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.
