I found a shitload of Windows XP cd's and boxs that look like they were used to install on machines in the store....but the fuckers didn't even give whoever they're selling these computers to the cd's, they just used snippers or something to cut one side so they are unusable and then threw everything in the trash The foldouts even have the product keys and everything still on them, not blanked out. I checked but try as I might I couldn't find a cd that wasn't destroyed I did find some plastic wire shrouding (usefull for engine bay stuff) and a sample pack of hp photo paper though, so it wasn't a complete waste.
he said the cdkeys are there....nochay said:do not toss the windows xp stuff yet! You have a barcode scanner? The serial number *may* be encoded in the barcode!

It was in a pile to be tossed out where i work/go to school and I grabed it before it went else where. And the sweet thing about it, The glass is mint, and it works!!!
The only thing I can find wrong with it is the adjustable feet in the front are missing (no biggie).
I'm sure some are you probbaly wondering why I'm excited about a overhead projector.. Well I have a Sharp overhead tablet at home Time to make a big ass TV for FREEEEEE
I'll post picks later if I remmeber too
Sesheron said:What he means is that he can take apart his tablet pc so the the back light is gone and just the lcd can be seen from both sides, lay it over the overhead and voila an easy 3000+ lumons projector...
There was a guide to doing it properly on tom's hardware, basically use blocks to keep the screen from touching anything and place a fan to blow air between the overhead glass and lcd, otherwise the heat from the overhead would ruin the lcd.

Awesome find...eL c0L0mb1aNo said:Left school today and passed by a recently closed cell phone store. Found this, plus three others:
Other signs were for T-Mobile, Cingular, and Nextel. Didn't have time to rummage through the rest of the trash but this was still a good find.
Haha that's awesome. I actually got a nice stack of porn mags from the hastings around here a couple years ago. Haven't come across any since, though. About a month ago they started putting a bar across the dumpster lids and locking it, but it seems they have since given up on that.mason_msw said:Thanks- and yep our hastings has theirs locked I hear because so many people would go get the old pr0n mags.
lol! How did he do that?jpmkm said:My roommate just sold some piece of shit old keyboard he found on the side of the road for $120 on ebay! Crazy shit.
Beats the hell out of me. It was sitting at $.99 with 0 bids up until just before the auction ended. I've sold a few items I've found for > $100, but never anything as shitty as an old keyboard. Here it is:Thermite Paste said:lol! How did he do that?
