Wait what i have a blog?!?!?!

Some things i have mentioned quite a bit recently:
1. I have not been very active for the last year essentially in any capacity.
2. a. This was due in part to work.
2. b. This was due even more so because of a year long competition run by some great guys over at Trueachievements.com. If people are interested let me know i will(to the best of my abilities) write up a blog detailing how it worked and blah blah blah none of you care about achievements.
3. My collection list on the site is extremely out of date.
4. I have started catching up on the Collectorcast.

Since i am again laid off and finally eliminated from my competition i get to flood the boards with my nonsense, get some site work done and hopefully learn some new things and maybe JUST maybe be able to impart some knowledge to others. There isn't much left in my head that is relevant though... so we will see.

Having been listening to the podcast (and being totally burned out on gaming... for the moment) i couldn't help but feel bad for neglecting all of my obligations as a collector. I am hoping to get back into the swing of collecting the things no one wants and then maybe really taking the plunge and buying stuff worth owning again.

Anyways... the point of this was for me to jot down my "current" collection stats. Which i lazily copy pasted (feel free to scroll for a bit TEXT FLOOD) :

All of those stats are so i can cross reference when i get everything up to date to see what has really spiked and what has plummeted.

I am figuring the whole process will take me 1-2 weeks. Most of which will be related to me trying to figure out where to stack things while i dig back in the closet to pull out more things.

(I promise to make an new phototbucket or remember the password to one of my old ones so people can stop clicking links to SkyDrive)
The closet is ~4 feet deep maybe a little over 8ft high and terribly nonuniform 2ft across and stuffed so full i can't actually close the door. In addition to:

Plus another closet full at my parents house which i am afraid will just be full of things i will have to throw away from moisture damage at this point Cry

Wish me luck. Thanks for scrolling and if you are not familiar with my presence on the boards you will be over the coming weeks Smiley
