You would think that it would be a bit tidier. Looks a bit OCD to me. Maybe he sleeps under the boxes

IS it airey36?
It's sad to see it in such a messy state. Makes it feel like a dump.

If he tidied up the place, it might only take half as much space or even less. Perhaps he wants it to look as chaotic as possible?

Edit: And from my experience with getting stuff from Airey36, he seems to keep his stuff in a shed or garage since it often has leaves etc. in it..

It reminds me of a TV program in the UK, "Life of Grime". There was a guy who filled his house with bin bags and scrap. He had to climb over rubbish to get in the house and tunelled through them to move around the house. Mr Treavis was his name.

Off-topic here, but I thought you Brits spell program the French way (ie: with an "me" at the end) when you are talking TV shows. Or were you born outside the UK?

When I see this I can only assume it's someone who buys stuff cheap and dumps it in there before he marks it up and shifts it, before he eventually reacquires the same piece and marks it up further. It certainly doesn't look like someone with a genuine interest in Amiga.

Off-topic answer...

It depends on the use!

For example, television programme and computer program.

Generally speaking, it is 'programme'. That includes cases like a concert guide or schedule. The computer-related variant is the exception to the rule.

Program could also be used as a verb. When writing code, you would 'program a computer'. In the past tense, you would have programmed a computer!

My teacher corrected me in primary school that it is also a computer programme.. I had used the American spelling in my school work. (I was living in England at the time). So which is it? Have I been living a lie? :-D
