    One of the programs I've done with computers when I sell them locally is a "Trade-up program". Basically, say you buy a $100 laptop from me. You have a set time to use it, and if you want a higher...

    1500 pounds for a truck like that should be fine. Heck, out here in Wyoming, overloading is a way of life. I feel like I may be the only guy to not do it. I used to haul 1500# loads in the back of a...

    You can't blame the no-shows too much when we've been inundated with freak snowstorms :lol:

    As almost everyone here knows, I work with computers and their parts. So, for local sales, that means...

    If you're using the SATA on the motherboard, a couple of tips:

    First, extension cables are absolutely lovely, but they create a spaghetti mess fast. I'd take some cheap wood scraps or thick...

    I have no clue if you're talking about the lawn pivots or the massive "400 acre cornfield" pivots, but best of luck! I know almost nothing about either sadly

    A lot of people look at hard drives as a "thing". You get a bunch of them, put them in a box, sell them on eBay, and voila- money. That's a bad, bad way to look at things....

    The value of hard...

    Not all drives can do a Secure Erase, but most can. Some older ones can't, but I don't see those very often. For those, I have to use a triple zero-pass wipe system. But, those drives are becoming...

    I haven't used Easus, but I don't clone much. I deploy systems manually now, but I'm going to be setting up a PXE server and a cloning server this spring when I can get another room in the office...

    With SSDs, as long as the connector didn't get damaged in shipping, you should be good! The pallet I've mentioned in two posts already had some SSDs in it. I haven't tested them all out yet, but so...

    I run Linux on mine, but if you're looking at just reselling hard drives to MTSV buyers, running a health check through something like CrystalDisk will usually weed out most of the failures. It won't...

    I recommend against using more than 4 hard drives in a single computer, and recommend getting more computers as you scale. Here's why:

    Bad drives during a Secure Erase will wreak havoc on your...

    If they're willing to negotiate on their trailers, I wonder if they'd cut a deal on a box truck....

    I mean, I know U-Hauls don't get treated well, but it can't possibly be any worse than my last...

    You'll also need a dock to load the truck. That's the real problem for those of us out here in the middle of nowhere- it just eats into your profits so much to have a truck come to you. That, and I...

    Yep- mine is the 2.8. I'd like to get the car fixed up and drive it again, but if that doesn't work out, it's nice to know that there's a lot of money in the cats.

    Not to hijack the thread, but...

    The way any of those franchises work is that you pay them some of the profit in exchange for the "Value" the brand offers. That value is usually advertising and leads. Simply put, I don't think it's...

    There is enough knowledge here from over the years to write an encyclopedia. Where to focus depends on what you want to do? For example, I work in E-Waste primarily. I've hauled in some loads of...

    For some reason, your second one came in. I'll price out your RAM tonight if I get a minute. I'll be driving silage truck tomorrow, so I should get some downtime too. E-Mail would be a lovely...

    It's nice when you have a close yard. The closest one out here is about 50 miles away, so I need to fill the cage on my Dodge and take a trailer to get enough out of it for fuel and lunch. I try to...

    I'd like to see an 8 foot tall pallet in the back of your Tacoma- that would look really odd.

    Out here, we look at large distances like it's nothing. Many people in Wyomign will drive 100-200 miles to go to Billings for weekend shopping. It's just a normal thing out here

    Whoever Raceway Chevrolet is, I really don't want to buy a car there now. But, who am I kidding- everything I buy is from auction anyways. It's probably why I have so many vehicle problems....
