Why did they guard cpus that were trash?
I'm guessing they didn't remove the hard drives or anything and just chucked them as is into the bins, and they didn't want any data to be stolen. So stupid and wasteful. I remember one week when my school replaced all of their computers, though they at least tried to sell the old ones. We took them all out to the parking lot planning to have a public auction, but no one showed up and it was getting ready to start raining. Me and a few other students asked them if we could take them but they said no, they couldn't give them away. So there they were, all those IBM PS/1 and PS/2 systems just sitting there in the pouring rain. As a final insult they had us help load them into the garbage bins after they were destroyed.
