European Model – tiny boxes
A single of my hobbies: the Nintendo Entertainment Technique (NES)
These tiny game boxes had been published during Europe (except United kingdom and Italy) just before Nintendo of Europe in Großostheim (Germany) was founded in 1990.
They had been offered by Bienengräber & Co (Germany), Stadlbauer (Austria), Waldmeier (Switzerland), Bergsala (Scandinavia) and another firm – I have not locate out yet – in Spain.
It took me some time to collect and edit all these cover photos. However I will not very own all these boxes, but I am sure I will some day )

Combo entertainment center/function center
Picture by sldownard
I mixed my entertainment center and work center into the same room, both to consolidate room but also to permit me to conserve on gear: I have replaced my Television with the Apple Thunderbolt display, by utilizing an EyeTV Hybrid to stream video input from my stereo (recent sources are my TiVo HD and my external DVD player, which I have not decided if I’m going to hold or get rid of however or not — since it plays my non-R1 DVDs, which the MacBook won’t – and I never know if I want to bother with ripping them all to disk pictures pre-emptively). The display is in fact on a lazy susan which permits me to tilt it back and forth amongst desk-angled and sofa-angled. And you would not believe the amount of velcro holding all individuals wires tame in back of the media shelf so you can see by means of the back straight to the wall, with out seeing the wires. – It’s capped off with my vintage Eames executive chair, which I bought because I needed a chair that would be comfy for extended use at the desk, but also appear excellent in my living area. Can not beat this minor guy for very good looks!
Of program, all that sleekness is ruined by the mouse sitting on the legal pad – given that it really is a laser mouse and does not operate with the clear glass desktop. Ha.
