Re: [PLUG] OT: hw repo (was What to do w/ 3-yr-old outboard CD burner?)

It's the quantity that makes this problematic.  I've collected so much
debris over the years, I don't know where to start with listing it. This is
precisely why it hasn't found it's way on freecycle yet.  On the other hand,
when I see someone looking for something I have on freecycle, I offer it up.

Maybe we should schedule an annual (or more frequent) hardware swap meet.

Jonathan, why not just announce your pile of old junk on this list and ask
anyone wants to come get it?

Even though I preach, teach, and generally practice the fine art of "5S", I 
can't resist the siren's call of free computer junk.

Whatcha got you're trying to get rid of?   <only-half-facetious mode>When
I come get it? </only-half-facetious mode>
