A mid-30s he/him nerd. Husband, dad of 3, programmer, and guitarist. Concerned about the way humans are treated. In tune with that I'm very interested in and open/federated systems where humans, regardless of who or where they are, can participate. I also love of many types, (indie rock, funk, classic R&B, and modern bluegrass are some favorites) and random hobbies like home automation, 3d printers, SBCs, even some . Been on sdf almost 16y

So I'm preparing to take a load of stuff to the electronics recycling center on Saturday morning before VCF, and now I'm trying to remember:

- Why did I need so many narrow SCSI cables?
- Why did I have two bins of IEC power cables?
- How many PCI video cards does one man need?
- Why did I have so many dead hard drives? They don't even spin up.
- What on earth was I going to do with this many mono RCA cables?
- Was it a good idea, at the time, to hoard printer cables?

Just finished repairing the Navtel Datatest 2+ unit (which, according to the Ebay seller was fully working, but in reality wasn't).
Now I just need to run by Gateway Electronics and match the power supply up so that I can charge it and start using it.
