Request: Amazon Firestick Remote and/or Power Supply, (West Bridgford NG2) - I am making do with using the TV remote and USB port for now but, obviously, it would work better when it is "optimising system storage and applications" etc. if I were to use the dedicated devices. Thank you. Request: Turntable, (West Bridgford NG2) - I am looking for a turntable for playing LPs. I have several vinyl records that I would love to hear again. Thank you for reading. Request: Windows 7, 8 or 10 Computers, Laptops, Tablets etc, (West Bridgford NG2) - I refurbish computers and gift them to anyone who is not in a position to buy. I would securely remove any personal data using DBAN that utilises the DoD 5220.22-M sanitisation standard (you can Google it) and change the operating system (perhaps to Linux). I have several people waiting, from single parents to students. Older machines considered. Thank you. Request: School Desk Chair (West Bridgford NG2) - We are looking for a desk chair to go with a school desk that we acquired. It is about the size used by a 6th former (young adult/adult). The desk is light in colour, probably pine, but this is not as important as the size. Thank you. Request: DVD Recorder (West Bridgford NG2) - Preferably with integral VHS player (but not essential) for transferring old family videos from VHS to DVD. I know at least two others who would like to do the same. Thank you for reading. Request: Power Supply Adaptor (West Bridgford NG2) Received - For an Acer Aspire netbook. I have recently had this donated by another generous Freegler but I cannot re-gift it until I can supply the power lead that goes with it. It is about 9 years old and uses the same power adaptor as most Acer netbooks of the time. It has the following product code in the top left corner of the label: N17908 V85. Note the plug in the pictures. Many thanks.

Request: 8 GB Memory Stick, (West Bridgford NG2) Withdrawn - I would like an 8 GB USB flash drive for creating a Windows 10 Installation Media stick. I am using a 32 GB stick at the moment and it seems like a bit of a waste as the media (32 and 64 bit combined) are only around 7.5 GB. So 8 GB would be perfect. Offer: Computer (West Bridgford NG2) Gifted - Ex Windows Vista machine. I was gifted this but, as I only work with W7 8 & 10 machines, I cannot use it. Looks like a gaming machine judging by the graphics card. The master hdd has been written over so a suitable OS will need to be installed. Might be a good practice tower for stripping and rebuilding for someone wanting to get into IT. Please let me know what you wish to use it for as it will help me to decide who to pass it on to.

Request: Turntable (West Bridgford NG2) - I am looking for a turntable for playing LPs. I was gifted an old system recently but the turntable was defective/incomplete (now gone). Thank you. Offer: Pens with Infra Red LED the orange ones have gone (West Bridgford NG2) Gifted - The pen(s) were bought to use for the Wiimote Whiteboard Project (view-able on YouTube). Each pen has 3 alkaline cells (LR41), a switch and an Infra-Red L.E.D. By using a Wii controller, a Bluetooth dongle, a projector and some freeware, you can emulate a Smart-board (costing hundreds of pounds) for a few pounds. Alternatively, if stripped for parts, the LEDs could be used to replace faulty LEDs in remote controllers as used for TV or DVD players, for example.
