The Wife dripped soup on my damned gaming keyboard and put her frickin’ crusty soup mug on my bookshelf. She is such a slob.

Being in my study when I get home from work is a first class ticket to making me an angry drunken dwarf. I use that study to get away from it all.

It’s fundamental to us remaining together for the last 22 years!

I believe in the Middle Ages in certain areas of Russia it was permissible to boil your wife in a huge pot but it's never been allowed to fry them in a wok. Go figure. Wok's the difference?  :hide:

Just added another bookcase. It is my 'to-read' bookcase. There are about 75 books in it :/

Better in a case than scattered in piles around the room.

Jarhead - that corner design bookcase was interesting.  We have a similar design in the sun room with shelves going up 8 feet.

We hit "peak physical books" about 10 years ago.  Due to allergies, almost all paperbacks and book club edition books are gone.  Electronic books keep soaring.  And when I retired I tossed 90% of my work related books.

The set-up process continues...first set-up is for non-VR simming and second set-up is for VR action! Replacement 43" 4K LG monitor arriving tomorrow. Will be linked with second rig.





Airboy...can't imagine getting rid of my paper books. I'm just not a fan of electronic books. I like seeing titles on a shelf.

I hope I never develop an allergy to paper. That would be Twilight Zone levels of torture for me.

JH what percentage of your gaming is now VR?

It fluctuates often. At times...80-90%. Then, I might go awhile playing little to no VR, say 10-20%.
