DIYParts.org- a free exchange for computer parts
This treehugger does not buy corporate boxes but bakes his own. Its a hobby, like people who used to work on cars, and the last great joy of wintel over Mac- the ability to get inside and muck around. When our neigbours put their old machines on the curb, we gut them for parts. Consequently our basement is full of god knows how many network cards and half-assed video cards etc.
Imagine our joy to learn about DIYparts.org, where we can list all of our parts and components in a location-based website so that others can pick up what they need for their latest project- sort of a freecycle for geeks.It's new, it's confusing, and it is going to keep a lot of crap out of the dumps. ::DIYparts via ::Engadget
