Now appreciate that my house is very very "hairy" - they may only be little but the babies sure do shed a lot of hairs every day - so should I place the case on my desk? :scratch:

As long as there's room for it on the desk and no danger of knocking it over, I don't see any reason not to put it on the desk.

I have mine on the floor next to the desk because I need the real estate on my desk. I have a "hairy" house too with two cats. I just open my case and blow it out every few months.

Yes, there is plenty of room on the desk - I think that it will be less effected by dog hairs if it is off the ground.

Unfortunately I went to have my hair cut and dyed today at my friend's house this morning and because of the excessive heat and stuffiness there, I came back with a thumping headache which turned into one of my (thankfully now quite rare) ice pick headaches, so I am leaving the computer hook-up until tomorrow. :cool:

How awful... Hooking up is a task definitely left to another day. Hope it goes away quickly.

Whoohoo - the speakers just arrived - they had got separated from the desktop package. Crikey, what is this huge "box" that came with the speakers? Maybe now I dont have room for the casing on my desk LOL because of all this Logitech equipment! :shock:

That will probably be the bass booster or whatever they call it. That should be placed on the floor for the best sound. It is non-directional, so it won't matter where, just so long as the speaker wires can reach it.

Nah, I just didn't understand that the cable ends you sent pictures of were of only one cable! I thought they were the ends of two different cables as it's very unusual for them to include an HDMI to DVI converter cable. Normally - at least here in the US - you get a cable with the same ends on it, not a converter. And as you well know, being confused is often not a long trip for me... but we got it sorted!

The clue was in the photos names, i.e. Cable1 and Cable2 and even now I am still a little confused....time for bed I think :wink:

I'm sure that contributed to the fact that I thought I was looking at multiple cables!
