Last weekend I threw out a perfectly good Roland A3 size DXY-980
Plotter, as no one wanted it. Of course as soon as I bin it, I get two
requests, one from Canada, and one from a local. I had posted this
message several weeks ago, before I tossed it.

This weekend I have two older VGA CRT type monitors, one 17", one 14".
Pick up one, you must pick up the other. Both go together.

Free for anyone who wants to pick them up from Tullamarine (Gladstone
Park) 3043.

Must be useful for someone.

Which reminds me, I've also got a CRT monitor I need to get rid off. A
Panasonic 21" Panasync Pro P110
R/G/B/H/V coax inputs as well as a DB15

Pickup from Baulkham Hills (Crestwood) in Sydney.

Email if you want it.

Dave.

Strewth, that's hard to beat. Can anyone raise Dave by a free 21" unit?

Hate to see this sort of stuff binned.
I guess I'll try the local school, if I can't find a home for them.

If I ever dump the dual Sun/sony 21" I am currently using maybe , but
until then....

Oops, forgot to mention, it doesn't come with the base swivel stand thing,
no idea what I did with that.
So it's got this bulbous bottom on it that doesn't let it sit flat. Nothing
a couple of phone books can't fix.
Will try and find a DB15 cable to go with it too.

I just leave stuff on the Nature Strip, guaranteed gone in under
30 minutes. The record is 10 Minutes for a Lawn Mower.

Yup, although a lot of areas are starting to look like Soweto !!

The last 20" I left out was there for two days , then was taken at 3 am
by some old bloke with a cart pulled by a short rope .

I know, and I would except that I live in a cul-de-sac with a fairly private
entry. Never get anyone down there who doesn't live there.

But on council clean-up week stuff goes in 10 minutes when the scroungers
systematically go around the streets. Can't do that any more though, they
just changed the clean-up from regularly scheduled to "book a date". Insane
idea.

book a date, what is that pimp my trash
sounds like another way the council is extorting money.

Instead of two regular scheduled cleanups a year when everyone puts their
stuff out at once and half of it is gone by the time the truck arrives,
everyone now has to phone up and book date and they'll come direct to your
place. So now every street has at least some junk scattered all year round,
and not nearly as much of it gets scavenged. Dumbest idea ever. Although we
supposedly had a say in it when it was proposed, the voting options were
rigged so there was basically no choice.

   You blokes need to create some Aussie freecycle groups:
<http://www.freecycle.org/ It's amazing the stuff people will take, or
ask for.  The process is simple. You need a Yahoo email address to join
freecycle. Then you create a local group and spread the word.  Local
people join the group, and most groups are unmoderated, except for a few
problem members. You log into your local Yahoo Freecycle group to post
messages, and it is added to the group's database, and emailed to
members who want listings emailed to them. The entire process is fairly
automatic.

There is <http://www.freecycle.org.au/ which doesn't appear to have any
particular e-mail address requirements for registration.

   All that site does is act as a directory to local groups.  You have
to subscribe to a local group, and log in to it to post.

The monitor is already on Freecycle, no responses so far.

BTW, the NW Sydney group is moderated, each message must be approved before
posting.

   I see about six request for a monitor a week on my local group.
Someone offered 20, and two large Xerox machines the other day, and had
several people want them all.  I currently have over 100 spares for my
computer recycling project, so I don't need more that the usual two to
four a week that show up here, in North Central Florida.  When I run out
of storage space, I give away the extras on Freecycle.

   Freecycle says not to do full moderation, but some moderators seem to
do it, and get first shot at everything worth taking. :(

well, I sat them on the front nature strip yesterday, and they walked
within 2 hours, as far as I could tell.
