I've been doing some pre-Spring cleaning around my house. I figure its better to do some of these jobs before the weather gets nice, and I want to be outside. A key to a clean, tidy, and organized house means periodically getting rid of things you don't need/want/use. And like too many technology buffs, I'd collected a few outdated computer components, including a could of bulky old CRT monitors that were simply taking up space in my closets. Don't just put these in the trash or (worse) leave them by the curb. Its illegal to do this in many places. Don't donate them to Salvation Army, GoodWill etc. These organizations get more of this sort of stuff than they can really handle. Do make use of the many (free) recycling programs electronics retailers offer. Make sure the company you choose disposes of the e-waste in a responsible manner (ie. they don't simply ship it off to Bangladesh to be picked apart by orphans.) Lastly, Don't make the mistake I did: Holding onto an obsolete and un-needed old monitor for several years simply because it had cost a lot of money when new. I never used it, and it simply took up limited space.
