So the collection is pretty much packed up with only the Botcon shit and the recent little guys needing to be binned up.
The biggest concern I have is the fact that all the real life important work I've done the past 18 months meant that the crack became a very low priority. (And that's the way it should be.)
But... I'm realizing that if I hadn't split this site off of my other site and done the stupid "minimum 1 picture per figure" I would have absolutely no f'n idea what the hell I own.
My spreadsheet stops somewhere around Cybertron Breakdown GTS back in August of 2006.
That was when I hit 1665. I'm at 1966 now so there are really about 300 figures that I only know I bought because of this damn blog and my photo,
Hopefully, when I buy the House of Love IV I'll have some geek time to pull each figure out, document what I want to pitch, and do the proper data collection I stopped doing last year.
An accurate data repository is the life blood of everything including stupid toy collections. My inner anthropologist screams at me to resolve this data gap but the practical side of me has pretty much won out.
When I have time I'm going to continue working on the database architecture of a toy asset management system that I've envisioned. I'll be building the first version in OpenOffice Base and it'll be pretty TF-centric. That'll solve my immediate need.
I'm then hoping to try to actually collaborate with Giga on a web-based/SQL-driven toy asset management product that other people can use to track their shit. Who knows, it might even become a reality.
There's gotta be a lot of the Geekae out there that need a solid but simple tool to track their wastes of money.
Plus, I have absolutely no intention of buying a new house that requires the back breaking repair work that I've done on this one.
I'll need a project of some kind to keep me busy.
Picking up Hoont poop doesn't cut it.
