    ...you still probably havent got as much as this guy

    He must get paid a hell of a lot to be able to spend that much on equipment for a home lab

    Or his jobs involves going around telling people to upgrade stuff and then he keeps the old stuff!

    All that stuff and he uses Norton of all things....

    Although it looks like he's tried lobbing it in the bin but missed - i'll give him the benefit of the doubt!

    Re: If you think you've got too much equipment at home

    One of the laptops had a picture of a girl on it, I concluded that it's his daugher, and therefore not single......

    Re: If you think you've got too much equipment at home

    My tiny room at uni plays host to 2 x cisco 2610 routers, one cisco catalyst 2924-XL-EN, one allied telesyn 24 port network switch, one dual core desktop PC, one 2U rackmount VA Linux Fullon 2240 dual 1GHz P3 processors and several boxes of cables.

    That's all on the major ICT equipment that i have at uni. It doesnt all get used on a day to day basis...and for a 19 year old that's quite good i thought LOL.

    Then of course there's the guitars in hard cases and the big 50W bass amp lol.

    I wonder if i could get planning permission for an extension to a 2nd floor room?

    Nah I wouldn't worry about it, I do, but in my case its 9 or 8 dependant on if I want a VOIP line or Analogue line.
