Computer recycling and the Maker Faire

| No Comments


After breakfast on Sunday, Bill and I went to the Maker Faire at the San Mateo Fairgrounds. It was difficult to explain to him just what the Maker Faire was, but he agreed to go - and I think he enjoyed some of the displays. We are both utilitarian so quite a few of the displays didn't grab our attention. I kept reminding myself that the fair featured "people who make things just because they can." I was especially fascinated by the Redneck Pool Heater.

We also recycled (and got a receipt for 2006 tax purposes!) most of the outdated computer equipment that had been hidden away (out of sight, out of mind) in a few closets. The ACCRC was at the faire taking electronics equipment for free. Gone now are: my old August 1997 Windows 95 Dell XPS M233 CPU / keyboard / speakers / subwoofer and my monitor-stopped-working-a-while-ago October 2000 iMac / keyboard / mouse / ZIP drive.
