  • NOOOOOOOOOOOO! (and also Bits Boxes)

    My Ronco Assorter took a tumble last night, almost every painstakingly separated form and factor of screw, pin and plug used in my general day to day 'putering cast upon the floor in an obscene, chaotic orgy.




    Apologies for the crappy pic but my hands were shaking with shock and suppressed rage.

    Still after a few hours it was all back together . What do you lot keep your bits in? or what was your last NOOOOOO! moment?



    and yes...that PC in the background is pink. It's a project. Honest.

    Actually have a food bag with every screw for PC in it.
    Couple of smaller bags within for some that I keep separate.

    All other PC tinkering bits together in a plastic tub and cables in an empty nappy box.

      Would that be one of those unspeakable many-tentacled horror kinds of boxes? *shudder*

        oh whoops
        I use the same thing, but x2 and a lot smaller (easier to handle when I have to take them out and about)

            I feel your pain (and only laughed a little, honest )

            Mine are in those draper mini draw storage cabinet thingies:



            The drawers can all tip out if the whole thing moves forward though, so they are leaning back slightly, and secured

                A quite understandable reaction. Looking at that pink case makes me want to throw things on the floor as well.

                So, when will you be COMING OUT with the details of your new project?

                    not quite that bad,, well actually yes. who am I kidding. THing is, most of the cables should just be binned as they will never be used but I just have to keep them... you never know...

                      Got one of those front-opening vertical bits boxes, where for some stupid reason all the doors have to open together. Hate the thing, and it has resulted in a few of 'those' moments.

                          Got a Woolworths 10 compartment organiser box with all the screws sorted into type and thread, along with standoffs and fan fixings (screws and rubber thingies) which lives in one of 2 Hiper Type R boxes along with various cables and accessories.

                          Still got a 580W Type R but my 530W expired a few years ago.
                          I am not losing weight! I'm getting rid of it. I have no intention of finding it again!
