Now I can simply toss anything I want to compost into this bin, put the lid on and wait until I have something else to add to it. I never turn never have to remove anything but, if I wanted to get the compost from this bin all I'd need would be a dog poop picker upper and a bucket to drop my compost in after I grabbed a scoop full. Worms will do a good job of moving the decomposed goodies under ground for you. (my old one that was used for 20 years, had quite a large circle of superior soil around it starting at 1 year and the circle just kept growing larger every year after that.

I usually wait overnight to be sure. Pulling the battery clears the bios password. There is also a small jumper that you move to a different set of pins to clear the password and then move back. You can look up what jumper it is by motherboard on the manufacturers site. Either works on most models. A couple, like the old IBM ThinkPad are much more complicated and you should have someone that knows how do it if you have one of those. The way i posted works for about 99 % though.

The seed trains that I have participated in generally have a coordinator, who receives everybody's addresses, and directs each person where to send the package next. A time limit for having the package is usually applied, something like 3 days. Often times, the coordinator will receive seeds from most of the participants at the beginning of the train.
