I have a question. Over my time working with computers I seem to have accumulated quite a collection of odds and ends; Old cables of various types, power supplies and transformers, spare network and drive cards, spare or backup hard drives, other useful bits of old computers, multimeters, soldering irons, breadboards, and the like.
At the moment most of it is packaged up in zip lock bags in the drawers of an old desk - but I know this is a far from the ideal answer because even with labelling it takes ages to find things and I'm the only person in the house that can find the spares for things when something breaks.
I've already gone through and ditched everything that is dead, completely redundant or that hasn't proven to be useful in the last year.
