Nov. 13th, 2011 @ 09:02 am Still Working on Shelves....
But I did find both the back wall of the garage and the floor!

I'm going to continue running the top two rows of shelves all around the garage since it has close to an eleven feet tall ceiling, and I guestimate that will give me four or five hundred sf of storage space while still letting me get to the tool boxes and portable workbench I found tucked in one corner as Alex and I hacked our way through the jungle of stuff that had just been piled on top of more stuff LOL.

Since the garage she rock wasn't meant to get finished, I just needed the main house done to get my final inspection and be allowed to live in it, some of this stuff is boxes from a couple moves again or stuff from when we tore a building down on my farm after the copper thieves got me, that was actually stuff from mt last shop 20 years ago and I swear I am not a hoarder! I just have trouble throwing good stuff away but we made four trips to the dump so far plus a couple loads of computer parts I am giving to one of my tenents that likes to tinker. It's all old stuff from before I had the wreck and I'm not gonna ever use it but he can learn to build computers with it and that's how you learn.

Better he blows up a few boards that were free than spending money on good parts, at least at his stage of being a geek, but I said if he helped sort through everything in the computer room I'd let him have all the stuff I wasn't gonna keep which isn't much except my old shuttles, a complete Apple II, and on of those suit case computers fully functioning on 3.1 LOL. If they weren't such good tenents I'd worry I might reinheret this stuff but they've been there for years and keep the entire 2 acre yard clean and seem content to stay.




Almost There!

Suitcase/Briefcase Computer

I have been thinking long and hard about building a computer in a pelican (waterproof, shock resistant) case. The military beat me to it but all of theirs are dedicated systems, not fully operational computers. I have seen a lot of the older ones developed as precursors to laptops (always wondered about cooling). I am amazed about your garage, I dont know what your garage was like but I have not seen the floor in my parents garage in 15 years (fortunately not a problem I have to worry about anymore).

It was packed to the doors!

Thats the wifes garage up front and smaller than the one below me.

I owned an autobody shop for half my life so the downstairs garage is three and a half cars wide, and twenty seven feet deep with a seperate wood shop and what will eventually be about a 500 sf efficiency apartment when I'm old and need to supplement my income, and until then will be an emergency bedroom to sleep through hurricanes. Even though I live in Florida, the bottom garage is under ground on three sides with foot thick concrete walls cause I built into a hill side.

I'd love to have one of the water proof notebooks even the cable guys seem to have them these days...

I just looked at the new Panisonic Toughbooks and they run from between $4000 and $8000 for their waterproof (as in take it swimming) models. They are even better now that high capacity solid state drives are getting cheaper.
