I'm almost there -- I still own the building I ran a gallery for
contemporary art from for about ten years. I closed the gallery a
couple years ago to spend more time on my other work (physics), but I
now use the former gallery's back rooms, where I once stored my
inventory of paintings and sculpture, to house my current collection
of old computers.

Classic computers, especially if opened to display their inner
workings, could make a rather stunning exhibition -- far more
interesting than a lot of contemporary art. :-)
