    I've just dug into a long-forgotten box and pulled out some once craved-for tech items. I think most will go for recycling/bin.

    Zip drives with the 'click of death' a mere important save away!

    Amiga DTP software. Great when it worked but prone to crashing.

    Oooh. Never seen a Zip 250 before!

    I had one of the original, SCSI Zip 100s and I never had an issue with it. But plenty of friends with the later parallel port and IDE versions had click of death.

    Played a bit of sensible world of soccer but sadly the joystick wasn't working so England lost heavily to France, even with Gazza on the pitch.

    It's going on ebay though, not the recycling bin.
