Storage of computer (done...)

I finally got a call through to the zoning person, actually a reasonable
human being. Apparently some "neighbor" filed a complaint that I was
running a resale computer business out of my house. I explained that this
was my hobby, and not operated for financial gain, which took some details,
but for now the case is closed. A letter or phone call will go back to the
complainer with my denial of business activity, and that is the end of it
unless they can somehow show proof of business operation.

Overall I still find the whole experience very chilling on the pleasurable
pursuit of a hobby. I have a bunch of stuff I am ready to get rid of, and
now I have to wonder if somebody is snooping on me ready to cause more
trouble if I sell something.

OTOH mentally it has me more focused on what part of this activity is fun,
buying neat stuff, fixing it, and helping fellow users. I really hate the
selling, shipping, generally business side of things.
