Consuetudinis magna vis est.

When I was a young sprout, I toured the alleys looking for old radios 
that could be stripped for parts.  Later TV sets (some of those old 
power transformers were magnificent and went into power supplies).

When I started working with integrated circuits, I'd buy junked boards 
and depopulate them.  I probably still have a few of those things.

Part of being the son of Depression-era parents.  I can't stand to see 
things go to waste, I guess.

I yam what I yam.
