whats with the monitors on their sides?
Jesus. You must have an entire level of your house devoted to your computer electronics.
LCD with pivot control ftw!Perfect for playing old-school arcade games (Pac-Man, Donkey Kong, etc.) which were 4x3 monitors rotated on their sides.
Also good for reading documents full-page, same shape as a page of paper. A trick I picked up from desktop publishers.
Most of it is stuff I used back in the day (the 600XL was my first computer) some of it is stuff I collected. Rather than throwing them out I saved them. They were sitting in my basement in boxes for the last 11 years since I moved (and sitting in boxes in my old place before that). I decided to finally get rid of all the crap from my move and that freed up space, I used the space to make a game/exercise room and to also display wares of years past.
Not pictured: the other 2600 variations (two-switch woody, darth vader, 2600 jr).

That's fine but you need the operating system to detect that you changed orientation, like a Tablet PC or an iPhone.
