=============================================================== From: Jason Brown ------------------------------------------------------ @Jeff : Yes, a few different variants of that trackball.. I can dig out details if you want. --Jason -- Jason Brown

=============================================================== From: DaWorm ------------------------------------------------------ I'll take any with the small thumb ball and scroll wheel. Pretty sure they'll all be PS/2 type. Not really interested in the ones with the center finger ball like below, but if it's an all or nothing type package deal I could find a home for them. [image: image.png] I run two of the ones like the picture in the previous email and love them, and I have two more without the scroll wheel which drives me bananas, but the good ones will die one day and I'd like spares. I'd much rather have them on the shelf with my Dell 101 key keyboards than in some landfill somewhere! Jeff

=============================================================== From: David ------------------------------------------------------ I have offloaded a ton of stuff to boardsort.com, just roughly sort and weigh it and they pay by the pound. Ram, CPUs, and IO cards bring the most from them but they technically will recycle everything you can ship to them. I still have tons of stuff to sort and ship them but haven't gotten around to it since work has gotten crazy. Thanks, David R.

=============================================================== From: David White ------------------------------------------------------ I also take my stuff to Hamilton County recycling. I use `dd` et. al to securely erase my drives first. -- David White
