More car boot crap

Got a 500GB PATA drive for £4! Works, I'm just using my Mac to secure erase it since there were files there. Idiots...

Also got a 35mm SLR and three lenses and some filters etc. for £15, unfortunately the lens fitting is Fujitsu's pre-digital bayonet which reduces the market considerably - you can use them on micro 4/3rds cameras with the right adapter, but that's about it. I'll probably make a small profit, but it may end up being more work than it's worth.

And another Mac Mini-VGA to VGA cable for 50p - I really don't know why these keep turning up, you'd think there wouldn't be so many spares knocking around.

Spent the evening listing everything (apart from the drive, that's for the next Mac I upgrade) on eBay, we'll see what happens.

If only...

Saw this advertised on Freecycle today:

Dell desk top computer with muse and keyboard

I could really do with a muse right now, but somehow I doubt that's what was meant...
