Never the less, over the years I've inadvertently accumulated some stuff which is useless to me. Consider a historic widget still wrapped in its original packaging. I don't dare unwrap it and use it since its "worth" would go down. But from my point of view its current worth (sitting in plastic) is zero. If one can never use the widget, it's like not having it. So time to get rid of these widgets. Maybe some of them will find a home with someone who values sticking them on a display shelf.
Update: Slashdot are running my second submission: Mechanical Computing. The comments are surprisingly interesting and funny. Fortunately Tim's server is holding out well; guess I didn't need to build the mirror.
