notes from
the MUCK . . .

How does your garden grow? With muck, muck and more muck! I spent much of today finishing the final muck box and then shifting muck from one box to the next. The first box, which the Big Lad is enthusiastically pointing out, has been rotting down for two years now and once we’d removed the top quarter of unrotted material, we found we’d hit the pay dirt.

I have recently decided that I want to sell my entire CD collection, something in the neighborhood of 600 or so discs. I have converted everything to mp3s, it's all backed up on DVDs and on my hard drive. I have no use for actual CDs anymore and we don't even have a decent CD player in the house.

Obviously, I would like to make as much money as possible. Equally obviously, I would like to expend little or no effort. What is the best way to accomplish these goals? The only obvious methods would either pay too little (taking them all to Plan 9) or require way too much time (eBay, Amazon marketplace). I would be thrilled to get $5 per disc, but maybe that unrealistic. I don't know. But I'm sure one of you has a great idea of how I can rid of all these discs and at the same time make boatloads of money.

Thanks in advance.
