A very special Thank You to Sparr for coming to Noisebridge yesterday and hooking us up with a ton of new awesome donations!  It was very unexpected to have so much cool stuff for the space and I am super stoaked to have the NB Hardware back on the map!  He worked hard do carry up a lot of heavy stuff and even took back items that we don't need at the space, so very excellent!
I spent 3+ hours yesterday organizing and labeling everything as well as pitching some "hellbox" bin items (trust me, it was junk).  We now have a bin FULL of Lenovo and laptop power supplies, tons of decent USB mice and keyboards, battery chargers, A/V cables, Power Strips, POE gear, and other sorely needed useful items (I only picked out the necessities).

Here is a pic of one of the LCDs donated which replaced our dying Samsung one!

The resolution and image quality is FAR better.  If we turn off the power when closing up each night this will work for a long time ^_^

Follow-up. I'm currently planning to meet Zach at NB at 5:30PM on Wednesday. Here's a rough inventory of what I'll have with me. Zach is going to claim some of it on behalf of NB and another worthy endeavor. The rest will be available for anyone else who will put it to use at NB, but not for personal projects. I'd prefer to let a couple more spaces grab useful things rather than individuals right now.

100x mini altoids tins
11x 19"-27" LCDs
100x misc USB and video cables
40x laptop power adapters
100x misc audio video usb serial etc adapters
10x wireless headphones
10x USB headphones
2U Cisco blade chassis
1U server
10x generic USB keyboards
10x fancy weird USB keyboards
15x wireless keyboards
10x USB mice
15x wireless mice
2x old laptops
Polycom conference table phone
3x small GbE switches
And a handful of misc hardware

My work has a pile of "e-waste" laser printers, LCD monitors, laptop docks, power adapters, etc. I've been told I can take whatever I want. Some of the items definitely work (including at least a few brand new docks and power adapters), and many are probably mostly-working. I'd love to bring a cart full of stuff by to pick through with some interested parties, so NB can keep and use the good stuff and we can disassemble the bad stuff for useful parts. Is that a thing that could happen?
