Computer, 2001-2009

1 min read

I finally got around to recycling some of the old electronics sitting in my closet by bringing them to the Hennepin County recycling center. I thought I was going to cry when they threw (literally, I’ve never seen a desktop computer fly so far) my old computer to the back of the huge container of TVs, stereos, and monitors. It was utterly worthless but I had a lot of memories attached to that aluminum box–namely LAN parties and college dorm life.

It gave me a lot of grief with 3 blown mobos and 1 dead powersupply over its lifespan. It was built during the height of the “modding” craze if you remember that. I made sure my box was rocking with a side window complete with a custom fan grill and blue cathode lights. No one could top my built-in car cigarette lighter, proudly installed in the spare 5.5″ bay. This is the one piece I kept. Maybe someday it will see new life in a desktop of mine.

Goodbye computer. If I had space in my closet Tutuapp APK, you wouldn’t be shredded and melted for scrap metal.

    This is funny sorry. Chris can’t seem to get rid of his computers. He goes to the recycling places looking for old computers or dumpster dives for them. All these are now in Chris’ parents basement. UG! We get them back when we return. Maybe they’ll get lost in the move back to Linwood 🙂
