The shed is where lots of cool stuff happens. I make stuff, I play my guitars, I surf the web and look at... er... websites, as you do, music sites, tech sites and so on. We store a lot of stuff in here too.
This is our dog. His name is Billy. I use his image as my avatar on forums. He's a daschund or sausage dog if you like. He is about two years old and loves nothing more than to chew my things!
He's not a bad watchdog, he thinks he is a doberman with three inch legs!
He loves the shed.
These are my guitars. I have two and I love to play rock and blues. AC/DC are one of my favourites along with The Angels and new Aussie rock sensations Airbourne.
I write alot of my own stuff too. Some rock oriented, some bluesey tunes, and some softer stuff too. It is very relaxing to grab my guitar and just play anything. Often I will record while I'm just mucking about.
I've recorded quite a bit of stuff, none pro of course, just in the shed with my mates. Here's an example. "Get Your Hair Cut". I recorded it with a good mate of mine named Phill. I hope you enjoy! (hope the singing doesn't kill you! ;-))
Here's a video for your entertainment! It's another band practice... different band..
I have a bunch of machines ranging from an IBM 80486DX 50MHz 32MB ram (pictured) running Puppy fat_free-2.16-Dillo to a Lenovo R61e Thinkpad Celeron-M 2.0GHz 2GB ram (my son's) running MS Vista and Puppy-4.1.2 Dingo. My main machines though are an IBM Thinkpad R31 Celeron-M 1066MHz 512MB ram running Puppy 4.1.2 and Puppy 4.2alhpa and a home made job with a Asus K7S-8X mobo, Athlon 2100+, 512MB DDR ram running Mandriva 2008.1, Puppy 4.1.1. and Woof 0.02.
Any Puppy development work I do or test is with the R31 or the Athlon. If I need to compile anything I use the Athlon, it is still a fast machine, although I could do with some more ram and a better graphics card.
That's not all folks! Soon there will be more, bet you can't wait!
