  • printer – single function inkjet

    A bare-bones but reliable printer. Doesn’t have duplex function but rarely jams. I think someone won this printer and then gave it to me because they heard I needed a printer to make books. Unfortunately, toner ink was discontinuted in 2014. Features lyrics of a song written on masking tape. Donated in 2013

  • monitor – 24″ computer

    Even but somewhat thick bezels around the screen makes it ideal for horizontal, vertical, and/or any other positions. However, viewing angle is pretty limited. At 60Hz, it’s good enough for ultra quality settings in video games like Katamari Damacy. Not good for competitive gamers where 5ms in response time is not fast enough. Memory Express […]

  • LED – OPEN sign

    Was one of 2 available vertical signs at the time on Amazon. Purchased for practical reasons, as the Marion Nicoll Gallery has vertical windows. Secretly that was an excuse to justify sding more money on an orientation I think is more aesthetically pleasing, if at the exse of legibility and incurring more debt. Has “on” […]

  • electronics – webcam

    Likes to auto focus all the time. Likes to never to be in focus really. Can sit on top of a monitor or on a flat surface. 720p resolution. Used to be considered really HD and made you look nice when video conferencing. Uses USB-A connection. Not adaptable but is reliable. Memory Express in 2013

  • electronics – laser mouse

    A laser mouse with 2 buttons and a scroll wheel. Despite its age, is surprisingly still not outdated. Connected to devices via USB-A, allows for user to interact with digital contents with ease. Not suited for precision tasks, like shooting digital enemies or drawing an MS paint masterpiece. More than suitable for playing solitare and […]

  • electronics – headphones with mic

    Features an ambidextrous mic. This headphone with mic set is lighweight, ideal for Skype dates, online gaming with friends and/or enemies, and conference calls. Requires separate headphone (green) jack and microphone (pink) jack or an adapter to use at full potential. Memory Express in 2013

  • electronics – full rubberdome keyboard

    Features 104 keys (or maybe 108 keys?) for all yourkey needs, like a full numpad, F-row, and scroll lock. Is slightly curved to make typing slightly not straight. Comes with feet that flips to change typing angles. Switches are rubberdomes. All these features make this keyboard ideal for environments with more than one person, like […]

  • electronics – ethernet switch

    Can switch internet between multiple devices at 1000mbps each. Good for things like LAN parties, if you have more than one computer that needs internet, to connect computer(s) to a printer, etc. Features tiny green lights that flash whenever it’s receiving and delivering internet. Salvaged in 2013

  • computer – desktop

    Missing components like hard drive, power supply, and SATA cables. Still has it’s disk reader to play DVDs and CDs that might be gathering dust in a corner, basement, or box. Can also be used as a temporary desk or to store important things. Salvaged in 2013

  • cable – ethernet 50ft

    CAT 5 cable that can handle up to 1000mbps of internet at 100mhz bandwidth. Good enough for most internet activities, like emails, gaming with friends, Skype dates, print school papers, etc. 50ft is a lot, but it’s still functional when used in a space less than 50ft. Memory Express in 2013

  • paper – blue, green, grey, pink, red, yolk dark, yolk light

    Part of the pastel family, as it’s a pastel blue. Like the blue found closer to the horizon on a clear sunny day. Apparently used a lot in the legal industry and therefore somewhat unpleasant by association. The most grey that could ever grey, but on the lighter side, like the midsection of a somewhat […]
