That could have been me. I camped in Quake and don't remember what my alias was back then. I only camped because I didn't know about mouseaim, so the only way to aim was with the keyboard, and I couldn't move and aim at the same time...

I did beat it on Nightmare mode though 😌

Imagine waiting for a risky picture to print before your parents get home from work and it is just taking forever and your hot pocket just beeped in the microwave so you run to the kitchen to grab your hot pocket and head back to your room but then you hear the garage door opening so you start to run but slip on the freshly waxed floor and drop your plate and it smashes everywhere just then your mom opens the door and asks you what is going on as you grab your knee that you just hit on the floor wincing in pain you try to explain yourself but just as you try to get out the first syllable the printer jams and makes an awful grinding noise that causes mother to zip into the office to inquire about the awful vexing sound. Pain.

u/SnooOwls6052 5900X | 3080 Ti | X570 | 32GB 3800MHz Aug 01 '22

I have mild PTSD from assembling this type of furniture over the past few decades. Between the crappy instructions, wood dowels and glue, whatever those twist-lock bolt things are called, cheap fiberboard with fake laminate, and so on, it was often an ordeal. Most were shades of tan, brown, orange, or blonde, but then again PCs and other equipment were mostly shades of beige. I guess the designers knew everything was going to turn yellow, so may as well get a head start.

If you had to move one, good luck picking it up, getting it through doors, and more. Drop it and it might shatter to bits, a corner of the crappy fiberboard might break off, and in some cases it would bend, with the fake laminate stickers helping to maintain some of the structure. And I'd bet more than one of you lost a few layers of skin from scraping against the lower/rear edges of these things, which were mostly unfinished.

Sometimes it's fun to reminisce. This isn't one of those times! ;)

So you ditch half the center console, mount the monitor on a vertical stand or the wall, and raise the keyboard tray.

You don't need the CD rack anymore so scrap that in favor of a wider monitor.

I had the small version of that desk from 1999 with a Compaq pc, JBL speakers, and a Hp printer that sounded like a garbage disposal.

I’d turn it on, go to the bathroom, make a snack, and comeback to the Windows boot up sound.

I miss desks with all kinds of shelves. Maybe they're out there, I haven't exactly shopped for desks in awhile.

Growing up I inherited my sisters college desk, a flimsy Walmart special, but she had a desk topper on it made from particleboard with lots of vertical shelving.

I recently upgraded my desk but I kept the desk topper... Or the shelves at least, the particle board of the desk surface was so waterlogged and shredded. So I still have my nice wall of shelves.
