Garage sale

Having done my latest batch of upgrades, I've now got various pieces of hardware/software that I no longer need. These are all free to a good home, so let me know if you want any of them...


RAM: Apacer PC-100 128Mb, 71.73320.065 2300054 (168 pin DIMM)
230W PSU
Supermicro P6SBA motherboard
PIII 550 Mhz
Typhoon Radio card (ISA) - Windows 3.1 software, Win95 compatible
Olivetti PCS5130 (P100, 72-pin SIMMS - 2 x 32 Mb, 2 x 4Mb, 110W PSU, built-in Mozart soundcard, 4x CD-ROM drive, no floppy drive, no hard drive)
120Mb hard drive
Belkin ExpressBus 7-port USB hub F5U010 (compatible with Macs or PCs)


MS Money 2000
Mavis Beacon Teaches Typing v3
Tie Fighter (DOS)
FIFA International Soccer
Corel Draw 4
Norton AntiVirus for Windows 95 (v2)
Turnpike (my disks are for v1.1, but you can upgrade to the latest version free of charge)
Autoroute Express (1995 version)
MS Plus! for Windows 95
Yggdrasil Linux (v1.1 kernel from 1994)
MS Office 97 Professional
Quake II

Speaking of Autoroute Express, I also have a 1996 Road Atlas up for grabs.

So, these are of varying age, but (as far as I know) they are all still functional.

A related question - has anyone else found a sensible way to get rid of old computer equipment that can't be given away? (I'm sure that describes some of the list above.) As I understand it, dumping it into landfills is frowned on, so while I could get away with that (abandon it on a pavement near a bin), I'd prefer to recycle. The only organisation I've found that does that is Matrix Direct, but they seem to charge quite a bit of money for doing so.

Edit: I've crossed out the items that are no longer available.
