I went in for a pneumonia vaccination a couple of days ago and that knocked me a bit off my game; the arm is stiff and I was moving slow, but I've perked up this evening.
An expansion card for the computer (more USB 3 ports) arrived so I need to again rearrange the stuff in my office so I can reach the back panel of the computer to install the card. It takes up two of the SATA slots for power so I may not be able to add much more (it will be connecting to external devices instead). More clutter on the desktop. :-/
Next week I'll see about taking unusable devices to the ewaste bin on campus; I have a bunch of batteries and old disks also. Today I was talking to a friend who is converting old computer disks and commented they needed access to a Commodore to do some of that work. I still have my father's old computer, but it hasn't been turned on in 23 years. Perhaps it's time to find someone who would like it and in return have them convert all of the disks into something usable on a modern machine. I happen to know such a geek. . . it would be nice to have it out of the house. And the huge CRT monitor that goes with it.
