Regarding question 1: a good way to estimate the size of your collection, is to construct a list of all sets you own and enter it at Peeron. This will enable you to see the number of parts, minifigs, the MISB price you may have paid, etc. Another cool feature is, that it answers the question `given the pieces I own, can I build this set?’
By the way, if you’re already a Lugnet member, you can download the list you constructed there automatically!
*sigh* I’d better get started digging up instructions and entering set numbers…

In answer to the questions posed:
1. Since I couldn’t compete when folks were bragging about their computers a few months back I figured I’d get in on this thread. I snapped off a couple of pictures of most of my collection:
In addition to the LEGO represented in these pics I also have four of the huge Rubbermaid tubs (20 gallons?) in the attic with sets I haven’t had a chance to open yet.
A while back I created an Access database for tracking my collection but got bored with it and gave up on it early last year. At that point I had cataloged over 500 sets with a piece count of over 100,000. That didn’t include BrickLink purchases or other sacks of used bricks that were either given to me or found at thrift stores, etc.
2. I’m not aware of any females around here. I guess there could be some 40-something spinsters pretending to be naive, young adolescent boys lurking around. Isn’t that the way it happens on the Web?
3. From what I remember, it was Kevin’s employer who was donating the server space and bandwidth for BrickShelf. I don’t know if this is still the case or not. But like Jared said I had thought it would/should have become a pay service by now. Regardless, I remain thankful for the service and resource.May 7, 2003 at 7:55 pm #2462

1: One bin that’s 12 inches long 8 inches wide and 8 inches tall. How tiny
Then I have a HUGE Rubbermade tub filled with bulit sets (which are too precious to disassemble :roll)
2: Brick Witch and, uh… Is she it? I’d like to see a movie from a female director!
3: I have no idea. But it’s so great there is a free place to put MOCs.May 8, 2003 at 2:10 am #2495

Sets you haven’t had a chance to open!!?!??
My collection fits into a box just over a cubic foot. I can see I have some catching up to do.
