So Lauren and I were talking last night about the junk I currently possess. One thing is clear - there will not likely be room for all the computers I own. Currently inventory is:
- P4 desktop running XP Pro (my main home PC)
- Mac Mini with all my home recording gear hooked up to it.
- Old G3 Mac running OS9 (awaiting CDs for OSX installation)
- P3 desktop running SUSE Linux 9.1
- Another P3 desktop running SUSE Linux 9.1 (my environment for learning PHP/testing PHP code)
- Homebuilt file server running XP Pro
- Toshiba widescreen laptop (rebuilt after a hard drive crash)
Then there are the parts. I've got an old rackmount case that was my next server project. I can probably sell it, but I have tons of other video cards, sound cards, modems, NIC cards and other crapola lying around in various states of build. If I had any sense, I'd throw most of this stuff out, but here's my problem with that: Immediately after I throw out a computer part, I alway have a need for it a couple days later, and end up going to CompUSA to pay good money for what I just threw out. I hate it when that happens.
Maybe I could build a few PCs and donate them to relatives who need to get e-mail and surf. Hmmm...
