Would anyone be interested in this stuff? I'm trying to clear it out of my
house - it's free, but you'll have to collect (from Hackney).
(Or I could bring small stuff to the dorkbot meeting tomorrow if you let me know

It's all free, although perhaps you could make a donation to a good charity if
you've got some spare money?
It all used to work, but there's no guarantee or warranty offered.
