    How much would you want for either or both of the Maxtor HDD's. Would be more than willing to take at least the ATA 133 off your hands.

    Sounds like half of my shed. Two weeks time the dust cart comes for house hold rubbish it's going to go to the dump.

    I have a wireless keyboard I never ever used, I noticed you have a wirless pointer.

    Until yesterday (had a clean-out) I had about 4 keyboards, 2 mice, and a 66MHz Cyrix machine. All gone now though :D

    shouldn't this be moved to the trading post? I might be interested in the wireless ethernet, why did they become surplus? You went wi-fi a different way or something?

    Well I would like the video card and would swap it with you for something I have. Most of the stuff I have surplus my fiance creates displays in the ITC section of her School for the kids. The video card is infact better than mine so if you don't want it then mail me I will send you the P&P when I receive it via next post.

    Well I wasn't really intending selling any of it! I was just surprised at the amount of stuff I had lying around, and wondered if anyone else had similar pile of spare stuff - :p

    But I'll think about the offers, although I'm away on hols next week so y'all might have to wait!

    could be a tad too automatic though - some cds auto-close when u reboot. you might have a small electrical hazzard if that happens...
