Out With the Old

Music: Various Artists – Beach Sequence

Today was a proud day… I had a brilliant idea, a great plan, and it all came together by 3:15pm. In my efforts to pack for the move I’m needing/having to get rid of a lot of ‘junk’ that I’ve been saving, namely 6 old computers (the oldest dating back to 1994!), 2 color printers, 1 dotmatrix printer, and my first HP flatbed SCSI scanner. Took all the harddrives out, then went to the local edition of Craig’s List, posted an ad:

FREE: I’ve got 5 old computers and 5 old monitors that I need to get rid of. All are in working condition, although I’ve removed the hard drives.

Each computer ranges from a 486 to Pentium 2’s (maybe a P3, not sure). Some of the computers have additional NICs, Tuner cards, cd writers, etc. Great for someone learning about computers, or someone wanting to use them as routers, etc. If you want only one, you’re out of luck – the whole lot comes as a package deal – Its free. I’ve also got a flatbed scsi HP scanner, a couple of color inkjets, and a okidata microline printer that I’ll toss in too if you want them.
Please contact me immediately if you’re interested. I’m moving and HAVE to part with these quickly!

30 minutes later I got the first of several emails from people responding to the ad. 10 minutes later I had arranged who was the lucky ‘buyer’ and a time for the pick-up. Praise that site, I’ve neglected it since I moved back from San Francisco.
