    A dream because it is nothing like my actual desk at work. Missing are two monitors two keyboards two mouse, stacks of paper (I'll read and file these, honest), Telxon laser scanners (I'll reprogram these ASAP), and anything else 200 people have found for me to do while I've been on vacation this week. Monday is gonna be a real bummer.

    may your dream come true!

    However, what I'm missing is the revitalized gasoline pump in the corner, modified to always brew fresh coffee with a capacity of 1.000 liters/day or 250 gallons/day ;-} - otherwise your hughe coffee pot wouldn't make sense.

    BTW, can you imagine how my dream desk would look like? It would have a concave surface, so that everything that's higher than 3 sheets of paper would slide down into a chain equipped gutter, which will move everything to a hughe shredder!

    Fiesta! (I hate paperpushing!)

    Have a great weekend and ask your neighbor if you can rent his bulldozer to push the piles off your desk, ok?

    Jens, in my dream BUNN is installing a new super fast model coffee maker. It takes up an entire wall

    Gary, paper is that stuff computers were supposed to make obsolete We have it delivered by the pallet load.

    hey, that's great, but it'll be only a temporary solution ;-]

    Let's call BUNN and suggest following: a long hose with a hughe nozzle and a nozzle holder right at your desk, so you don't have to move too much - hahaha. Like at the modern gas stations where the hoses come from the top to allow a maximum freedom to fill any gasoline tank at any side of a car... Last not least the nozzle tip should have a diameter of at least 2 inches - anything less is kiddiiestuff :-} (I love them to fill up my 2.8 ton diesel burner offroader - it saves a lot of time to refuel).

    BTW, give the metallic surface a more industrial look with this texture ;-} (or is it totally out in the US?)

    Thanks Jens,

    That sounds like a good addition. Let's see, rubber and plastic affect the taste of the coffee too much. What flexable material could be used for the hose?

    Thanks for the metal shader. It should work very well.

    Why not just bulit a tiny Starbuck's in your office filled with gnome employees?

    Service.
    Flavor.
    Lack of value.

    Perfect!
