TGIMBOEJ – The Great Internet Migratory Box of Electronics Junk

Two months ago, I heard about a great project called TGIMBOEJ. Nice people put together a small box of random electronic what-have-yous, and send them off to people who asked to be involved. The recipients then remove a few things they find useful or interesting, give some of their own stuff to the box, and send it off to another person.

This week, I got one:

Pretty random. And great.

For those that are interested, I took the external optical drive, and the “ergonomic mouse” above it. The first was because my company laptop (Thinkpad T40…excellent) didn’t have an internal drive, and every now and then I want to do something with a CD with it. The second was because the only USB mice I have are cordless, and frequently have a dead battery. And the shape might be conducive to StarCraft and/or Half Life. I put in a handful of adapters and cables, a super-cheap Chinese PDA-type-thing, a pair of earbud-y headphones, and an electric pump taken from a dishwasher.

The best way to get involved is to sign up here. Or if you send me your address ASAP, I may be able to send you my box.
