[Noisebridge-discuss] Donations in, crap out : Reusing my surplus, recycling Noisebridge's waste

Oh yeah... I have an EPIA board too that I got for free a few years ago and
never used... I should donate that.

I also have a really old laptop that runs a tiny linux build I installed (it
was windows 98 before, and actually worked better with windows 98...) and a
bunch of nice scraps of plastic that would be great for, say, a laser
cutter. The laptop can be hacked apart of course, its too old to use but
maybe someone can make a digital photo frame or a robot, I dunno. It
actually ran win98 pretty well but its OLD.

Would NB want the old laptop? Uses a dell power supply I think, not
included.

And I live in the southbay. If anyone wants to pick up the stuff, my
girlfriend would be extra happy - it's been in a box marked "Noisebridge"
for two moves, and she's sick of looking at it - I just never make it up
there.
