Holy cow, I wrote a book!
my old computer is up on bricks in the virtual front yard,
the scavenging has begun.
I got a piece of email from one of my colleagues saying,
"Say, you aren't using that PC-2100 memory any more are you?"
Why no, in fact, I wasn't. Christmas comes early.
(He offered to buy the memory off of me, but since I had already written
the old computer off as a loss, I just gave him the memory.
But even he didn't want the 256MB memory stick.)
I've still got a perfectly good Socket A 1GHz AMD Thunderbird,
a full-size ATX (not ATX1) case with power supply,
a modem (wow, remember those?), a network card, an AGP video card,
a small farm of CD and DVD drives...
I doubt anybody's going to want to scavenge those unless they're
just stocking up in anticipation of their own old computer going bad.
