Work is done. New flooring, cabinets and dragged everything into my cave.

Well, everything up to Pentium 3... Newer stuff (mostly p4 and core2) is at a storage unit.

Hereby I humbly request your permission to brag a little.

Looking good! I see you suffer from the constant lack of space just like I do. I keep upgrading with more shelves but fill them up under a month.
I don't want to let go of anything!

Not really a lack of space, got a storage unit near here. This is just the stack of stuff I like most :p

It's more a lack of time... But my wife, son and employer all want to have their share of my time as well :p

That looks like the storage unit to me.

Well.. not quite... In my storage unit I stacked the computers three high on top of eachother in one corner and have the loose stuff in a few creates next to them... Also three high stacked.
This is the neat room 😁

I consider that a lack of space, it's irritating when you want to find a specific part and it takes an hour just to get to the box that contains it.
My boards are mostly stored in huge boxes so it's a pain sometimes but I don't have the space to store them separately.

That is true. Luckily I have sorted my parts well, and basically everything Pentium 4 and newer is stored 15 minutes driving away. That's not too interesting stuff now, as I'm more into XT to Pentium 2 at the moment. That stuff is at home 😀

I hope this is ok for a first post!

I will dive deeper into more pics of way more gear, especially more DOS/Win95 gaming stuff I have. Don't want to overload the server so I will post the rest with tiny pic of something.

Long time lurker (years!) It's great to finally have the courage to say hi to all of you.

PS I have way more photos and videos of the SUN and Gateway stuff I have stored in another closet. Is there an image hosting site you'd recommend where I can host the whole album??

Should I post the stuff in my non-working are in the Marvin section?

Again, sorry if I broke any rules!

Hiya

One of my computing area i finished few weeks ago.
And its been my main rig since! 😀

Lenovo Yoga 2 Tab, win8.1, 1920*1200 touchscreen, 5Ghz Wifi
4core Atom Z3745
2Gb ram
Bluetooth mouse and keyboard.
THEC64 joystick

A bit underpowered processors.
Ie. cannot run newest WinUAE or WinVice, but older WinUAE 2.3.2 and Winvice 2.4 works smoothly.

And when i need more power, i can take remote connection to my Xeon setup at the basement, with NoMachine, ie. Civilization VI.

that's so neatly packed up ^^

you can just make multiple posts if you want to post more images I guess, external images are just always a hassle imo.

Epic first post! Welcome.

Great storage of your stuff there - wrapping in plastic is a lot of work but I'm an anti-dust campaigner so find myself doing this too 👍

If it's broke, then fix it!
