I miss the second hand computer shops the most. There was a local one called 'Round Again Software that had used and consignment software AND hardware. Right up until they closed they had a nice selection of pre-Windows software and systems.

@Elizafox Ha! I tried the quiz and for the first time in my life I encountered the phrase "bleeding-heart libertarian". I guess it kind of makes sense I would be labelled as such, but especially in the U.S. I can't imagine typical libertarians being called " bleeding heart" LOL.

As a species we naturally do the opposite, so it is important to have a good upbringing to withstand societal bring-downs.
Also I believe people are (or should be) "brought up" throughout their lifetimes by others close to them. Make sure you and your spouse continue to "bring up" each other (and/or anyone close to you).
But keep in mind: are you bringing someone up or are they pulling you down?
