I couldn't agree more with your first question. Honestly the only answer I

The only classic computer stuff I've collected in the past several years was
a couple carloads that were mostly Commodore stuff. It helped out my Aunt
to dispose of stuff from someone she knew that died, and it gave me spares
as well as several items I've wanted since they were new.
I'm looking to dispose of stuff, not get more. Sadly I've found an
interesting roadblock to disposing of stuff, and that is finding free time
to dig stuff out and get rid of it. Like my money, my time is better spent
elsewhere, and it is spent on my family and my photography.
