The last thread was once again full, so I think its time for a new one. With that said, I've got a new list of freshly picked goodies.
2x Quantum Fireball lct 15, 20 gig drives, both took a format and dos scandisk surface scan. They have compaq OEM tags on them.
1x Western Digitan Caviar 135AA, 13.5 gig drive, also took a format and surface scan, with compaq tag.
Hitachi 4.8 gig laptop ide drive... Not tested yet, suprise, theres a Compaq tag on it.
Adaptec 2940, narrow pci scsi card, exactly what i needed to drive the HP Scanjet 4c I got a mobnth or so ago. Both work great!
US Robotics 33.6 external faxmodem, with power cord and serial cable, powers on ok, don't have much use for it though.
Socket 7 motherboard, SIS 630 chipset, compaq part, will do 550mhz without using tricks, fsb up to 133mhz, has a small gash in the side that may be repairable.
Logitech Wingman Formula Force GP, force feedback steering wheel, cable from wheel to pedals torn, no power supply. Anyone have one of these and can give me the voltage requirements? Untested until I pu a new fitting on the cable (similar to telephone handset connector) and figure out power.
Misc mouses, ps2 keyboards
5 or 6 boxes of Fasson "Offset'N Laser" paper, which is like sticker paper you print on. Its a little bigger than a normal piece of printer paper, to allow for a small border that you pull against to peel the sheet off. Sounds like a fun thing for kids. Maybe 500 sheets per box?
Printers! HP Deskjet 660c and 560c, Lexmark 1100, and a panasonic kx-p1180. All work, the inkjets have empty color carts but enough b/w to print with.
40 or so black CD-R's, memorex brand, loose in a dumpster. Washed them off, they work fine.
10 or so plastic tubs, great to use for organizing your finds. You can fit about 20 ATX power supplies in one.
4 or 5 PCI modems. Some with voice support. Not yet tested.
New fabric executive office chair. Box says missing hardware, contents appear to be there otherwise. Same dumpster, hardwarer kit for chair.
Smallish leather office chair.l This one was used, and dismantled before it went in the dumpster. No bolts but I find those all the time.
4x new wooden filing cabinets. Look better than the cheap-o my wife bougth 4 years ago, got to build it then probobly replace the old one and sell the rest.
The *duh* award of the day goes to the store that threw out a brand new 100 pack of Memorex 48x CD-R's. The only thing I saw wrong with it was the shrinkwrap was removed and the label was off of it. Maybe someone took one? Looks like about 100 CDs to me though.
3x cans of ArmorAll Tire Spray stuff, its supposed to clean your tire and make it shine, and keep it from dry-rotting.
1x each bottles of paint stripper and paint thinner, both brand new.
GBC Paper Trimmer, http://www.officedepot.com/pictures/SK/MD/330379_sk_md.jpg in case you don't know what that means. New, with some paint on it to discourage scrappers. Good thing we got that paint stripper, huh? (Guess where this one came from...)
Paymaster check security gizmo. Looks like something that could get an unscrupulous person in trouble. See the movie Catch me if you Can? Good movie. Its the device Leo had in the hotel room that puts numbers on checks. Was hoping to sell on Ebay, not looking too promising though.
New box of Quicken 2000 Deluxe (with quicken family lawyer built-in!). Hopefully will be Ebay-able.
ISA Voice Modem, 56k, jumper configurable or PnP. I prefer jumpers for ISA cards.
Thats about it. Its nice to get such a high percentage of stuff that tests out ok vs stuff that blows up when you plug it in. If I start around 8:30, I'm done with my regular route by around 11am, and I can spend a few hours looking at new places. Unfortunately, the new places i"ve been looking aren't paying off, we didn't get a single item after the regular route and were out until after 4.
Anyone finding XBOX's lately? If so, send me a PM, I'm looking for some info and a possible trade.
