I have a big bag of miscellaneous hardware manuals, old operating systems' discs (e.g. Windows ME), dial up modems and the like. My instinct is to bin/recycle the lot according to their kind, but if anyone has any better suggestions they have a window of about two days grace...

Actual copies of old versions of Windows have some small value, particularly if they're not OEM. I tend to bin manuals (very good ones, like the old Photoshop manuals that were hundreds of pages long, I give to charity) and eBay disks (eg I got a tenner for the boot disks for the PowerBook that got stolen, despite the fact that they would only load Mac OS X on *that actual version* of the PowerBook). Proprietary cables may have value (eg the Psion 'Soap on a Rope' did, for years and years) but generic ones don't really.

The ME disks should probably be microwaved to stop any hapless idiot from installing that piece of crap by accident - a bad OS even by M$' standards....
