while i have neither punch nor pie, i do have some stale oatmeal raisin cookies... and :

an EPIA system (circa 2005/2006) that might be able to replace a power hungry server that doesn't have to be too fast (it's in a small shuttle-like case, either 512 or 1G ram, not sure; needs PATA HDD), 

a Model M clicky keyboard (PS2 -- slight cosmetic damage though works great) 

and a Emu Proteus / 1 MIDI noisemaker (er, synth) 

that could happily go to NB if someone wants to swing by my shop and grab them.  Won't fit on my scooter for drop-off unfortunately.

unfortunately haven't been able to find the extra pedal for a Dremel.  i'd be happy to make up for it with a bread machine however.
