The plans for the Saturday shevling consultation fell through, but luckily he was free Sunday afternoon. He Came over and I showed him the room and told him what I had in mind. He said it was all quite doable.

So if everything goes well next Wednesday we will be purchasing materials and starting to peice things together. We are going to line the entire back wall of the closet with adjustable shelving so that I can change the heights as my collection grows. There will be a solid, unadjustable board running along the top and bottom to give it a proper shelving look, but everything in the middle will be adjustable.

One of my concerns was the water shut off being along that wall, but he was come up with a suitable solution for that problem. We are going to build a box around it to keep it looking tidy and clean, but leave a small door with access to the shut off valve. This will take up some of the shevling space, but it only means I'll have to place large items in that particular area rather than rows of games.

Since we got done drawing and pricing everything out a little earlier than planned we had some time left over to play Contra, Sky Shark and Battletoads. A good afternoon!!

I'll try to draw up a rough outline of what I've got planned in Paint over the next few days just to give you an idea of what we will be doing next week.

Well we were able to get the moving truck a day earlier than expected. We wanted it for Sunday, but they are not open on Sunday so I grabbed my little brother to help and we picked up the truck Saturday at 11:30 and have it until early Monday morning. Yet we only have to pay for a one day rental which rocks!!

I was to eager to get moved in so instead of waiting for my wife to get off work and my dad to get home to help and a friend to get off work, my brother and I loaded and unloaded boxes all morning. My wife met up with us when we were just finishing up unloading our first full truckload at the new house. Shortly after that my dad got home and helped us load the heavier stuff (couches, dressers, etc.) onto the truck. We waited a little while (my first break all day, and I worked a graveyard shift the night before so I was tired). Hung out with my son for a bit, whom my mother had been taking care of all day so we could work on getting into the house.

My friend and father-in-law both came to help so we went and unloaded almost everything else. On Sunday we only have a very small amount of stuff left to move and then we can focus on painting/unpacking.

I've been playing around with Microsoft Paint for the last couple weeks and I think I know what I want to do with my game room paintwise. Im not very artistic, but I think I can handle what I have in mind with my skills (and maybe some help from my much more artistic wife). The only other room we are painting is my son's bedroom which has priority over my game room so I probably wont start painting the gameroom for a while yet.

Once I unpack my camera I'll take some snapshots of the game room in its current condition with all my games boxed up inside the room. I'll also try to take snap shots of any improvements I make to the room including painting, shelving, setup and any other adjustments I may make.

By the end of the year I should be able to get both the Dreamcast and Saturn to a solid ten titles, but right now I've only had very short experiences with the systems and not a lot of titles I would consider as "must have" titles. The Virtual Boy may even see a couple titles added if I'm lucky. Unfortanutely for the Xbox though it'll probably sit at a measley 3 titles unless something really surprises me.
