When disposing of old electronics, make sure not to just throw them in the trash, either. Computer parts have a lot of dangerous heavy metals and other elements in them, and should be recycled appropriately. Check with your local waste disposal center ahead of time to see what options they have for recycling.
Some states even require by law that electronics be disposed of safely! Also, you can sometimes make a buck selling old parts online. There isn't a huge market for old parts, but a Pentium 4 can fetch upwards of $20 on eBay. We will have a more detailed article on computer reuse and recycling in the coming months.
(it's all one paragraph; chat wouldn't let me put it all in at once)

@IvoFlipse I'm not sure what kinds of posts are appropriate for the blog. Any advice there? TBH, I can't even see blog posts of mine like those the Macworld guys published on the SU blog. They don't seem to fit somehow...
(Hehe, as for my last comment at superuser.com/questions/122352/…, hence not backing up my messages? No thanks! [...] Mail.app (which has GREAT integration with Time Machine by the way). — I had my first full Time Machine restore a few weeks ago. Including buying and installing the new disk, it took me less than 3 hours!
True, @IvoFlipse, I guess I could combine many of the TM questions into one "Do you know all of the Time Machine secrets?" (Like I love my redundant TM disks, but many just trust in one disk they keep close to their computer....)
Here are somethings that I would like to see this week:
1. A post everyday again. 2. I'm going to be doing the first WTF post this week, but please be thinking ahead for more ideas in this departement. 3. Productive Thurday hasn't started yet, anybody wanna take it on? 4. I would like to see a post about the maintance or actual use of SU (i.e. asking proper questions, how to edit, answering the best way
It's experiment time!
We'd like to try the following -- with help from the moderators and community leaders.
When a new "big" game is released, provide (x) copies of it gratis to gaming.se community members in good standing, with (y) rep minimum.
The game should be ordered by a community leade...
As an aside: maybe your email is one of the 90,23% spam that my providers just blocks, according to this: xs4all.nl/klant/veiligheid/statistieken.php (It's not in my own junk folder though, so I doubt that. Most spam is tagged, but still delivered to me.)
How do you organize your disk for your projects?
I find that I spend a lot of time looking for files, which adds extra overhead to my work.
I keep trying to implement organization schemes, but they end up being too complex or inconsistent, and so I typically end up putting stuff in ~/temp and w...
After that, I'll get on to the performance posts. I've got a mail that I'm in the Soluto Alpha and I'm allowed to release a post about it's new features once the next Soluto Beta releases. Those could most likely easily fit in the performance posts as the easy way of troubleshooting things...
