LOL... How about matching things up? A Glock for my iMac, an NAA Mini
Revolver for my Palm(human or computer! :P), an AR-15 for my
PDP-11/84, a broken Mosin-Nagant for my unused Series/1...

OK, there is one problem with the car thing. Old Volkswagens don't
carry racks very well! Smaller stuff fits into my Bug OK, but you
really need a large van to move the big stuff. On the plus side, my
VW does great in this horrible winter weather! We have snow drifts
covered in ice right now, some drifts as deep as 2 feet, but for the
most part we only got 6-8" in this last storm. It's the freezing rain
that gets it! I have to stop every 5 miles or so to scrape off the
windows so I can see where I'm going.
