Uncluttering the collection

Wednesday, July 4th, 2007 at 8:21 pm

Last night del.icio.us/popular led me to My War on Clutter on 43 Folders. This in turn led me to Unclutterer and a number of other sites about organising your stuff.

I have been inspired.

Earlier in the year I asked “Why do I collect computers?“, but I have yet to really do anything about thinning out the collection.

Today I made a resolution:

By the end of this weekend (July 7/8 2007) I will have:

  1. taken new photos of my IBM PC, IBM PC XT and related parts;
  2. added the photos and descriptions to the collection; and
  3. listed it all on eBay.

These two items are big and bulky and by getting rid of them I can free up a significant amount of space. Furthermore, I don’t know if these items even work. Since I don’t really have an interest in them I hope someone else does. This isn’t without precedent as I did the same thing with the Personal Iris, DECstation 2100 and DECstation 5000.
