Managing my electronic clutter

Over the years, I’ve accumulated a lot of electronic stuff, and now my closet is just packed! For the past couple week I’ve been working on it, though. First to go was a box of electronic parts and cables received from a friend, I just gave it back to him. On Wednesday, two of my old laptops found new homes.

My very first laptop was just collecting dust, and I hadn’t turned it on for a couple years. Purchased back in 1996, it was a Pentium 100, 24mb RAM, and a 512mb hard disk from AST. It was basically useless, so I put it up for grabs on Freecycle. BTW, I have found Freecycle to be an excellent way to get rid of things you don’t want anymore, and highly recommend it. There are Freecycle groups all over the world!

The second computer was an older Dell Latitude (Pentium II 400mhz, 256mb RAM, 10gb hard disk) I had bought used for my wife to use. The computer was in good shape, but had a burnt out USB port caused by a bad power adapter. I was able to sell it on Craigslist for a decent price.

Going up for sale next will be a couple of pieces from an old stereo system. I’m getting rid of all this stuff for two reasons: 1) I want to clean out my closet 2) I’m saving up for a Nintendo DS Lite!

    Man, I want a DS Lite too … Games plus Japanese dictionary equals just what I could use.

    No doubt! It’s funny you mention the Japanese dictionary, because the DS kanji learning software and the dictionary are kind of what made my decision. I’ll probably be ordering a few titles soon, so they arrive by the time I buy my DS.

    I wanted a DS before I knew about that software, but since learning about it and seeing it in action, I now know: I must have a DS. 😉 And when I’m done looking words in the dictionary, I’ll play some “Mario Kart DS” online. Ohhh yeah.
