    My wife would murder me for hoarding that much - I've got too much as it is and have a bi-annual clearout of it, usually just throwing most of it away after hours of wondering what I could possibly use them for. After all, you never know what you can burgle from old computers - fans, cases, those sticks of ram could be useful for *something* one day. But what? You just won't know until or if it happens!

    Wow! That's an amazing collection. Unfortunately, and with weird timing, we're currently in the process of throwing out a load of our archive, or I'd claim them for PC Advisor Towers. Spring cleaning and all that!

    Ah what a shame, you would have been welcome to them as well. I hope you've digitised that archive before disposing of it, would be a shame for it to be totally lost. It's as a result of spring cleaning I've unearthed these myself. I'll drop an e-mail to the computer museum at Bletchly as per mattx's suggestion and see if they want them, if they don't then who knows I may lug them all up into the loft and just sit on them for another 10 years.
