A view of my attic, where most of my stuff is kept.  This is shelf #1 of 2.  Someday, I'd like to be able to keep this stuff out for use, but no room at the present time.

Look how organized you are!

 

If I posted pics of my crap, someone would probably try to put me on hoarders!

Cool inventory, Rick!

It's good to keep things organized like this for quick set-ups when the retro gaming urge overcomes the day.

Organized?  I consider it more like real-life Tetris.

Actually, the cool original boxes give it that "Over here!" feeling that's sorely missing from my own random stashing of items in separate bags, unmarked crates and forgotten nooks.

Nice, Rick! Its important to stay organized. I've had to resort to underbed storage for most of my CIB games. I can get 50-60 CIB games in a bin depending on the system.

A view of the 2600 games...because I just bought another storage tub.  But mostly because I want to see Lee do this:  O.o

I'm just going to take pictures of systems as I take them out and use them...

 

Here's my C64 setup.  That little device to the left is an SD2IEC disk drive emulator.  Allows loading disk images off an SD cart.  It has a "fast load" bios built in...so a lot faster than a real disk drive.  Plus the cool case that makes it look like a 1541-II.
