I've seen newspaper articles and such on this topic online but don't
know if they're still out there or even where they were. Can any of
you here help him out with some links or such? Respond directy
to him at the address in the message.

Subject: Re: Obsolete computers--a paper

  Hi, thanks for responding!
  I am taking an introductory computer class, and need to do a two
and a 5 minute speech. We get to choose the subject.
  Basically, I am looking for brief information, such as environmental
hazzards posed by discarded computers, perhaps an estimate of
the number
of computers being disposed of daily (monthly, yearly-basically I
need one
estimate to work with), what can be done with these "obsolete"
to keep them from ending up in landfills (I noticed you were working
this), etc. I'm not looking for you to give me the information, I don't
mind doing the research myself, as I find this an interesting topic. I
just need maybe a few websites that may be able to help me.
  I appreciate any help you may be able to give me in steering me
in the
right direction. Thank you! Damon
