Moving, the last frontier


Yesterday I groused about some of the last dregs of moving. While the majority of the unpacking has been done, there was still a clot of boxes in the middle of the garage. Annoying, yet stubborn.

This morning I was determined to do something about the clot of boxes. It was about 3/4’s of Barbara’s stuff. From her old office and from her folks house. Once I got determined, I was on a mission.

Second, like most techies, I have a box of cables, power supplies and other detritus of 25 years of tech goodies that I could never part with. I sorted them into three piles:

  • Power cords and adaptors. It is amazing how many of them piled up.
  • USB, Firewire, and network cables. The astounding collection is extensive.
  • AV and video cables. About 10#’s of them.

Lastly, I built a pile of donation boxes. More good fortune for the charities.

As I was putting items on the side wall, I noticed that there was something rattling inside a cooler. My missing cycling shoe. Yay!
