This is a question Hoarding

Willenium says: I had to bring some floppy disks into work which I had been saving for 10 years "in case I might need them". Tell us when your hoarding skills have come in useful (or not, as the case may be)

Fuck, yeah.
Every so often I have a clear-out of old boxen that have been dumped/donated. Last summer I ditched about a dozen old machines after making the decision to trash anything that was AMD XP32 or older.

I now have about six complete machines sat in the computer room, again stuff that has been dumped / donated, but is relatively modern kit and I wouldn't feel right about trashing it. Yet I don't have a use for it. Best option is if someone wants a cheap bollocksing-around machine and is prepared to offer a few pints for it.

N.b. Of the live systems I have hooked up to the network, there is the games rig (a Phenom-based machine), an Opteron-based server, a couple of Acer Aspire Revo 3700s set up as XBMC clients, a HP Core Duo machine for twatting around on BSD on, a Fujitsu laptop, and an Acer netbook. Apart from the cats, I live alone. I may have a problem.

Ninja'd. Yes, I also have a raspi on order.
