Your nerd has built himself a cave. I’ve written about The Cave elsewhere, but here are the basics. The Cave is designed to allow your nerd to do his favorite thing, which is working on the project. If you want to understand your nerd, stare long and hard at his Cave. How does he have it arranged? When does he tend to go there? How long does he stay?

Each object in the Cave has a particular place and purpose. Even the clutter is well designed. Don’t believe me? Grab that seemingly discarded Mac Mini which has been sitting on the floor for two months and hide it. You’ll have 10 minutes before he’ll come stomping out of the Cave — “Where’s the Mac?”

The Cave is also frustrating you because your impression is that it’s your nerd’s way of checking out, and you are, unfortunately, completely correct.

Exactly Kinaidos. Fan and matches, fan and matches.

I agree with @5.

The ASCII art is way more tasteful than the goatse picture, thank God. That is not an invitation to post it!

The kindest, most wonderfully heart felt and sincere comment I have ever had about my new condo came from the girlfriend of my straight buddy: she said "It's a nice place but it needs a woman's touch".

I almost cried tears of joy when she said that. I took her picture and framed it along with her quote in my living room. Thanks Tammy!
