and what are your passwords?
i7 something 15" Mac book pro from early last year (late year before?).
I don't care how it works, only that it works how I want it to every single time.
My setup is composed of hand-me-downs ... old iMac, old macbook pro, old iPhone and I'm about to score an old iPad.
It's great having relatives that must have the latest of everything.
Setup? I tend to take corners wide (and off the brakes, nuetral throttle, body weight shifted... are we talking about corner set ups? Oh looks like I got that wrong.
Computer setups? I have a tired duo core 15" lappy without enough RAM and an Optus cable internet connection. Sexy setup isnt it?
I find briefs give far better support than boxers. At least for my 'setup'
I do left glove first, then right glove, put my helmet on and check my nodding technique, left leg over first then start it
Left leg first? you monster...
Also, two 22" monitors, logitech G15 keyboard, Razer Tron mouse, GTX480, Q6600, 2.5tb on HDDs, 64gb SSD for OS
commodore 64 ....with floppy disks..im gangsta like that.
I like to start with the classic "Did you hear the one about..."

Maybe we are try hard Nerdriders after all?
I got sick of being tied to my noisy Desktop, and having cr@p spread around 3 or so computers, so I bought myself a laptop worthy of desktop replacement. A HP Pavilion dv7. 17 inch, 1920 resolution screen with some sort of video card, 2 750 gig internal hard drives, I think it has 8 gig of RAM, i7 processor, USB 3 with super speed, beats audio with some type of subwoofer I think, and a Blue Ray burner. I f#cking love it. I can watch TV, watch movies, surf the net anywhere it's comfortable, it processes my 25MB DSLR photos in the blink of an eye, and handles any of my work stuff with ease.
I plug in the 24 inch 1920 res monitor from my desktop if I ever feel I need some more screen real estate.
Another thing worth its weight in gold is the wireless network printer/scanner I picked up a few months ago. Hp again. Also has e-print, so can email anything you want printed from anywhere you can send an e-mail. F#cking brilliant. I'm pretty happy with the current arrangement, and I suspect it will last me a few years yet
Well for gaming there's just no substitute for a good desktop, though I do find myself missing my old laptop. It's still lying around somewhere, but the inverter burnt out and I can't be bothered replacing it. Thing's ancient by now anyway
Geek hat on
I run two systems (desktop & laptop). The desktop...

Oh, the laptop is a HP 15" running Win 7 Home Premium 64-bit with an i7 processor that I got cheap last year at OfficeWorks. I do have another desktop machine for a backup purposes. It was water cooled (including the GFX card) but I pulled that crap out a couple of years ago when I built the above machine. Anyway, the duck's guts are as follows:
AMD Athlon FX60 @3.06GHz
DFI LanParty UT NF4 eXpert motherboard (BIOS 11/02) - the best NF4 board ever made!

I made sure the wife got the big fast one, so there's no argument about how come I get to spend shiploads on a computer but she's not worthy. Besides, unless I'm doing stuff that needs big hardware, I prefer to be a linux user, which kinda sucks if you're also a gamer.
120 GB Vertex3 SSD
2 TB HDD
nVidia GeForce GTX580 (just one)
twin Asus 22' (I think) monitors.
Great big lump of thermaltake case, fugly but very functional. Some neon bling...

120 GB Vertex3 SSD
1 TB HDD
Asus P8Z68-Mpro MB.
nVidia GTX560 Ti
single 19" Acer monitor
Std intel coolers, std clock-speeds, Dog knows what memory timings. I haven't even tried to ramp these babies up - they do everything we need at std clocks and default timings.
What I should'a said...
ZX14 - 2009 build year.
Self: About 70kg naked. Wife about 100kg naked.
Front Preload ++ to one ring showing.
Front Compression +1 click over stock.
Front Rebound +2 clicks over stock.
Rear Preload increased by about 6 ~ 8mm on the shock body. Held upright but unladen, the bike sits almost topped out. (Unloaded static sag = 2mm aprox.)
Loaded Static sag - unknown. I'd guess it's about 15 ~ 20mm. That's where I think I want it to be, anyway.
(NB: If I only ever rode the bike solo, it'd be a bit softer in the back, but I need to compromise between road and sport and 2-up, and the wife weighs about 100kg - so it needs to be a bit ... firm. Besides, it steers better when it's high at the back.)
Rear Compression = +2.
Rear Rebound = +2.
Front tyre = Metz M5 - 42psi cold.
Rear Tyre = Metz Z8 190/55 - 42 psi cold. (std = 190/50 or 200/50)
If I know I'm going to go a bit postal, I might knock the front comp up to 2 clicks. It does improve overall stability, especially at higher speeds, at the expense of ride comfort. Overall front end grip seems a little better at 1 click, so ... 'What seems to be the larger problem - front end grip or overall stability and composure?'
and : or
'How sore are my wrists getting?'
I have a laptop. Toshiba. quad somthin. sixteen sheep of somthing else and everything I have plugs into it even the telly cable so i can record
