It will be nice not to have to store the old hardware until one of these
round-ups happens. We're mighty tight on that kind of space here in
South Burlington, and hardware tends to collect in the corners of
instructional areas. This bill has been a long time coming.

Apple has done a summer roundup for free for three years running now, so
as far as I'm concerned, we're already there. They take anyone's stuff,
not just Apple hardware. They promise they'll destroy hard drives, so
your info doesn't end up in places you'd rather it not, which is nice.
I haven't taken their word for that on any machines that had
administrative data on them so far, but I haven't bothered to wipe the
hard drives on old student machines, whiich saves me a lot of time and
