Life is complicated enough without getting into hotwater with federal agencies so: TAKE NOTE Many things I review I got at no charge in exchange for an honest review. Consider this as informing you that ALL things I review may have been gotten at no charge. Realistically about 60% but in order to keep things above board just assume that I got the stuff free. Words like, “sponsored,” “promotion,” “paid ad” or even just “ad” are clear ways to disclose that you’re being paid to share information and links so BE AWARE that some of what I write can be described as an AD by the government. BTW I will NEVER say a product is great, super or even acceptable if it isn't whether I got it free or NOT!

What’s in your wallet, basement,garage?
An article in Wired magazine entitled “Waste Management” hit too close to home the other day. A daughter was writing about the enormous collection of computers and related paraphernalia that her father collected. She and her brothers had to help him divest himself of the collection when his building was sold and he had to move. Sadly I see my self in this tawdry little tale. Admittedly I have little or not use for a multi node network at home. I was able to reluctantly get rid of my 25ppm, multi-tray, networked Lexmark laser. Like I really print that much. I am attempting to divest my self of other workable items. Craig’s List and Free Cycle have helped there. My hobby of recycling Pentium 3’s for the computer less is floundering at the moment due to a lack of operating systems. Thus my garage does look like a recycling center. Growing up in a home where you fixed things, you didn’t trash them, makes it difficult to junk workable stuff. I guess this should be titled the confessions of a computer-holic. However, I will again make a plea for some unused, legitimate operating systems to perhaps I can get my garage cleaned out and not have to resort to trashing (GASP) good computer stuff.
