    I like to think of it more as a "cess pit of pain and hate" than a cupboard, but i'll go with your word if you like

    If you use the words 'Cess Pit' I might mistake it for the IT office at 'The Other School'.

    My Desk is large enough for (and actually houses) 4 workstations (Mine, test, spare and CCTV/DVD matrix controller/router) and 17" TFTs, antistatic matted, 2 shelving units, cable managed, 16 240v sockets and 10 LAN points (PoE and non-PoE).

    I then have a repair bay with an identical desk in. Ruddy expensive desks by all accounts, but they were specced and fitted for us as part of this build, heh.

    Tamba door storage units for hiding clutter are good.

    NM has a standard desk, with a PC, laptop stand etc, "in floor" sockets, and a 56" plasma on his wall, with the CCTV joystick console on the desk. Plasma connects to CCTV matrix, digital signage system, broadcast system, laptop, Sky and Freeview.

    Always makes people go "ooh..."..heh.

    I really, really, sincerely hope that whoever suggested 'Motivational Posters' was having a laugh.

    Otherwise, I'm going to have to seriously reconsider my membership.

    These are some of the things above my desk:

Rooms can have Sky, freeview, VHS Video (yes, we kept one), 6 DVD players for DVD requests, digital signage feed, or a direct feed from the school theatre for broadcasts. I often get asked to send Tennis etc to rooms in the appropriate season.
