Good Saturday evening, MetaFilter! This week, since we haven't done a picture one in a while, show us a picture of something new and different about your home during the pandemic! Do you have a makeshift home office? Do you have a mask storage station? Have you created a homeschooling hub for kids doing e-learning? Do you have food storage that could put a bunker to shame?

Filling in for Eyebrows, who has been busy with Best Post Contest tagging, I bring you a Metatalktail suggestion from mefite sharp pointy objects, who would love to see members' "links to a home listing of their dream home in their dream city (or area) and [explanation] why this is their dream home/area. I love looking at home listings and would love to see other people's opinions and get to know them better." [more inside]
Let's design our dream homes -- what special room or feature would you have, in your perfect house/boat/compound? (Money is no object; if you want, we're talking awesome volcano lair with a roller rink and waterslides and the whole deal.) [more inside]
I am looking for an AskMe post from the last three months or so, where the question was along the lines of "my realtor wants me to put together a list of what a new house absolutely must have, and what it must not have, in order for us to consider it. Please help us come up with such a list." Search as I might, for the life of me I cannot seem to find the post. Halp?
I remember reading a post here about a guy who had bought a house that turned out to have been flipped by someone incredibly shady, and the house was full of stuff like vents leading to nowhere, architectural details secretly supported with popsicle sticks, etc. He and his friends then documented the process of making the house livable. I'm having trouble finding it.

I'm looking into setting up a home network. Mostly I want to be able to access from multiple machines and as the secondary backup. I would like to eventually be able to tie into my home entertainment system. I've done a lot of reading but would like to hear what's working for others. I'm not familiar with Linux but am wondering if I should venture that way. I'm using Vista. Thanks. [more inside]
Just curious if anyone's ever had a MeFi meetup in their house. Either drinks or potluck or whatever. Yes, no? How'd it go? Stupid idea or dumb idea?
It'd be... nice... if the Preferences nav line was not bolded and the Home nav line was bolded. Also, no access keys?
