He's dead Jim! (No I'm not)



Not dead. Not yet anyway. :)

(There was a long exhaustive story here about how life sucks....but nah, let's not - just looking at the bright spots for now and trying to ignore the pain, heartburn and negativity)


Me. Dead tired. But.....my 2 old Ikea Billy's are gone (I had set them aside to sell off to pay for the 2nd hand Besta cabinets I picked up, but my wife claimed the cabinets for herself) and 2 used Besta cabinets have replaced them so all my storage now sits in one line. The not very deep Billy's always bothered me due to the waste of space when parked next to the Alex, and this remedies that.

 Old

 Empty

New! (well, second hand)

This cabinet is purely meant for larger scenery pieces and my printer plus paper etc. This turned out to be a small issue....


Well fuck. That dog don't hunt.

Got to love HP for listing the size of the printer.....without the paper tray in it!

20 minutes and a saw later I now have a opening in the back and it fits. Problem solved. Not pretty but it works. Just like me :)

My desk got the same treatment.


Then got another treatment.


(While cleaning the PC I realised this had a videocard with 2 DVI output - a short trip to the goodwill store for a extra cable and Kim's old monitor from the attic et voila, back to a double desktop. So much easier....)

And while I was at it.....


I found a quality display case at the goodwill store for a tenner (this was before the bills dropped) and hung the rails.....and then found out the back wall isn't exactly straight but bowed into the room so yeah. But it works, for now it is just to store all of the boxes with for sale stuff and stuff that needs to be sorted. Also it is a bit too long so it is messing up the big plastic storage storage.

I'm not sure how frequent my updates will be in the near future. I have 0 time for the hobby, family, paincontrol, making ends meet and jobstuff comes first, but I do try to get things done here and there

  1. Hey! Glad to see you are back, and still organizing that hobby room. And it is a hobby not a job, so get to it when you get to it. The things you mentioned as more important surely are.

    We will still be here if you have time later.

    1. My room really is a never ending story, but I want it to be future proof so lots of empty space (stuffed with stuff that needs to be sold). But yes, health and family comes first :)

  2. All coming together well - I really need to have a tidy up and sort out in my den and put up some more shelves. It's a mess.

    1. Almost done now....2 more doors for my whiteboards, and lots of selling to do to fund it al and fill the coffers :) But yeah, keeping it all in boxes and not scattered across the room should help with peace of mind :)

  5. Good to see you back online, brother. With the death of the Modern Warfare blog, I was concerned another fantastic source had dried up.
    I always see your organising as a source of inspiration, my better half wishes I had half your ability to organise.

    1. Just making due with the space that I am limited to, so I have to be a tad creative, but with labels everywhere it becomes so easy to find stuff.
