I am trying to clear out my office (and it's a mess) in preparation for a family visit. I have people over all the time, so the first floor of the house is in reasonable shape, but not the second.
Anyway, one of the things that has given me agita is the many cables and wires from electronic and computer equipment. I hate to throw them away, but have no use for them.
This afternoon, I happened to be talking to a friend and mentioned this to him, and it turns out that he keeps all this sort of stuff. He, unlike me, has a use for them, though. He takes computer equipment that his business is getting rid of (giving away to employees) and puts together computer systems that he gives to a number of charitable organizations in the area.
I was *so* pleased about this. I've handled these cables a dozen times, at least, unable to toss them but unable to use them.
