Default Re: Your Best Dumpster Finds

60" rear projection. Pushed it home (broke a wheel). Had a bad HV splitter and about 3 caps. COMMON defect. Now its up on a vehicle dolly in my room. We have this guy at work that cleans offices down town. He brings us lots of stuff their IT dept throws out. We've gotten PCs, Laptops, ac adapters, ethernet cables never even opened and even 400GB tapes.

He told us the obama campaign threw out all of their computers. Were talking P4 laptops like Dell D600 and tons of desktops. We ended up with 3 or 4 of the laptops. Some were donated by a non profit that was SUPPOSED to donate them to local schools in another state. Instead they went to a political campaign that ended up destroying them when they were done. Missing hard drives of course but otherwise perfectly good. He got what he could carry, rest of it got crushed. Now that's change you can believe in.
