Re: Old Computers

I took all the hard drives out of about six computers. Also took out all the CD-ROM drives. Then put then at the end of my driveway. I was shocked at how quickly they were taken.

If gold keeps going up, I’m going to retire and spend my leisure time reading other forums on why gold is a barbarous relic and a poor choice for a portfolio.
Does that forum happen to be frequented by Knuckleheads? ;D

No idea how those hiring would see each option. Hopefully Tyler will comment.
Just out of curiosity, does she have a favorite programming language?
I told her via text, "My internet friends want to know what your favourite programming language is."

She said "WTF lol. Uhhhh Javascript?"
