Confessions of tech hoarders

How much hardware do you have hidden in your home's nooks and crannies?

What lurks within?

Trapped in the closet

Here's the top shelf of the closet in my home office, where the "stuff that gets used less often" (i.e., never) lives. Up there are some Ethernet cables, which you can obviously never have too many of, especially when you live in a house with Wi-Fi available throughout. Then there's the old landline phones (my wife and I stopped using our landline when we got iPhones, but we still have a dial tone for emergencies, and you never know when such an emergency will arise), and, of course, a USB cradle for a Handspring Visor and a 220V-to-110V power converter. (Don't forget these; they'll come up again later.)
