I do believe that you have been spammed.

I got the same (exact!) message at my chess set blog. Methinks rodrigo is trolling for business...

anyway...

i wonder if you can make stuff out of old cell phones and blackberrys...we have boxes of them here-i call that section of the workroom the technology graveyard. oh, and those monstrous old computer monitors-can those be salvaged for anything?

Hi!

I did a 'babblefish' translation, and he said that he liked my blog and then said to check out his site. As GB stated, it probably was a spam.

Currently most districts offer recycling of cell phones, monitors, computers and components. They are broken down by kind (metal, plastic, glass etc.) and then sold to manufacturers as raw materials. Most computers and cell phones contain toxic materials which should not end up in the landfill. I'm sure there is a local recycling company that will accept them.

Good Luck!

P.S. we used to donate our working computers to a school program that refurbished them for schools or low income families.
