    Four Tall Yarn Stuff Sacks in different colors (always have different colors! That way you can tell which sack is which!)

    Two Medium Yarn Stuff Sacks and Two Size Three Travel Stuff Sacks, each in different colors. The point here was to determine which kind of stuff sack works better in holding my power cords. Answer: Medium Yarn Stuff Sack by a long shot. Bigger opening.

    They even look pretty comfortable. Thanks for giving me a smile this morning.

      Two of those robots look ready for a potato sack race. The one with the Iberian sack on its head looks like my kind of robot.

        That's quite a lot of new Tom Bihn gear you have there! I'm guessing for more then one bag? Also what are the Robots? Do they have IP addresses on them? They look fun - love to learn more!

          Very clever! Do they clean house?
          The stockpile keeps growing...I'm in serious trouble.

              What a great picture row. If the robots where're in the title I would have scowled down in my usual slow way to appreciate all the colors and goodies. But even with the "waring" what to expect it was: WOW look at these fellows all comfortable in their sleeping-bags".

              But maybe you should have put No. 4 in the packing-cube. He seems to be overwhelmed with the sleeping-bag concept and might have been glad to have a see-through solution?!

                  There's one more item coming tonight (Medium Cafe Bag). Believe it or not, I just have the Brain Bag. Though TB is welcome to send me some bags for free to rectify the situation.

                  The robots are Darwin-OPs and compete in RoboCup. They have built-in linux boxes, and the IP addresses are their wireless addresses so we can connect to them via laptops.

                    Wow. I would be interested to see how all those things fit into a brain bag.

                    Yeah I saw the IP addresses on them - figured they had some sort of Linux running on them... I just looked up the price... Holy moly - looks like I'm not getting into the robots hobby quite yet. Is it a work related project? Super cool!

                      That's impressive! Lots of things to go in one bag.

                      I figured they must have some sort of OS on them based off the IP address sticker on them. I just looked them up - holy moly - I cannot afford to get into the Robot hobby quite yet! I'm not sure if I would Is it a work related thing?

                      Take care!

                        Little known fact: robot soccer is my favorite competitive sport. I never thought I'd see them in Packing Cubes and Stuff Sacks! Thanks for a truly delightful post, feijai.
                        Have a question? @Darcy (to make sure I see it)

                        Current carry: testing new potential materials in the form of Original Large Shop Bags.

                          University robotics research. We have 8 of them. Yes, they're $10K apiece. That ain't nothin': a full-sized humanoid robot, hand-built or purchased, would typically run about $500K.

                              Those are wonderful. The only robot I have is a Roomba. Actually I have 2. One is an older one and harder to clean and it couldn't keep up with our freaky weather and cat hair. The new one can. When I got the new one, I did a Roombaectomy on the other one to make it more efficient. Husband walked in and freaked out, thinking I could never get it back together. Fooled him and now I use that for the hardwood where kitty doesn't go as much.

                              Roomba actually encourages people to hack and sells parts to do so, which is one way they keep improving them. The thing is amazing how much it picks up and my allergies can attest to it. The only problem we have is that Miss Kitty knows how to turn it on, so it has to be in a different room whenever we leave the house.
