All your old tech gear pics are inspiring for me. In that, my wife (also named Kari) would love for me to do exactly what you are doing, and get rid of stuff...I have a lot of old tech. I'm trying clean out, but need to try harder.
On a side note, if you know anybody in the DeMo area that wants an old SGI 1600SW monitor in great condition, I have all the parts, original box, plus the add-on Multilink Adapter. I'm taking serious offers (can't give this baby away).
Does Best Buy charge for any of that recycling? Sounds like trip I might be making soon. Thanks! :)
