It's time for the Great Geek Gadget Giveaway Grab Bag. I mean, Auction. You give me money and I give you gadgets. I didn't have a good alliteration that was all G's and got the whole Auction part across.
The full and unbelievable scope of this Auction can not be expressed by the simple picture below. You have no idea the treasures that await you. Perhaps you're a geek. Maybe a dork or a dweeb. Possibly a nerd, or a DIY (Do It Yourselfer). God forbid, a Trekker. Either way, I don't discriminate.
The Auction is up on Ebay right now.
Here's what's up in this amazing grab bag in no particular order. Note also that everything is in working order. Everything runs, turns on, has batteries and operates. Everything has drivers or firmware available on the net. If it doesn't work when you get it, it broke in shipping, YMMV.
Why am I auctioning off this glorious grab bag, Dear Reader? To raise money for an iPhone? No, please. I'm not that gauche. To pay gambling debts? Nope, I stopped watching after Reuben came in second. No, I'm doing it to avoid divorce*. There's only so much the wife can take, Dear Reader. The WAF (Wife Acceptance Factor) only stretches so far, and a decade's worth of glorious gadgetry is about as far as it goes. So, my pain is your gain, my friend.
These items are well loved, but all operational. They've all at one point been part of various crazy schemes that I've had to take over the world, or at least learn how better to interface hardware with my computer.
You pay shipping and I'll send it anywhere. You'll get it in this large plastic bin. I suspect it weighs at least 40 pounds. Perhaps more. I'm sure you'll have years of fun, as I did, with this diverse collection of gadgets.
* kidding about the divorce, but let's just say she'll be happy to see it go to a good home.
