  1. That's a lot of interesting stuff, but I can see why you passed it up.

    I am seeing more and more printers, monitors, keyboards from the "early" days of personal computing in the thrift stores these days. What's going to happen to all that hardware -- landfill?

  2. Yes, Cameron: the landfills are full of obsolete information technology hardware. There are people who sift through the rubble looking for valuable materials -- or information still on hard drives.

    [By the way, notagain, I've got a keytop for you and will gladly accept your SC logo -- drop me a line to confirm.]

  3. Ech. It's kind of painful to witness this kind of "missing link" hardware that existed between retro writing machines and the current technology.


Let me know if capcha comes back. Thanks for commenting.
