    So after Scomo didn't allow me to come back home for nearly 3 years, I finally made it home to Narrabeen today.. only for a short stay, but stoked non the less..

    And then had to laugh after my mum showed me the Horde if stuff she had been staking for me while I've been away.

    Quick dirty pic, and if you spot your parcels in there, then at least you know now why I haven't responded with having recieved them.. lol..

    Welcome back, Vanne! I didn't know you were on your way to Oz. The big questions are what else did you bring back to add to the horde and what are you taking back with you?

    Hoard. And that isn't a hoard, it's a pile of perfectly stacked boxes which is mostly tech.

    It could be better described as a barn find than a hoard (a bunch of stuff forgotten about that's been rediscovered).
    It would be best described as a collection of tech with a couple of car bits that got improperly sorted.

    The fact YOU took a photo of it, and not someone else in an attempt to shame you into cleaning up your filthy living conditions says you aren't a hoarder.

    Unless there's some napkins and news papers and old paid utility bills and drinking straws and a random bit of Lego hidden in among the boxes we can't see. and even then that makes the people collecting and storing it for you hoarders, not you... And yeah, Pierre32 is right. I would watch a whole video of that lot being unboxed over 2 hours!

    Or a live blog as you open each item make a new post of what it is. Maybe with a picture if you had the time. :lol:

    Lolol.. yeah not sure I have the time.. as it is, got stuck in ripping through stuff.. next on the find menu was this little box, all the way from Gilroy, CA.

    It's forgettable, but still pretty stoked it showed up.

    Then we're 2 parcels, identically matched, however the insides didn't..

    Followed ofcourse by the obligatory 3dfx voodoo2 card. Never used, but missing its box.

    1642929103054520721245999681583.jpg

    And then a bunch of boxes that contained this stuff...

    16429292243678402584631714542766.jpg

    And another few boxes contained these..

    That's a lot of Playstations. Bordering on a hoard of PS1's there.
    are the model numbers different?
    If they're all the same model I'll grant you a hoarding label for them.
    If they're slightly different (be it model numbers, mods, regions or for parts) I'll give you a collection badge.

    I shipped you an Athlon board about 14-15 months ago - and when you said "oh it'll be a while till I get to it".. I figured it'd just be a few weeks lmao.
