Day 3 of my captivity…

Okay, okay, its not THAT bad….

So, here’s another progress indicator… the dump load so far…

Of course, I SHOULDA been checking with the local scrapyards/metal recyclers, ’cause one of them takes computer cabling at $.50/lb, and SOMEWHERE in those bags are enough 120v computer power cables to pay for my gas to take them to the recyclers… Guess I’ll slit the bags before I punt them into the bins at the dump, and do a pre-dump sort… Then, I figure I’ve got enough random cabling left in the basement yet (keyboard cables, power cables, thinwire, Cat5e in 6-8 foot chunks, etc) that I should be able to cover the cost of some new shelving…

    Great work on the cleanup! I had no idea people paid for cables, I may have to take mine in too. But what if I need that one cable someday…. actually, I’m limited to one tote of “tech accessories” and that’s what’s saving our basement from overflowing…

      Well, I took in all my assorted cables to B & N Metals, they weighed them up, and I came away $44.50 richer… for 89 lbs of cable! Then when I got home, I found another box! DANG! I coulda cracked 90 lbs of cable! Oh well, I’ll have a start on my NEXT box of them!
