A prehistoric computer that was dumped on our verge has slowly been dismantled over the last few weeks. It is not even rubbish collection week here, so I think the previous owners of this relic hoped that it would be useful to someone, or would simply just disappear one day.
I think it must be similar to the mentality regarding leftovers in our house. There will be one manky boiled potato and half a sausage remaining after dinner, and this will be put on a plate in the back of the fridge and named ‘Leftovers’. Leftovers is then forgotten about until it has grown legs and is ready to move out and start a family of its own.
