Hate;
Making chassis/adapt projects to the chassis (mechanical work)
(I'm not lazy at all, and quite a "handy man" at home, but the above is just so booooooring, when I just want to make new circuits)

Love;
Prototype building/testing and making PCB layout

Pardon my poor english but, by "decide" you probably mean "choosing one between all these waiting projects"

1- Clean up,...I make seriouse mess when DIYing.
2- Trying to figure a good part lay out in my tube projects..This is allways difficult for me, because I have messed it up big time, & bieng new doesn't help, but I am catching on.!!!!!!!!!
I use hardwood chassis & build them with great care, so If I srew a layout up, it is dissapointing, chassis building is hard work , even with wood..

I love cleaning up the workbench, but I can't find anything afterwards

The mechanical work, especially metalwork. I don't know how to do it, and I don't have the tools. Wood is a little easier.

Finding a vendor that has ALL the parts so I can get it all with one order. And the other side, having to order parts you forget. That's why every one of my projects has Radio Shack parts in it somewhere.

Clever. So which is the bonus time? The time not used for hygiene, or the time his wife no longer wants him nearby?
