I hope this is a passing phase, and that at this point, at least in part, it's caused by my own frustration with things getting on top of me.
I'm also gradually throwing out more boxes of stuff - not nearly enough, but a lot. I'm reluctant to just ditch all these SCSI cables, but I have little use for them now. I wonder how much stuff I have to throw out before it makes an appreciable difference. One crate a day until then.
