Two more accomplishments today

Took apart the old PC. Its drives are now scrubbed, and the old case has been thrown into the dumpster. Here is what remains:
Old PC

Front left to right:
Matching pairs of Western Digital WD1200 120GB EIDE and WD2500 250GB SATA hard drives, Gigabyte GV-R955256D(ATI Radeon) display adapter.
Rear left to right:
Allied 500W power supply, Assorted SATA, IDE and floppy cables, 80mm fans, dual USB + Midi adapter, Epson floppy disc drive, Pioneer DVI-A03 DVD-R/RW drive, ASUS P4C800 Deluxe - UAY0 motherboard with 1GB PC-3200 DDR RAM (2x 512MB), P4 3.2 GHz* CPU and Intel heat sink/fan assembly.

*Could be 3.1GHz, I forget, and can't find the receipt.

These all go on eBay Real Soon Now, unless someone wants to make me an offer I can't refuse.

Also got off my butt and hauled two 2-drawer file cabinets out of the computer room closet and tossed them into the dumpster. The sliders were munged, and I replaced these puppies about a year ago with a 4-drawer unit. They have been in the closet ever since, acting as a table on which to place other junk, like the sewing machine and an oldy moldy MIDI keyboard. With those gone, there is room for the Mac G3, and I can get to my collection of carry-on luggage and knapsacks.
