been building systems for close to 15 years now and over the years i accumulated a serious amount of stockpile. being a builder, you never know when that one extra part might have helped you get the job done faster. i managed to save SOMETHING from just about every system i've ever built. well, in 15 years, ALOT has changed. most of my equipment can't even be used on today's systems so i finally pulled the plug and cleaned out my stockpile. i started with: bottom bin: software. discs, diskettes, manuals. i had original copies of 95, 95 plus, office 4.3 and 97... i even had Windows 1.1 with Word and MS Paintbrush on 5.25" floppies. all gone... next bin: stupid/useless game controllers, ps/2 and DIN keyboards, 5 PSUs and 3 motherboards still in their original boxes. next bin: the only organized bin, full of more bins containing little parts like drive cables, CD ROM audio cables, fans, random cables, etc., etc... top bin: JUNK with a capital J. audio cables, more keyboards, mice, power cables... time to purge. none of this **** is useful to anyone. check out this old-ass sound card. Sound Blaster 32. my first sound card ever. everything in those four bins here: so much crap, it tried to escape: after everything was done, this is what I left myself with: lots of useful parts that will be helpful for a few more years to come.
