Nice post, but not everyone is in to old 
computers for future potential 
investment value.  The thought never 
even occurred to me when I was acquiring 
the machines I have, I don't care what 
their value is or becomes, and the sight 
of hoarders doing so to hit upon some 
jackpot kind sickens my stomach.  I just

The fact that a friggin' *movie* raises 
the value of something, also really irks 
me.  How did movies ever become the 
be-all, end-all?

I'm sure others are irked as well by the 
intrusions of greed or irrationality 
into what can otherwise be a pure, 
unadulterated, hobby.  Isn't it funny 
that the word "adult" is used in 
"adulterated" -- as if the notion of 
adulthood renders things impure.  Well, 
in this case, certain forms of adulthood 
do due render this hobby impure.
