Back from looking for aquarium air pumps, not the commercial stuff, so far the biggest I could find is the Rena 400, one suitable for a 125 gallon aquarium.

Aren't aquariums a bit expensive to get started?

Maybe it's for cooling his PC farm

I wouldn't think that a bubble machine would do well at blowing enough air to do much for a CPU. Unless the CPU was submerged in water...

...and the noise of them working would go "bubble bubble, toil and trouble".

Fire burn ...

Phew! We are painting various parts of our house and I have spent much of the afternoon and evening cleaning out and boxing up the contents of several closets. I discovered that something from Class Insecta ate one of my coats. I also discovered that we have accumulated a ridiculous amount of useless stuff in the decade or so that we have been in this house. My new mantra is "less is more". I am also utterly convinced at this point that it would just be easier to commit arson and start from scratch!

Oh and here's a pic of My aquarium, I got it off of ebay with a little help and some gas money, this was taken a few years back, it's 6' long x 1.5' depth x 2' height, the aquarium that is, the stand is a bit larger. The aquarium is now to the right of the TV.


The blue bags on the shelf on the right is some of the 100lbs+ of aquarium gravel that I have.

If it is still in the box a decade after you moved in, and you have not used it yet, donate it or trash it...

Sadly Firefox 10 doesn't (cannot upgrade that kitten as it's stuck on XP SP1 - long story). When FF10 tries to get the pics the result is "connection reset". So I went to my laptop (FF18) and I can now see your pics just fine. Thanks.

Nothing was still in boxes. It is just stuff we have accumulated since the move. In general, I'm a pretty organized person, but somehow stuff just crept up on me!

I now have two giant moving boxes packed for Goodwill and I am working on my third box. Less is more. Less is more. Less is more.
