well, the frenc teacher at my school was getting rid of his powerbook 145 today. we are all packing up, to move inot our new building, so threre are ALOT of boxes everywhere. He is a mac user, though not as much of a freak as I am. well, he mentioned this P 145 to me before, and I was very interested. well, today, I saw it. where, you ask? IN THE TRASH CAN!! I pulled it out, now PS, but I have an extra one lying around. this thing has BOTH legs and PORT DOOR intact, as well as an aftermarket 15 pin monitor port hacked onto the side. well, I want to ask him if I could have it, and I couldnt find him. another teacher said he was getting rid of it because it had personal info on it, but sauggested that I hunt him down and ask him if I could format it in fron of him. (I have a copy of 7.1 lying around. form there I can take it to 7.5.) well, I go out in the parking lot, being told he was at his car. I left the PB145 on the counter while I went to go looking for him BIG MISTAKE. I should have stuck it in my bag, and ran off with it. hell, he didnt want it anymore, and I dont care about personal info. But, I had my PS2 in my bag, and I had very little room. well, I couldnt find him, so I return to the room, thinking he would be there. coorect, he was. So, I spent 10 minutes pleading with him for the book, which was nowhere in sight (not on the counter.) even offering to buy it for however much he wanted, but he refused. he claims it wont boot, but his personal info could still be extracted off there. I told him I could get it working, and format the HD. no budge. so, I sadly walk down the stairs, and walk out the door.
there is some light to the story, dispite it was the last day of school. some of the teachers are still not done packing, so I offered to come back next week and help. they say they need all the help they can get. So, while I am there, I will take a look-see and see if I can find the book. If I cant, I will be saddened. I dont know what day trash is, so it may still be in the building on monday.
So, what's your opinion? -digital
