    I don't really do anything for earthquake prep and like some of you I am in California earthquake zone. Most of my desk surfaces are mounted right to the wall via brackets screwed into the studs. My shelving is also bracketed to the studs and heavy duty. Of course the stuff could come flying off but if it is that big I am going to have bigger problems.

    Fortunately, I have been able to slim down the collection this week by 2 iMac G3s, 2 17" CRTs (Apple) a few Commodore things and a few Power Macs and Performas. Still a little ways to go before I find the sweet spot.

    Not to digress, but I got one of those about 4 months ago, went outside to mount it, and it turns out the way my pipes are the device won't fit (where it goes would be blocked).. So it's now a project to figure out how/if I can cut the thing down and get creative.

    Also in So Cal... Funny how many socal folks are here, but yet there seem to be no Retro computer groups of any type (and retro computers themselves seem to be hard to track down).

    Congrats on trimming down, I have to do so myself. I have a few items, including a huge ass Dot Matrix printer that I need to part with soon in order to clear up space. My shelving is also on studs and wall mounted, especially in the garage, but that won't stop it from flying off the shelves in the next earthquake which is likely coming soon given the time its been since the last one.
