This is a question Hoarding

Willenium says: I had to bring some floppy disks into work which I had been saving for 10 years "in case I might need them". Tell us when your hoarding skills have come in useful (or not, as the case may be)

Everything that I own...
Since I split up with the soon-to-be-ex MrsMnG, I've been living with Mum and Dad. It was a fairly amicable, if one-sided, split, so I came away with my clothes, my books, CDs and DVDs, and my dying laptop. Oh, and a chest of drawers for my clothes. And a plastic crate full of tangled computer/AV leads. How can you be geeky without a plastic crate of tangled, possibly obsolescent leads?

These went in the attic, while I sorted myself out with some shelves and stuff. They're still there, apart from the DVDs. Beer, diesel for the Magnet*, Travelodge rooms for visiting the new MsMnG and presents for the little MissMnGs all seem to take priority over flat-pack cuboids, for some reason.

* My Ford Fusion**, so called because the last 3 letters are FNE.
** The car for the man with nothing to compensate for. Um.

Length? Too many people know about length, in my opinion...

You want crates of cables?
We have several of them. I was going to throw them out, but now I know I couldn't call myself a geek without one, I'd better keep at least one in the attic.
