A friend of mine gave me a really good idea. In our area Goodwill does
auction off a bunch of stuff every Tuesday and Thursday mornings at 8:30AM.
The idea is to go in and help them to work on the computers. This
accomplishes a number of things. 1) It can help train some of the people
they are trying to help. 2) Fixed machines are worth more money hence a
larger income for Goodwill. 3) If we are helping, we will most likely have
the opportunity to see what is coming in and thus might be able to salvage
some classic machines!
