As we are helping Mom get use to her new, Windows 8, computer we are wondering if there is any way to re-purpose the old computer. A former colleague of ours was an electronics professor. He encouraged us to donate old computers to an electronics department in a local college; specifically his. He said he liked to have them so he could give them to the new students and tell them to “make it do something, even if it is to just smoke”.
So, it is with this mindset that I notice some old technology as I walk around the block.
Planting grapevines under an old clothesline is a great use of old technology; after buying that new dryer 50 years ago.
