Re: Surely no one needs any of that Firewire gear any more?

"My mantra is keep one of everything when possible to avoid the need of everything !"

I try to keep 2 of everything (a la Noah's ark) so that: 1) items don't get lonely 2) they might spawn one day and produce little ones, 3) If one fails when needed, I'll have backup

Have too many small items...cables, etc.. to list, but in addition:

serial mice

1200, 2400, 4800, 5200 modems ( 3 Com ... )

laplink software and cable, developer kits for Lotus, MSDN, Sniffer, PharLap, BoundsChecker, etc.

Novell Netware 4 and all NLMs

complete token ring network - hub, MAUs, cards, cables

AS/400 + CRT + O/S + keyboard

a working HP Laserjet 4+ (still being used)
