Recycling Blues

The time has come! My old friend, my first Mac, is going to the recycling bin at last. The IIci was, in it’s time, the fastest Mac in the lineup. But old age and the learing insult of having been on a storage shelf for many years has taken the life out of it.

We Mac users have a habit of holding on to our machines like you hold on to those things from your childhood that you will never play with again, but just can’t seem to let go of. Look at them on the shelf and say, “remember when?” We also give our computers names, as if they were real. We’re a little nuts, but happy about it.

So, farewell, rest in peace, or pieces as it were, return again as a plastic bag or metal part and just “remember”.
