Very nice iconomy!. Mine is a hammer. Not a cute little plastic hammer that makes funny noises, but a big old Iowa farmboy hammer. I don't know; somehow it ended up on my desk, and now I don't want to move it. Plus it always makes people laugh when they see it sitting there...

It's Lenin. He doesn't photograph well, on account of being made out of Soviet pig iron or something.

I have no camera, but I have a Bender, bendering a paperclip, and a can of WhoopAss which I have come very close to opening on some cow-orkers.

Hehe. When I said "show us your computer mascot", I didn't mean it literally - that was just my way of linking to the site where others were showing theirs. You're all so obedient. I like that in a man.

These are all very cool, thanks for sharing them!

Thanks, iconomy. I saw all these and thought good lord, that many people have little computer mascots?

Then I realized that I have one. It's Nipper, you know, this guy. I don't have a camera here, but mine (it turns out, upon searching, there are an amazing multitude of 3-D models) looks something like this, only about two inches tall. He's sitting on top of the computer with his ear cocked toward the monitor. Somebody found this and gave it to me a while back, and so I put him there.

Same here, jpoulos. Weird to see it on someone else's desk. Even though it's sold retail.

This is a tiki mug I got on Maui a while ago. It sits by the monitor.

Heh. I don't have a digital camera, I'm afraid, but my computer mascot is a little plastic nun. She's about 1.5 inches high and she's holding a book and she's singing. I picked her up at an performance a friend of mine did a few years back.

My camera's at home, but draped over the corner of my monitor, is a face-hugger beanie-baby.

Like this one:
