least thankful for a spinoff involving Myuri. More cute wolfgirl.
>>35695537>those Celestia and Luna wood lasercutsDamn those look nice. I saw that vendor at Bronycon, but not until late on Sunday, when they were sold out of all the good stuff. Might have to dig up their business card and order online.
>>35696723You can also look to local carpenters to make those, most today have either laser cutters or engravers as a part of their shop.
>>35679228i like it
>>35687824 that's pretty cool anon
>>35683745Fellow widescreen anon, where do you find widescreen MLP wallpapers? Thx
I enjoy my setup. I would like to pick up a mlp mousepad at some point. I also need a rack or a shelf to display plushies on.
>>35693019I am not. Never got the chance to attend BC sadly.
>>35697400>pre-Lenovo thinkpad running ubuntubased
>>35693019Just realized I took this picture 1 year ago today.
>>35679906>blaming the Jews for your small penis
>>35689031>>35674654Hey I remember you on the /v/ battlestation thread and loving your set up, till the meaningless mods deleted your posts but left the small dick /pol/ losers posts alone in that same thread.
>>35674654My usual setup back home. Now I am on a tiny desk with only the laptop and cintiq.
No pony stuff and a bit of a mess cos very small room.>took this standing on the bed
>>35674654no pony I'm afraid OP, and I didn't have a pony wallpaper in this shot but I do now. Looks a bit iffy but that's just because we moved house this time last year, and I'm doing my room up (having furniture delivered, getting things out of storage, new desk and chair etc.) over Christmas while I'm at University so I can do it in the new year and make it my room properly.
>>35698936wth is up with that CRT?
>>35696723Found it for you AnonLook up 'EarthPonyCreations' on Etsy.
>>35683888Can I get a copy of that background please? Gives me Calvin and Hobbes vibes.
>>35699056I love it, not for anything specific I just love the sound it makes and the low refresh rate that makes your hand look funny if you wave it in front.and the cathode rays make me smarter
>>35699320Looks like it's https://derpibooru.org/images/500590I searched 'safe, pinkie pie, scarf, snow' (sorted by score) and this soulless vector version https://derpibooru.org/images/699524 was on the first page. It had two artist tags, so I figured it was a remake of a previous pic, and checked the artist whose name didn't match the source URL. 'artist:umeguru, snow' gives exactly the right result, as well as a Surprise version https://derpibooru.org/images/500589TL;DR git gud
>>35683315>this thread made me finally replace the 200m red front fan that came with my case with an RGB one so I can turn all my lighting green and blue for a Chryssi theme>the stock cable doesn't reach either of the RGB headers on the boardFUCK
decorating computers is like the weirdest thing to meThe only reason to make it look cool is if I want to display it. I don't. I want it shoved under my desk in a corner out of the way where it's not shitting up my space.And if I did want to display it, why buy the computer equivalent of christmas lights and put them in a transparent box? I've seen way more interesting, classy things done with computer hardware from scratch.iunno
>>35700296Why paint your walls a colour you like or put up pictures you find pleasing? It's about making your living environment aesthetically pleasing to yourself. If for you that's minimalism and hiding things out of the way, great. But that's not the same for everyone. I wouldn't decorate my home like my grandmother's either.
>>35700328okay but why the computer specifically? Why not the microwave? I have to have that on the counter instead of the floor so it's a way better candidate.
>>35700337Because you can, and people typically spend more time at their computer than at their microwave. You can buy custom parts for PCs but to my knowledge, that's not something you can do for microwaves. But I'd still consider it preferable to have appliances I like the look of over ones I don't. Some people are more utilitarian in outlook and don't care about such things, obviously.
>>35700351Well, okay I'm definitely at my computer more than my microwave, but I'm looking at the monitor, not the box. I've probably looked at my microwave more than my computer case.
>>35699874ripI wanna add in a splash of blue to my rig too but unfortunately my fans are just green.
>>35700443If the thread stays up long enough for my cable splitter to arrive I'll post a pic. My case is an old HAF 912+ which I'm keeping forever because the airflow is great and the mesh and air intake/exhaust holes are very honeycomb-like, which adds to the hive feel.
>>35689031I can only wish about getting a custom case that cool.
>>35683745>epic games launchercringe
>>35700500That is a nice beefy case. My case has holes in a similar pattern, and behind them is an actual honeycomb-like grid which looks really cool in the dark with the fans shining through.I'd show pics but my phone's camera is dogshit at taking dark pics.
>>35700500Does Cooler Master still make the HAF 912? I love mine, but I kinda want to upgrade my PC.
>>35699320>>35699728Here is a high resolution version I made with waifu2x
>>35700779>Does Cooler Master still make the HAF 912?I'm pretty sure they're OOP, though you might be able to find one second hand, they were pretty popular at the time.>I love mine, but I kinda want to upgrade my PC.So do you mean you have one already? Why not just dump the internals? Mine's on its third set. The extra drive bays are removable so it will fit larger modern GPUs as long as you don't need space for more than two 3.5" and two 2.5" drives (and even then, you could fit adapters to the 5.5" bays for more space).The one thing that won't fit in there is radiators for water cooling. They have to be mounted externally to the top, there are pass-through holes in the rear for tubing; pic related. Looks kinda cool though, fits in with the industrial feel.
>>35700833Looks like it's no-joy for a GPU though.
>>35700841I've never actually tried water cooling so I wouldn't know. Does the lower tube need to dip down like that for water flow? If so yeah, it doesn't look like you'd get one in there. I can't imagine why anyone would need to water cool a PC that's using onboard graphics though. Really heavy duty spreadsheets?
>>35700363A PC can be compared to a car. Your monitor is the windshield, mouse is the wheel, and your tower is the body of the car, and CPU/GPU is the engine. Upgrade it to make it faster, decorate it for show, personalize it how you want it. Everyone has different aesthetics and different price ranges. It's something you use every day and most towers aren't stuffed away under a desk in a black shadow.
>>35700962funny you should mention thattwo months ago I ran someone over. He's fine, but the car was written off for damage. Not because there was anything wrong with the car mind you; just because the garage wanted thousands to replace panels and redo the paint. I said no go, car's fine, just needs a windshield, so I kept it as owner retained salvage, took the payout for the value of the car and paid $300 out of that for the glass.The car's still got a face-print in it because I couldn't be assed to peen out the dents, plus it's an awesome story. Still not sure what I'm going to spend the money on; probably an embroidery machine. Definitely not spending it on fairy lights for my desktop.
>>35674654>Used to have a complete pony desk decked out in merch of waifu>Moved, now my office doubles as my guest room and now I have a moderately normie desk with some trinkets thats not worth showing offI hate what I'm becoming
>>35701215Sounds like you're becoming a functioning adult. What's to hate?
>>35697293Sadly mlp wallpapers for 21:9 don't exist as far as I know, this one was the only one I found which was wide enough to fill the screen >>35700678I installed it just for RDR2 which was being sold at a huge discount.
>>35701215It doesn't matter what sort of pony merch you have. As long as you keep her in your heart.
Could we possibly get some wallpaper in this thread too, as I would like to set up a folder for my desktop background to scroll through. Mostly comfy fantasy landscape shots, like >>35701425 anon posted, or favourite ponies?
>>35698404Thanks, anon. While I never posted my setup on any board outside of /mlp/ aside from two posts in guts threads on /g/ years ago, I've seen it from time to time on /v/ or even /b/ which gives me a chuckle.>>35700296>The only reason to make it look cool is if I want to display itThat's pretty much the only reason anybody customizes their computer aesthetically. Even if the only person that would ever see it is themselves.I actually know a number of people who share the same mindset as you. They have no interest in looks whatsoever as look as long as the pc works and does what they need it to. Nothing wrong with that desu.I can actually relate in terms of people using RGB parts and products more specifically the rainbow vomit modes. I just can't stand the look and don't understand how people think it looks nice.My use of RGB has always been to achieve a single specific color, like purple for example.>>35700500Always wanted the HAF back in the day. What a beast of a case.>>35700601A lot of the case mods I did weren't all that difficult or expensive. Most of it was achieved with some materials from hobby and hardware stores and some spray paint.>>35700833Impressed that you got it to work in the case at all.>>35701215I'm right there with you, anon. Although my setup is rather bland simply because I haven't had the time or energy to really decorate up like it used to be.>>35693129Monitors are really the last thing I end up upgrading. I wait a good while for one to reach an affordable price and have decent features. My last upgrade was to a 27 inch 1440p IPS 144Hz G-SYNC/Freesync which I think I got for around $300.>>35680450Nice O11-D. I'm using the XL in my next build.
>>35702617What are you going to do with your raribuild?
>>35702739Probably move it out to the living room to be used for VR.
>>35701742I think I've got a few.
>>35702617>Impressed that you got it to work in the case at all.Ah, that water cooled pic is not actually mine. It was just an example for the Anon interested in a HAF case, so if he wanted to do water cooling he'd know what he was in for.
>>35674654bump, my station to dirty to post
>>35701742hasnt been touched since 2016 and before uploading i ruined its sorting with a careless dupe removal pass so most of the images are in the unsorted folder but here are a bunchhttps://mega.nz/folder/TFsCzYwQ#pw6gsItrDQ4r4WRgioi0Cw
>>35679228this is my dream setup, so comfy.
>>35705121Out of 10, how comfy is my setup?Sorry for the crappy image on the bottom, I couldn't get a good angle of it in my room.
>>35705424so cluttered i at first thought it was only two images, not three.
>>35705430How is it cluttered?I know the 3rd image is a bit of a mess but that's because I'm re-organizing some stuff.
>>35705424>australian shitpostermy family been homeless multiple times. we always lose everything when that happens. anon, this setup would give me extreme anxiety because burgerland housing system benefits people that inherited money/property. if your tenants don't generate wealth for you while you sit on your ass and do nothing but collect money once every 30 days, you have a right to put them on the streets. i don't believe something you literally need to fucking survive should be capitalized on. but yet, rent is $1,600 for a one bedroom apartment anyways.looks cluttered, kind of like my garage. do you know where your stuff is? i could not imagine owning this much. right now my living space is repopulated with things i raided from the trash. furniture wise, i'm still living in 1998.
>>35705434there is shit everywhere. Did you decorate it when you were eleven or are you just a consoomer.
>>35705424Austism/10>>35705436>rent is $1,600 for a one bedroom apartmentEver thought of moving somewhere cheaper where you can actually afford the rent?
>>35705440anon everyone is a consoomer today. you have that pc you're viewing 4chan from right now.
>>35705444yeah lemme just pick up my shit and leave, so easy anon! thanks for the advice!
>>35705449Well if you live in perpetual fear of losing all your shit anyway, it might still be a better option.
>>35705449glad you get it. now why the hell are you still here? what are you waiting for? your stuff isn't gonna pack itself, faggot.

So sorry you have to deal with that bullshit.>looks cluttered, kind of like my garage. do you know where your stuff is? Oh of course, even when my room gets messy I always try to keep it organized so I can find whatever I want.
>>35705440>there is shit everywhere. Did you decorate it when you were eleven or are you just a consoomer.Neither.the majority of the posters I've got are from gaming conventions, events or wherever else really.I just cover the walls because I don't like plain walls and, like having posters.Although some of them are just filler posters until I find ones that aren't shit
>>35705457i wish i was good at that. stuff disappears in my garage (obscure chargers and power connectors for stuff I use) and it can take me like a month to find it.with my living situation, i don't think it's gonna get better. i'll probably have to risk it all and go homeless if I want more opportunities. my boss isn't a complete asshole, otherwise i would've already been laid off due to covid and on the streets. If I did move, I don't think jobs that pay enough to get an apartment are available right now. maybe i'll just get the covid and go to equestria. that sounds nice right about now.
>>35705484>waaahhh my life is shitlmao seethe more, hope you end up on the streets you retarded douche
>>35705493fuck off edgelord
>>35705424Well, I like the vinyl
>>35705543Thanks.I won it from a giveaway during the '19 /ss/
>>35705581oh. oh!Didn't notice the /ss/ merch around itI remember you saying there was some warping with it, was that able to be buffed out?
>>35674666>getting satan trips with this postSynchronicity is interesting.
>>35705590Nah, the only real fix I found was to either put something heavy and wait potentially months for it to flatten out, or literally put it between two pieces of glass and put it in the oven to flaten out.Considering it's a picture-disc vinyl (known for having mediocre sound and easy desegregation), I'm just gonna leave it as a neat display piece.I don't have the room to dedicate a space to flatten it, and there's no way in hell im going to put it in an oven.

>>35674884Dunno, he's not that based to me. He has Windows 10 installed. That aside, anon's a pretty cool guy.
>>35705773What's with NPCs and "win10 bad" mantra.
>>35689031Got some watercooling hardware delivered today for the new build. I'm acquiring all of that first since they are some of the cheaper parts at the moment.>>35703577Oh ok I see. still cool though.
>>35706028They view arch or gentoo as the only OS out there because living in a bubble of half-working/half-broken software makes them feel accomplished in the face of an otherwise easy life.
>>35706901Lookin good anon, you gonna go for a theme or are you gonna go for whatever?
>>35707708Kind of the opposite of what my current build is. So instead of white and colorful, I'm aiming for black/gray neutral colors. A bit boring all things considered, but a change of scenery from what I've had for the last few years.
>>35699874>>35700500I made it. Sadly the keyboard gradient doesn't show up great in the pic (it runs blue-green-yellow top to bottom, the yellow doesn't show up at all) and that mug is the only piece of merch I have with me at my current accommodation.
>>35708077Looks great anon.
>>35708710Thanks. I'm happy with how it turned out. Tried taking a pic in the dark to show off the lighting better.
>>35687824>not using a crt with your apple iinot based, you have something like this? I think that's a crt, or it could just be a filter. >>35697068

Aw yeah a battlestation thread I can participate in without censoring content to fit GR15. Pic incoming after I no longer have sensitive company information visible.
>>35705440I like how this election tourist buzzword "consoomer" has degraded to the point where just owning anything at all is supposed to be a net negative. It really magnifies how retarded the entire concept is.
>>35709993No point in engaging with anyone that uses those sorts of words. They just want to spread their misery everywhere since they're miserable people.
