Freecycle is a maker's dream Answered

I know freecycle has been mentioned here before, but I thought I'd share just how good a resource it can be for people wanting either
a) projects
b) cool stuff that they don't mind fixing up a little

This is a picture of most of the stuff I've acquired from freecycle in the last few months. Most of it was for fodder for electronics-ish projects, but there were a few things of genuine utility that it just turned out no-one else wanted. Sometimes I find it hard to believe the amount of stuff you can get from freecycle- someone could probably set up a shop dedicated to just reselling reconditioned stuff. It would be like Steptoe and son (US readers: Sandford and son) but with more slightly-out-of-date-but-perfectly-serviceable computers.
