I had a problem with one computer store. Apparently they felt nothing of 
copying games from peoples computers. The guy said "hell most of them are 
illegal copies that we are copying". I was pissed. Nothing on my machine 
is an illegal copy. And one of the games they copied was an unreleased 
beta that I had signed a non-disclosure contract on.

I have a bunch of machines in my garage that arent wiped. I dont remember 
whats on the hard drives. I added a USB external drive dock to my xmas 
wishlist. I would like to recover old programming code and such, then 
reformat them. Maybe even use them like floppies for making backups.
