    Anyone notice the printer on top?

    How about the ancient apple in the background. Could this setup actually be from the past, with the current setup being even more elaborate?

    old school?
    head over to SimHQ ‘s Pit Builders forum….

    That actually looks like a flight simulator set-up rather than a “hard-core gaming” set-up.

    wow, a big ugly chair with lots of buttons & switches that likely do nothing.

    The printer on top is for the non-automated flight recorder .. lol..cmon it’s hilarious

    MechWarrior set up I think

    On the contrary, all those buttons and switches will do something. Flight sim setup (F16/Faalcon) based rather than mechwarrior.
    Thrustmaster stick/throttle kit, xkeys set. Would play today every bit as well as it did when first built.

    Notice the number pad next to the mouse? When was the last time anyone used one of THOSE?

    His and hers.

    Why is this a [humourous image] ?? Looks like someone spent a lot of time and money to get their flight sim rig setup. Just needs more monitors for panoramic views.

    @Roger Fleetwood. LMAO, but I sincerely doubt it. Unless his mother’s, maybe.

    @anybodysguess, number pad is probably for extra programmable buttons or entering nav values. Nothing odd there. Pit is a few years old but not ancient.

    Where does Goose sit?
