Organizing the basement this morning, I found some things I hadn't seen in a while:
9 DC Power adaptors
175 floppy discs
8 pairs of headphones/earbuds
3 Texas Instrument calculators
6 pairs of eyeglasses
10 sets of audio cables with sundry ends
I binned a lot of trash and got the rest sorted into storage boxes, but there is much left to do. A "kitchen" area needs to be created. A lot of old plastic and glass-wares need to disappear. I need a workspace down there for hardware and tools. But most of all, I need to get out from under fifty years of accumulation. You know that stuff you're keeping for some day? You're never going to use it. Basically you're saving it for the time you can tell your neighbor, "wait a minute, I think I've got one of those."
Anybody need a parallel printer cable?
