I took a break from nerd stuff for a day to clean out some closet space. We've got two pretty good sized closets in the room that we use for an office here, but for the last two years, they've just been crammed full of (mostly my) crap. So, I went to the local superstore and bought some plastic bin-type containers, and spent the day pulling stuff out and sorting stuff and packing it away in a more orderly fashion. I've also got about a cubic yard full of junk to throw away, including the husks of three or so busted old computers that I've been carting around for way too long. Now I just need to find a dumpster somewhere to toss it all.
Anyway, the upshot is, when I finish up tomorrow, we'll have all sorts of new space to store all sorts of new crap in. Along the way, I've uncovered a few cool things that I'd forgotten about. I actually came across my first Palm Pilot, from like 1998 or so - I popped a couple of fresh batteries in, and it started up just like the day I bought it. I want more stuff that works like that. I also found a big stack of random old trading cards, including fifty or so KISS trading cards. They are awesome. I decided that I would print up some stickers and stick them on the back of the cards to use for business cards for the cool kids. I would normally slack on something like this, but I couldn't sleep, so I threw this together:
