I had a purge recently also. A young man on ... er, Craigslist or Freecycle, looking for old PC's to tinker with. He told me he's a gamer who plays some old games that work best on old hardware.

I had 9 desktop PC's and 1 MAC to give him. None with hard drives of course. He was pretty thrilled. I liked him and his girlfriend so much that I broke open my bins of cables and ancient mounting hardware. I dumped many dozens of old serial/parallel/CGA/VGA/IDE/ETC cables on him. I was careful not to purge anything that appeared to be crossover, though I seriously doubt I'll ever use one again. The only machines I run with OS's that would need them are running in VM's on machines that network easily. :)
