I blame it on working for a mobile phone shop over 20 years ago... that when it all started...

Ahh the days of just 4 simple mobile networks one2one (my first ever network), orange, BT Cellnet and Vodafone..

I think that's a very plausible explanation, @madasaf1sh, but you still need therapy. Spaced

I would agree with @Bambino on this @madasaf1sh rofl

Mind you, I think it could be OCD? (It sounds better than GAS whichever way you look at it...) yahoo

I think I can beat that list:

 

1 PC

2 monitors and 1 small screen

1 work laptop (connected to the above screens all used daily)

6 iPhones

2 Android phones

a couple of external hard drives and one external storage unit

2 active routers (4G and one powerline connected through the house)

1 mini amplifier

1 Nix color detector 

1 multimeter

1 usb microscope

1 usb powerpoint dongle

Numerous screwdrivers & Numerous pens, pencils in mugs

Soldering iron

2 Cameras

1 drum trigger

1 tablet

1 Raspberry Pi (model 3B I think) and a Pi Zero

2x Patchblocks synthesisers 

2 staplers one of which is staple-less which as about awesome as it gets in paper attaching.

A couple more mini-amps powered by USB powerbanks

A scientific calculator

A video camera

And as I'm testing a few thing out for another project, a load of CAT5 keystones and Audio Baluns. Just got a couple of video capture cards to play about with this morning as well. 

Oh and a labelling machine and a magnifying glass. Yet there is still space on my desk joy

 

Around my office, I have even more gadgets and bits - I also have a small cupboard and shelf unit with even more things that I've forgotten I've bought (mainly electronic components and oddly Raspberry Pi's) for projects I'm slowly finishing. 

 

Saying that, I also have a severe case of CCD: Cable Collecting Disorder. There's two 42 litre storage boxes of them!
