thanks so much for your excellent de-crufting, captain!! hella appreciated.

jake's spot-on wrt flow. this seems like an appropriate thread to remind
folks that Omni's recycling company, CiviCorps, has a free e-waste
recycling pickup option. The paper forms are on a clipboard mounted on the
bulleting board above the new front desk area Robb and I put together a few
days ago, but you can also submit a request online
<http://www.civicorpsrecycling.org/ewaste/>. Things must be itemized and
someone present to answer the door for the CiviCorps employee and help move
things out.

It would be most excellent if those most responsible for creating ewaste
help with its disposal ^_^
