The time of projects has begun...

This morning's task was the computer desk. My desktop computer has been nonfunctional for more than a couple of years. It was a Windows machine and it got so bogged down, as Windows machines do, that it became unusable. So the desk that it sits on became a dumping ground.



It's hard for me to convey to you with this single split image the shear volume of crap that had accumulated. Two trash bags full. I'm going to have to admit here that I am just as much of a pack rat as my husband. I had stacks of recovery disks for hardware I no longer own, and haven't owned for years. I had a copy of Windows 95 for crying out loud. All of that is gone now.

Once I got the hardware dug out, I reformatted the hard drive and installed Linux, Unbuntu 10.10.3, which seems to be working just fine. So that means the hardware is still good.

Tomorrow morning is my desk. That's a major project. I can't remember the last time I saw the surface of my desk.

I know what you mean I had to clean up my bedroom a few mounthes back for my new dressor and the sheer acumulation of stuff was ridiculous. Not to mention having to clean the living room for guests, the stuff you put aside for 'later' and just sits there will always haunt you. *grin*

I seem to be the queen of that.
