This Boy’s Room

I have a boy’s room for the first time in a long time.
Not a little-boys’-room, you understand, a real boy’s room. It has my PC, my games, my books, my airfix models (yes), my toolbox (yes again) …

I spent the day sorting the room out and the evening, after little-girls-bed-time, sitting in my boy’s room building a PC from old bits I have. It has one of those keyboards that plugs into a big round multi-pin socket. No really. I’d forgotten those ever existed. It’s also got a bunch of drives and a whopping 64Mb of RAM. Now that’s not something you’d get hold of easily today. I’ve installed a version of Redhat from Back In The Day and will use it to archive stuff.

Way cool man.

Unemployment is all it’s cracked up to be.
