Im pretty sure one shelf full alone would be worth more than your computer

Not by the boatload but I still have drives- I still rotate drives every few months or so to be safe. You need one now?

I liked the way all the DVDs looked on those older white shelves I used to have. Now they don't display as well but it looks cleaner. I have to stack them a lot to fill the one glass cabinet and that's just horror. I really try to not buy discs and just download everything but there are some cool covers out there or boxes that I want to display.

I could use a portable one, but I'm not going to put you through the trouble of it if you don't have a bunch of extras.

So, at 10 dollars each that's 2,400 for a minimum.

There's about 15,000 retail price of movies there?

You guys are too funny with the math. It makes me shudder~ I have, I think at last count, 3625 DVDs, 212 Blu-ray, and 25 HD DVDs. The rest of my movies are either HD mkvs and I have about 2600 of those and a ton of avi files- around 4000 of those. I download a lot, I rip a lot and I trade a lot so it adds up over time. Moving out of Comcast land into a CableOne area has helped tons. they don't cap/ throttle or limit you at all on what you download. The base package is 6MB down from 9am to midnight but then after midnight to before 9am it's wide open- I had up to 12MB coming down (5 machines running torrents at once) before I paid for the upgrade package that is supposed to start at 12MB down but I honestly have not seen any speed increase. Oh, and before you ask- my router has meters on it that show up/ down speeds and totals pulled for the day- week and month on it. Anywho- the sum of this post was yea.. I have lots of money and time in this collection but it's what I love doing. My comic collection is massive now too! I did however lose a lot of my eComics recently. I had about 400GB+ and lost both the original and copy drives in the same flood. That was tens of thousands of eComics and it made me sad.

I moved back home. Living in MS and working in NOLA. Funny how I get to work faster with a 70 mile drive one way here vs. the 28 mile one way drive in DC.
