Free Electronics Shred and Recycling Day at Orange Grove?

From: Mike Harrison 
------------------------------------------------------

According to:

http://events.chattanooganow.com/event.php?id=13209

Monday the 19th is a free shred and recycle electronics day
at Orange Grove recycling center.

Their own website lists it, but has almost no useful info:

http://www.orangegrovecenter.org

--------------------------

I didn't leave the house today... but I wrote a -lot- of code..
and even played outside some. It was a beautiful afternoon.
If you have leftovers from the "swap meet", looks like
they can be properly disposed of for free. Maybe.

=============================================================== From: Ed King ------------------------------------------------------ Michael Sholten (sp?) posted a message about this back around Oct 26 and that thread turned into the swapmeet thread. I gathered up a whole truckload (~ 10 computers, ~ 12 crts, and misc parts) of stuff to take to OG today. They're going to love me. ----- Original Message ---- From: Mike Harrison To: chugalug@chugalug.org Sent: Sun, November 18, 2012 7:20:57 PM Subject: [Chugalug] Free Electronics Shred and Recycling Day at Orange Grove?

=============================================================== From: Michael Scholten ------------------------------------------------------ Pretty close there Ed, just missing a "c"... Scholten ;) Computers we'll certainly love you for... Can't say the CRTs will bring you much love though... :P -Michael

=============================================================== From: Ed King ------------------------------------------------------ I dropped my "donation" around 11am... with 5 people unloading the truck, it only took 2 minutes to unload it all... made me almost want to go home and gather up another load ;-) feels good to free myself of a few of my demons... 12 down, 200 to go...

=============================================================== From: Stephen Kraus ------------------------------------------------------ Just hope you are not disposing of anything....useful :(

=============================================================== From: Ed King ------------------------------------------------------ they set up a big cardboard box, put it on top of a pallet, and said to "toss" the computers in the box... do you know what happens when you toss an all-in-one mac on top of another all-in-one mac? it ain't pretty I did not toss any alpha/sun/sgi/hp stuff... yet ;-)

=============================================================== From: Stephen Kraus ------------------------------------------------------ I'd like an Alpha machine....or whatever I can get my hands on. I'll bring a truck

=============================================================== From: Ed King ------------------------------------------------------ cool I only have one alpha up for grabs, an Alphaserver400. Stephen has first dibbs. I should get around to testing it tonight. I'm keeping the 2100 5/250. I "won" that thing on ebay for $86 but they raped me on shipping... charged me over $400 to ship it from northern illinois to chattanooga. that was the first, and last, computer I bought off of ebay. bastards.

=============================================================== From: Stephen Kraus ------------------------------------------------------ Ed, do you have an OLPC yet? I've got one I've thrown a stripped down Red Hat on.

=============================================================== From: Ed King ------------------------------------------------------ I think I had OLPC once but I took a pill and got rid of it

=============================================================== From: Stephen Kraus ------------------------------------------------------ Hehe, well this one isn't infectious.

=============================================================== From: Dave Brockman ------------------------------------------------------ -----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE----- Hash: SHA1 All good, I am only attempting to become the final intervention before scrapping, and because of supply issues, I don't run them in production any longer. Anyone else willing to tinker with one is in line before me. Come back Ed, you can view the shipping charges before you bid now... have for many years now.....

=============================================================== From: Ed King ------------------------------------------------------ Stephen: are you gonna be at the lawyer thang tomorrow night? I am planning on being there. I could bring the alpha400. I dug it out and booted it up this weekend... has 128mb and boots into tru64 unix. I think I tried installing openVMS on it once, a long time ago, but seems like openvms needed more than 128mb ram and I didn't feel like fooling with it (already had openvms installed on the big alpha anyway). Wanna trade for the OLPC? does it have working network? the guy who wanted the nintendo and sega consoles... you gonna be at the lawyer thang? I'll bring the consoles. I haven't gotten around to testing them yet so I don't know if they work (bought them at yard sales a long time ago and never plugged them up). Rod: still looking for your cardbus nics. No I haven't forgot. Just haven't found them yet. I think they are in one of my 13 storage tubs and unfortunately the first tub I opened this weekend contained a Speak 'n Spell, and once I found that, my productivity went to hell. Have two sparcstation 2 and one ultra1: first come first serve. no drives, no keyboards, no mice. the ss2's both have bad idprom/nvram and the ultra1 apparently has bad psu. anyone interested? if all you want is the case then let me know if its ok with you I'll keep the mobos from the ss2's for parts for my "keeper" ss2 (which also has bad idprom/nvram... hmmm, I wonder if these ss2's would still be alive if I had booted them up more often than once every 5 years?)

=============================================================== From: Stephen Kraus ------------------------------------------------------ I'm going to try to be there.

=============================================================== From: Michael Scholten ------------------------------------------------------ Yup, I plan to be there tomorrow. -Michael (nes/Sega guy)

=============================================================== From: Ed King ------------------------------------------------------ aiight, I've got the alpha400 and a box with nes/snes/sega consoles loaded up. I didn't bring any sparcstations because (a) noone expressed interest (b) it was raining when I left the house and (c) I rode to work with my wife and I didn't want to test her patience (she's already going to be mad at me when she finds out that tonite's event is NOT a Tupperware party like I told her it was) I should arrive around 5:30, if possible lets meet/trade before 6pm. if not possible then be ready to meet me at the car right after the presentation because my wife (who will be with me) will by then realize that she's been duped into attending a geek meeting and she'll be hot. I'll be wearing blue "polo" shirt with Tux penguin instead of gay polo horse. Reach me at 635-8344 (not my phone [I don't have one] so forget that number after tonite) this message will self destruct
