ugh. something possessed me today to go through all my milk crates of old power adapters & cables. speaker wire, rca cables, power adapters for nokia phones, for motorola phones. old routers. ugh. i’ve always been a guy who likes cleaning house, likes throwing away stuff to make room for the new, but this is hard.
getting rid of my original palm pilot sync cable — that’s a pretty easy call, really. but my external apple scsi connector? what if someone comes over with a powerbook duo and an external dock for it, and then wants to connect an external scsi drive? what the heck would i do if i just tossed that cable? i’d be in dire straits, that’s what. nonetheless, i think i may part ways with it.
i go in fits like this every year or two — cleaning up stuff that i shouldn’t have anymore, selling some stuff on ebay. just now i’m trying to get my old dell laptop up & running, buti seem to have misplaced the hard drive connector. i’m sure i used it for something really useful, like prying open some other device i have. wonder where it is…
update: crap, dad says he threw away his external scsi cables a couple of weeks ago, so maybe i should keep mine, you know…just in case. i was sorta counting on him. and…when in the world did i use all these damn ethernet cables? thank god for WiFi.
