Speaking of which, I'm finally going to byte the bullet and take long
since administered advice from Frank McConnell to go this route. I

All my books and magazines and manuals and software are finally going up
on my nice bookshelves. Pictures forthcoming once the transformation has
reached a satisfactory stage for public exposure.
