At some point today, all of the computers (and cams) will be down for an undetermined amount of time.
I’ve got the spring cleaning bug and now that I have my desk back, it’s time to do a little rearranging and in doing so, open up the room. What I once considered cozy, has become close and cluttered. There are an unknown number of cables behind the power strip that are no longer in use. What once held my printers is now storing paper, which could just as easily be stored in the closet. The two oak file cabinets that I’ve not used in years, can be divested of their contents, to be stored in the attic in the shop and the two free standing files can be cleaned out and moved to the dumpster in front of the house.
Brian will be gone a good amount of this weekend, so I can concentrate on getting this done.
Last Thursday we went to Home Depot and looked at new blinds for the window in here. The old ones had a cord on them, the cord had frayed so much that I couldn’t open or close them, so they stayed closed, although the slats could be rotated to block or allow light. I picked out some nice blinds, Brian bought them yesterday and he put them up this morning.
I’ve done some measuring, ordered some more RCA cables on eBay (so that I can connect the television, dvd player and vcr to the stereo in the back corner) and now I’m off to Wal-Mart to get a longer coax cable so that I can run that under the desk to the television.
I’m going to move Brian’s computer from the middle of the desk (since Brian is in the glass business, when he set up the office, our desks are actually thick plates of tempered glass on three sides of the room, half of two walls and all of the third) to the corner, and I’d like to move the FAX machine back to the middle. Since there’s no reason to have the kitty’s water fountain up here any longer, I’m going to move that and see how much extra room I can get there.
And I’m going to tear my computers down and set them back up, peripheral by peripheral. That’s going to take some time.
So, if you’re wondering what’s going on, there you have it.
