ziploc day [Aug. 8th, 2004|03:42 pm]

Today's clean the house today because it's too hot outside.

I went on a short bike ride, accomplished my mission (five thousand ziploc bags), and quickly returned.

So now I'm putting all my small stuff in ziploc bags because the zip-tie plan from the other month wasn't thought out that well.

See, I have about five thousand small parts and cables in a bunch of bins. But without ziploc bags, they all get tangled up and impossible to search through.

RFID could be useful here. Tag the ziploc bags with RFID tags, linked with pictures which I could lazilly meta-data at will. Then when I want something I get out my RFID reader and search for the proper room and bin.

But I digress. Back to baggying.

I can just dump out the whole bin, spread it all around on the floor, find what I want, and scoop everything back in.

I now have my doubts about this whole grand scheme. If my experience with Lego is a good indicator, the "scoop everything back in" step only happens after someone else in the house steps on a piece in the dark.

(that one line brought back so many fun happy-fuzzy feelings... the obnoxious loud clatter of bricks in that hideous red plastic container, tumbling out onto the carpet like so many anti-personnel mines, or at least thumbtacks... god those things hurt to step on.)
