Moving a Mountain (One Computer at a Time)

April 28th, 2006 by Benj Edwards

Moving the MountainOn an unusually personal note for VC&G, I thought I’d let you guys know why I’ve been so quiet recently. The answer is completely on-topic and has a lot to do with what is pictured on the right: computers. You see, I’m about to move. Moving is no simple operation for anyone, but it becomes exponentially more complicated when your house is filled with over one thousand cubic feet (wild estimate, maybe more) of bulky computers, their accessories, and video game systems. I’ve not even actually started moving yet, but I’ve spent the last few weeks packing things up and getting things ready for the big haul. Phew. Next Wednesday the actual move begins, and I’m planning on renting a big truck to move as much as I can in as few loads as possible. I’ll probably take some pictures to show you later.

To all our readers, and to all the people who have emailed me something that I haven’t replied to / published yet, I want to say thank you for your exceptional patience. Once I’m up and running in my new office, I’ll be pumping out new VC&G features like never before. That should be in a couple weeks at the most. I’ve got tons of cool stuff in the pipeline (including an account of my recent adventure to a local hamfest that resulted in some excellent finds), so stay tuned! Subscribe to VC&G articles via RSS and you’ll know automatically when we’re back in action.

Wish me luck on moving the mountain. If I get crushed under a PDP-11 in the process, don’t cry for me; at least I will have died moving something I loved. 😛

    Good Luck…

    Ooh, I want some 😛 ! How did you get all of that stuff, anyway? Where do you look for a good deal?

    I wish I had all that stuff :sigh: My parents made me donate a Performa 5670 (i think) with monitor, and another performa (not sure of model) with the CRT built-in. I really wanted to keep those, and now I’m kicking myself for not fighting harder. My dad also had a Mac SE/30, which he got rid of a long time ago, and I’m kicking him for it now, too.

    P.S. After the fact: I’m glad you didn’t get crushed 🙂 .

    I know how hard it is to throw things out and then wish you still had them later. 🙂 Fortunately (or unfortunately), I pretty much keep everything now…but I still have to clean house occasionally. It’s a blessing and a curse.

    Thanks to your comment, I think I’m going to post an entry on my collecting tips soon. In that entry, I’ll answer your question. Thanks for the comment!
