True but from the small snippet of conversation it didn't sound like he
was being threatened or oppressed.
Truthfully until we got a space where I could expand I used to encroach
on my wife's space all the time. SOs get cranky when that happens
because they react like _you_ are trying to control _them_ by reducing
_their_ space. So I guess I can understand the whole "can't park the
car thing". Which BTW is typical of our current situation. I have
junk, not just computer, stuffed in the garage.
Just in passing - what does anybody have to do to heat an unattached
garage to run systems in it? I'm just wondering because it might be a
little easier for us if I went and had a separate circuit run to the
garage and put all the "servers" out there.
Anybody doing this - in a "winter" state?
