While we have a couple of shelves of similar stuff right now, the only real restriction I have heard (and agree with) is to not accept CRT (tube) displays unless they have a specific project lined up.
We (and I think I mean I, mostly) should take a night and sort what we have out, set items up to be tested for working, or parts and sort them out. I had started this a month ago, but like everything else, something came up, and I have not gotten back to it.
It is my plan to set up a rack for cables of all sorts, and maybe even use the new Telco Rack's we have to set up a basic lab for testing whatever.
But right now, parts are good, bring them down, label them parts, or working if you know. I will try to get this going again soon, and sort out the computer gear a bit.
