Parked in the garage

Since coming back from San Diego, I’ve been working like a mule, and this evening – about 5 minutes ago, actually – I was finally able to pull my Jeep into the garage. This is a major milestone, but it certainly doesn’t mean that I’m all settled in. It does mean, however, that all the heavy furniture is moved.

Well, except for the washer and dryer. And I’m really unsure what I’m going to do with them. Probably hang on to the dryer, and get rid of the washer. Anyone need an almost-new washer?

I’m discovering some things.

First, just in case I didn’t know this already, I’m finding that I have a LOT of books. Yeah, I already knew I had somewhere around 500 or so, but apparently that was only a partial inventory. I’m not quite sure where I’m going to put all these bookcases. I think maybe the couch was a poor investment, in that it consumed wall space where I could have put two book shelves.

Also, I’m discovering that I have a lot more computers than I had any idea of. So far, I have located 10 working computers, as well as the 5 or so not-working ones. Why do I keep the not-working ones, you ask? Well, one of them is an end-table, and another is a stool. Really. No kidding. I’ll post pictures later. The others, well, I keep them because, you never know, I might need them some day.

And I’ve found 9 monitors. Yes, that’s nine. And I honestly have no idea where they all came from. They all work, so no duds in there. And they are all reasonably nice. A couple 17″ ones in there, that I’m actually using. The rest are 15″s.

I might put one computer downstairs, in which case I’d have a use for, total, 5 computers (*maybe* 6) and 4 monitors (the stuff on the server rack is on a KVM). I’m not sure what I’m going to do with the rest of the stuff, but I don’t think I’m going to hang onto it for much longer. (No, please don’t bother asking for it. I’ll let you know when I’ve decided to let folks pick over it.)

Oh, and did I mention I have a lot of books? Sheesh.
