Playing With My Weiner

Gaming at the mercy of miniature daschunds.

A few people have asked what my gaming setup is. For consoles, I have a day-of-release Wii (slept out overnight for that one), an original PS3 60GB with the Emotion Engine, and an original XBox 360 with the increasingly inadequate 20GB hard disk. These systems are hooked up to a 42″ Westinghouse LCD monitor and the room is wired for Dolby 5.1 Surround Sound.


For handheld gaming I have a pair of Nintendo DS Lites and a PSP-2000. Moving farther afield in the mobile arena, I have an 8GB iPod Nano and a 32Gb iPod Touch.  All of these (and the consoles) are lovingly skinned in Dharma decals from Decal Girl.


I also have computer love. I am an avowed Mac fan, and do most of my site work on my 2.5 GHz 15″ MacBookPro. That being said, I also have a Windows machine. That guy is a CyberpowerPC Gamer Ultra 5212 Athlon 64 X2 3.0GHz with 2GB RAM and a NVIDIA GeForce 8600 GT card running XP Pro 64. My monitor is a 22″ Samsung SyncMaster 226BW (sadly with a glossy finish) and my speakers are the Bose 2.1 set.  For controls I have a Belkin Nostromo n52te Speedpad and The Limited Edition PAX ’08 Razer DeathAdder mouse.


No, I’m not rich. My husband and I just tend to put all of our disposable income toward gaming, and have done so for the last three years.
