We had a thread a while ago about our computer desk. This one has 3 power strips and one has a couple cube taps in it, just for all the wall warts and other stuff to support 3 PCs (routers, switches etc). It all runs on a 400 watt UPS so I am not overloading the circuit but it ain't pretty.
I should post some pictures of my desk, especially the underside/backside.
It currently has 2 10 outlet power strips mounted to the back of the cross brace, one each for UPS and non-UPS power. I'm about to add another power strip.
These are all the metal type made by Belkin or Waber, using real duplex outlets. The 10 outlet models look like a 5 gang outlet box, and will handle at least 6 wall warts without blocking adjacent outlets. With small wall warts, I have been able to comfortably fit 10 on the strip. I normally place wall warts in the odd slots, and cords in the even slots. No cube taps, or wall warts on silly 8" cords allowed here.
The main workstation is a triple-headed unix box. with two (soon to be three) KVM switches (one per monitor). The desk supports 3-6 PC's, depending on what I am working on at the moment.
The UPS (1.4 KVA) is located in the server rack in the closet across the room. The cable from the UPS to the desk is just under 20', with half of that being the 10' cable on the power strip. It is routed, along with other cables, along the baseboard behind the workbench, and under the wire shelving.
The UPS powers the following:
In the server rack:
ER1. NFS server (p3/800 freebsd)
ER2. voip server (k6/350 centos/asterisk)
ER3. spare server (cel/500 freebsd)
ER5. feed to desk
ER6. power strip for DSL/switch/AP
ER6.1. DSL bridge (wall wart)
ER6.2. ethernet switch (10/100/1000) (wall wart)
ER6.3. Wireless access point (via POE) (wall wart)
ER6.4. firewall/router (p/133 freebsd)
ED1. KVM #1 (wall wart)
ED2. KVM #2 (wall wart)
ED3. workstation #1 (p4/1700 freebsd)
ED4. workstation #2 (p3/866 freebsd/netbsd/XP)
ED5. Ethernet switch (10/100) (wall wart)
ED6. 17" monitor #1
ED7. workstation #3 (p4/2000 freebsd)
ED8. DVR (cel/1000 knoppix/mythtv)
ED9. 17" monitor #2
ED10. 17" monitor #3
ED11. KVM #3 (future) (wall wart)
Non-UPS power at the desk:
D1. radio charger #1 (wall wart)
D2. radio charger #2 (wall wart)
D3. stereo (small Teac, built-in CD player/tuner, aux/tape/md in/out for Dish/PC/DVR)
D4. radio charger #3
D5. Palm charger (wall wart)
D6. radio scanner power supply (wall wart)
D7. radio power supply
D8. feed to tv/vcr/Dish/printer

D8.3. TV (13")

I will also need another strip for UPS power pretty soon..
Also on/at desk, but plugged directly to wall.
radio charger #4
