Never throw old hardware away just because it's old. As long as it is funktional there will also be someone out there who may need it to repair some old machine. Especially IDE drives can be really hard to find.

How many owners of old XTs are looking for old drives which still have an 8 bit mode. Impossible to get by now because the drives have not been made for some time anymore and most XTs have long since ended up in the trash together with all still working components.

A basic IDE port is really easy to build and even older computers that never had a hard disk at all can now have something like that. The 8 bit IDE mode has come back in form of CF memory cards, so there is not only hope for old PCs with defective drives, but also something for all sorts of oldschool 8 bit computers.

Besides that, some people pay a lot for old hardware. So much that it lets the newest and shiniest look like a bargain. You would not believe what some people would pay for my old Elf, even if it would not work anymore.
I have lived with several Zen masters - all of them were cats.

His last invention was an evil Lasagna. It didn't kill anyone, and it actually tasted pretty good.

When building an application, when is the most important time to consider the User Experience?
They are the ones we write code for, right?
