Holiday simplifying, or: Paul's Junk Giveaway

I've been going through my house over the last few days trying to do my semi-seasonal purge of things I don't need. It's all part of the continual process of reducing the clutter (physical, mental, spiritual) in my life. Among the things I no longer need: An old copy of DVD Studio Pro 2 (install discs, manuals, box). I've upgraded to Final Cut Studio, so I have no use for it, but it seems like a waste to just throw it out and recycle the manuals. It's not the most up to date version, I assure you, but post a comment if you want it and I'll mail it to you, free of charge.

Here are the minimum system requirements, as found on Ken Stone's site:

Macintosh computer with PowerPC G4 processor (733 Mhz or faster). AGP graphics card with 8MB of video memory (32MB recommended) Mac OS X 10.2.6 QuickTime 6.3 256 MB of RAM (512MB recommended) 20GB of disk space DVD drive required for installation Apple SuperDrive or other DVD burner for writing finished projects (recommended)


While I'm at it, here are a couple of things I've been reading during my seasonal simplifying. Both are good reads during this season of "Buy! Buy! Buy!"

The venerable classic: Walden

A classic I just discovered: Richard Gregg's The Value of Voluntary Simplicity
