How do you guys do it?

We have a old HP laser printer, toners finished, got a new printer. Parallel port.
Old games. Will keep the windows and office :D Games like NFS (1, 2, 3). Command and Conquerer, Sim City / Earth etc etc ...

Do you shred your old personal CD/DVD discs?

Have a portable color bubblejet too, parallel port. Haven't kept track, how are the portable printers these days like?


Cheers....

Sell it on Trademe - it's amazing what people will buy, and how much they'll spend.

Put it on trademe...?

If you have personal data... may be burn it up or break the disks or something? I don't have a lot of CDs.

Usually wait for E day to happen for hardware and such, CD's don't have personal stuff except photo's so not worried if someone got hold of them. I would be more worried if they stole the filling cabinet as the contents of that are worth far more than what's on the computers

There is a stream beside my house, whatever doesn't sink floats away.

I don't know why, but the Senior Dragon read this thread title with intense interest.

Put her on a plane to Vancouver earlier this evening! SWMBO is away visiting brother and friends from way back, in Canada/USA, for around 5 weeks.

After 42 years of wedded bliss I miss her already, after only a couple of hours apart. :wub

Health mainly, but $$$$ follow pretty close behind as another reason. ;)

1) Give it away on this forum
2) Sell it on Trademe
3) Give it away on Freecyle.org

Personal CDs? Get a Plextor CD writer and destroy the data. Then you can give them away to a school for art projects or something...

Between those 4 you're pretty much guaranteed to get rid of everything
