Free shit week 05/08

Council clean-up again. I spend about an hour on Saturday doing a preliminary patrol of the suburb, and then about 3 hours doing a comprehensive sweep, looking for discarded computers and other goodies. There's barely a street in the suburb I didn't walk down.

At one point I was walking along and I saw an old bike among some rubbish. I was getting a bit sick of walking so I hopped on and started riding it along the footpath. The back tyre was flat and the front one wasn't much better, the seat was too high and I wasn't game to test the gear change mechanism, so it was a pretty bumpy and dangerous ride but I rode it a few blocks and had a bit of fun, nearly ran into a parked car and then discarded it outside someone's house.

Sadly I didn't find much in the way of computers, except for two that had already been mostly pillaged. I did extract a graphics card (which was what I wanted, but sadly it doesn't seem to work) and a network card (which does work). I also found a scanner which had some water in it but who knows, maybe it'll work.

There was a fair few people out and about looking for stuff, so I guess all the cool stuff was taken. But bugger it, it's an excuse for a nice walk. It's more fun than studying.
