I'm having another clear-out, to get rid of some of my accumulated clutter. If anyone would like any of these items (free of charge), just let me know; ideally I'm looking for people to collect from my flat in Croydon, but if I'll be seeing you elsewhere then I may be able to bring some bits along with me. I'll put this list on Freegle tomorrow evening (Sun 13th), so I'm giving my friends first dibs.


Joystick (Microsoft SideWinder Force Feedback 2).
NB This isn't compatible with Windows 8.1.

Tower case (chassis). This is just an empty box, i.e. you'd need to install your own components to get a working computer. It's quite big, and has space for:

It doesn't have any USB ports on the case itself, so you'd need to use a drive bay and/or expansion slot to install your own ports.


Polar watch and accessories:

Rear cassette (i.e. the cog wheels that you use to change gear). There are 10 cogs: the biggest is 36T (36 teeth) and the smallest is 11T. I bought this in Paris after my bike had a catastrophic mechanical failure, but when I got back to the UK I discovered that it won't fit my bike. So, this has never been used.

20" unicycle stand.

Contour helmet cameras:

These both support 1080p, and the +2 has a GPS built in. They're in the original packaging with the various accessories, e.g. the +2 has a waterproof case. They both have the same "form factor" (shape/size) so you can swap them around with the same mounts and use the same batteries. You can also use the same memory cards, but you have to re-format them if you move them between cameras.

The snag is that neither of these cameras are currently working, so they will need repair. Contour's policy is that they don't offer a repair service; they think it's cheaper just to replace the camera. I couldn't find anywhere else that would do it, but maybe you'll have more luck than me. Specifically:

Hmm, good point. I think I've had enough offers from Freegle that I'll be able to dispose of them (with people coming to me), but if those people turn out to be no-shows then I may be able to get the comics over to the library. I'm guessing that they'd only want the paperbacks rather than the loose issues.
