mostly made a decision as to how i want to do it.

i split the storage section up into its 6 component parts, and i'll either cram the 6th next to the other 5 if that works with the books in the other set of shelves, or move it next to the pantry. i'll also buy either 1 or 2 more to get more storage for yarn and fabrics.

the bed will be a bit more of a pain to create in that place because of the previously mentioned add-to-mattress shenanigans, and it won't be quite as wide as a full-size (but wider than a twin), but i think that's ok. i might also not make it this long; i think i will build a mockup before deciding for sure -- this version measures 96" and that's rather more extra space for books and stuff at the head than i really need.

this arrangement gives me:

- bed right by the window, which i like for the fresh air.
- view from bed out the window at the most interesting angle (most of it is hedge, but at this angle i can see the roof of the neighbour's barn and a bit more sky).
- a little cave for sitting at the desk and doing computer work (mmmh, cave)
- a nice corner for my reading and knitting papasan chair which is now shunted off to the shed, poor thing.
- lots of clear floorspace for that dance mat setup i am thinking of building.
- a lot of contiguous desk space at which i can work sitting or standing (the trestles are adjustable), which is great for various crafting activities.

the large question mark will be decided later. i'll probably put in shelves, and the TV cart can roll right into that space for video gaming with the dance mat, or for watching movies from the papasan chair.

This looks good to me. Have fun implementing and fine-tuning it. And let me know how you go with the dance mat once you get that far.

Since you've moved the desk, it looks like you could make the bed a little wider to avoid the mattress issue.

What kind of dance mat setup?

the limit for the bed width isn't the desk, but the window. and i am not moving that. :) (which isn't as impossible as it would be in any normal rented dwelling; this is a shack however, and every bit of construction shows it; i can't possibly make it worse).

i want to build a solid underpinning (plywood, shock-absorber, clear cover) for one of those flimsy dance mats that one uses to play dancing games -- like this one.

Even I didn't know, Da Shadow Nose.

But just remember that you can't have anything solid around the edges of the room, in case you EP into rock. :-)

I saw a claim in your description that you never gamed. I almost spit my supper at the screen.

Who else would say that? Who else has a rott head surrounded with "Life's Short. Bite Hard." tattooed on one shoulder, and a shark with blood trail surrounded by his Bar admission dates on the other? :-)

And I still have a lot of 999 chars, 2 of which are 999 in two guilds. But ING.

Yeah, especially if one has their own group. :-) I'll send you some pics from work Sunday night when I get back to work so you can see the current version.

Good Lord. I google myself just for grins and trip over the Doog AND gtg? This is way too weird, even by "grafitti" standards.

Pretty damn good, overall. Left CCC in '97 for a network-admin/managerial gig, left that a few months ago in search of a business culture that doesn't remind me of the Stalinist regime. Still living just north of Chicago, and now share a life with a beautiful bride, a teenage art major, and a lazy Rott named Bowser.

Dunno if you've heard of Cyber1 (www.cyber1.org), which is a CYBIS system running on a Cyber emulator. A bunch of CERL people hang out there, and it appears to be a fine place for one who never games :-). Just ain't the same, though; "pad" goes for days without being written in.

leaving stalinist regime jobs sounds like an excellent thing, as does the happy homelife!

i've gotta check out that cybis thing (a cyber emulator. oh ghod. that's beautiful.) -- there are a few old platoites hanging around here though my memory is fuzzy enough to not remember which ones you might know: phil parker, david gehrig, erik wessing, dave librik, blur (did i ever know his actual name? i don't recall), brad woodcock are the ones i have collected so far (i hear there is a whole set!).

me, i've been living in canada for the last 10 years, running our own company with my partner (http://gooroos.com), being adopted by more and more feral cats (6 at last count; this has got to stop, or i'll end up like one of those people you read about, where the cats have started to eat the corpse before anyone notices the person has died). it's a good life so far, not being dead yet :).

Ego-googling? Lord. BLuR = Brian Louis(?) Rogers; proximity effect = yucky brown bananas. Glad to see Mr. Piven has adopted a rottweiler, as they are very fine dogs, even without PtP to chew on. I even have that parady of an "AID(S)" writeup on the "phil" command somewhere still. I didn't know this string had reactivated.

The open space looks marvelous, and the cave corner is definitely looking like a potential cauldron of intelligence and inspiration. 8^)
