How is your computer area set up, and how hot/clean does it run?

I'm talking main machine. I'm starting a project based on computer area SPACE so one would have more free space on their desk...

I need a general consensus on how your desk area is set up...

i.e.

from left to right - Tower, Keyboard+woofer+speakers, Mouse, Monitor. All on the desk... I've never really had to clean it, but lately I've cleaned it out a few times for dust etc.

I keep my tower open for best performance (even though it runs quite loud), I'm in a colder room, making the machine cooler than if it were inside of a case ...

I'm not revealing my project until i give up or decide it's not worth doing (cost wise, or I feel that people don't really need more desk space)

My set up is a bit disarrayed right now, but I’ll give you a basic idea of how it would normally look.

This is how the office in my house normally looks: (From right to left, of course.)
Desktop: Cable modem and router, Left monitor (as is speaker), Thinkpad or PowerBook, Left LCD, Right LCD,(LCDs sit on top the stereo receiver) Right monitor (speaker), lamp and pen holder, etc.

To the immediate right of my desk, in a small gap between the edge of the desk and the wall, I have my 2600+ sitting on the floor and my 4400+ sitting on top of it. Two USB drives are stacked on top of the 4400+.

Edit: Mouse and keyboard sit on the desk in front of the LCDs, I hate keyboard trays.

i won't need any "project testers" so to say - i'm sure I could find people around where I live... If you want to help or make suggestions PM me and I'll send you some designs i've made...

This isn't a HUGE project - possibly money-making if i sell the idea to the right people, but definately not a good enough idea to live off of

Everything gets "lost" in one place, if ya know what I mean.

My flash card reader always gets lost in the medusa nest of cables.

My Genesis controllers always get lost on the side of my tv cart.

Etc.

Hey, the rest of the room ain't a shithole...
i used to have a room as bad as yours back in 12th grade (you know, when you had to connect 30 wires to run the piece of shit). then mommy caught me looking at porn one lonely 2 am, and took everything out.

the computer has been in the family room for.. 9 years. damn, she caught me 9 years ago. seems like just yesterday..
