Pictures recovered with help from Matthew Randolph.
A year ago: Here's what one end of the spare room used to look like, facing the closet. In 1996-1997, I had used this room as a home office; in mid-1997, I went to work for a company with a building in the same time zone, and started commuting instead of telecommuniting. This room inexorably turned into a "dead storage" room. This picture was taken on a day when the floor was tidied up enough to be able to vacuum in here. The work table has my laptop and you can also see my test unit in the case on top of the fridge on the right. But the table has already started accumulating stuff, including a lamp fixture of the same type I installed in here and in the living room.

Where we stored everything from the living room, dining room, and kitchen: Spare room is packed full of stuff. Facing the closet. In the first shot, you can see that I keep my teddy bear ears over the door. In the second shot you can see two primer-white flamingos and a ceramic bunny rabbit, which I believe I received on the occasion of my first Easter.

These are some of the bookcases in the spare room. In the first picture you can see three bookcases with books and compact discs. and the science fiction/fantasy books have been stacked roughly in order as they were arranged on the shelves originally. In the second picture you can see the phone jack high on the wall. This was my idea - when Debbie moved out, I had a whole bunch of 2-line phone jacks installed in all of the house, and I thought it would be more convenient to have them high. (I've learned better since then. A low phone jack is just as convenient for everything but a wall-mounted location, and less conspicuous when used for anything but wall mounting.) Oddly enough, one of Debbie's scruples carried through, because (at the time) she didn't hold with having phones in the living room. So I didn't have a jack installed in the living room. It's just as well, because if I'd had one installed high on a living room wall I'd really regret it now.
The bookcases are too tall to go back through the spare room door, now that there's carpet to get over. So I'm bringing them out through the back of the house, and back in via the living room sliding glass door.
