Pictures of SteadyState Internet Cafe Computers

I’ve been promising pictures of the Youth Internet Cafe running Firefox and Microsoft SteadyState but first I forgot, then I took the pictures and didn’t upload them, then I uploaded them recently but haven’t posted yet. Oh well. They’re here now! I uploaded nine photos to Flickr, you can see them all in the Lakeview’s Youth Internet Cafe set. Here are a couple:

So far it’s holding up to the abuse and none of the systems have been hacked that I know of! At our recent Volunteer Dinner, the workstations served double-duty as aquariums. Well, I put an ocean-with-fish screensaver on each system to help complement the overall ocean party theme. It worked pretty well! I didn’t take any photos, but the screensavers are still installed. So you can expect pictures of a re-creation in the next ten years, unless the computers are replaced before that. Ha ha.

    Thanks Ed! Certainly took a lot longer to prettify and make theft-resistant than I thought it would.

    We love the set up. Didn’t see the cables running around. Nice and clean. just wondering how the monitor was hung to the wall.

    The monitors are hung with mounts from TigerDirect, I don’t remember which ones exactly but they were the least expensive ones, around $20 or $30 each. Just a small amount of tilt adjustment and otherwise, not adjustable. There is a hole in the middle of the mount where we put a hole in the drywall and passed the VGA cable down inside the wall. Glad you like it!
