Hi People just a question about the usability of some of my computer junk.

I regularly find pieces of broken computers and bring them home, i have a bedroom full of them and i was wondering it is possible to reuse say the USB Plugs in any way, as i have two dozen of those maybe more lying about, i use the little bits of wire for stuff too, would i be able to make a hdd to usb adapter for the hard drives i find? as most of them are in working order.

i currently have

4 HDDs all wanting to be used and they appear to work i just can't check them.
almost a Kilometres worth of short lengths of cable, eg six inches here and there.
~30 USB Plugs both male female and some odd looking transgender ones as well, i keep them in a special pile.
a few HDD connectors
and lots ofother junk

so can someone give me any ideas for a project?
