Awesome! Also we're looking for cases wtih working power supplies. I don't know about bringing in CRTs yet; we have had a policy of not taking them in, at least until we've cleared a bunch of other junk and have a place to store them.cgallaty wrote:I have that stack of mother boards that I brought, they are sans heat sinks, but all seem to post, and have a gig of RAM. There where also a number of keyboards donated. There is also no shortage of CDROM drives.
I think the hardest part is going to be the screens. If we relax the notion of using CRTs we can likely get a number of high quality screens in short order. I would recommend 'settling' for CRTs with the idea of swapping them out as we can find older LCD units. That being said, I have an LCD at the space that seems to work (looks like it was the victim of a bad power supply)
Sounds good to me, but d'ya happen to know if these are the same type or just misc. displays? What kind of power brick is needed? Don't most LCDs just need a regular PC-type power cord?Booka wrote:Ok, The folks at FreeGeek Twin Cities are going to liquidate several LCD displays (15, to 19) that do not have power bricks for $5 each.
They will refund or replace non-working units, and we have first chance at these as they will start sorting these next week.
As they sort them (at freegeek) I can tag a few (say up to 8) if we want to commit to them. I do not have the cash to buy them myself, but we can get first dibs if we can or want to buy these.
