    had a few bandwidth problems with photobucket but trying tinypic now so hopefully photos stay up!

    thanks again for the kind words. yes i have many many cd's. when i reached 2000ish i did transfer them to harddrive (at 192kps noooooo!!!!) and i've since added 2000 more. the task of ripping them at lossless is going to be herculian!!!!!


    thanks dude. the stormtrooper is the super shogun 24inch model by super7. strictly limited numbers (1200) made and sold out so i ended up paying over the odds. there are a number on ebay though!!! its pretty damn cool especially with the shooting arm and wheeled feet

    Is that a monitor on the yellow stand in the living room? if so what do you use it for?

    where the alcove tiles from?

    I like the black tiles behind the electric fire, nice touch.

    Also, where is the "francais" picture from? I'm trying to souce some nice art for my place without resorted to some ikea prints :/

    thanks dude. sunday morning for me is really sunday afternoon for my neighbours ;)

    the monitor on stand in the living room is for connecting the netbook upto on the weekends. some guys on an other thread gave me the great idea of building a pc into it as the stand is hollow

    Thanks! re: the alcove tiles, which ones are you referring to?

    also the design francais picture was from habitat- they don't have it any more but from what i remember they have some good prints.

    Can you tell me what is that screen coming out of the plant pot looking thing in the living room? Is it a pc or tv? It's really cool and where you got it from?

    thanks bud. i really like musical fidelity gear- very muscular yet musical especially when paired with the monitor audios. they also look the business. i mostly play cd's but on special occassions the gyrodec gets a whirl and produces a very inviting sound!

    i would like to go higher up the musical fidelity chain in the future as they have some cracking products.

    I can't say where Don got his white panels but if you look on here for the posts by Force you can see he has something very similar which I copied and put down the centre of one wall 36 tiles 24x8in all for the cost of £23. I got the wood half price sale and they cut it all out free at B+Q. I couldn't believe my luck...

    good spot matey:smashin: thats 'happy hours at moe's bar' animation cell. limited edition but still available Lollipop Animation - Art Gift Ideas Collectibles . They have some other great artwork too

    @phil5366- if you want gloss, you can get similar wall panels cut to size from most kitchen shops.

    Fantastic set up!
    What colour are the walls in your bedroom? I've been thinking of repainting my bedroom and that colour looks nice. It isn't pure white is it?
