Free: Philips surround sound system (Chelmsford CM1) - Philips surround sound system, very old now, was working when last used, but fiddly to set up, and the instructions disappeared over the course of several moves.

Free: Shelving Unit, bookcase. (Chelmsford CM1) Gifted - Largish shelving unit, we have been using for larger books. Reasonable condition. Has not been dismantled because it is unlikely to go back together again without damage, so you will need a large car or a van to transport it. 89.5cm wide, 167cm tall, 28.2cm deep (no idea why the size is that weird, it doesn't correspond to anything sensible in imperial units either).

Free: Four children's Rugged Laptops, NOT WORKING (Chelmsford CM1) Gifted - Four children's rugged laptops, were discarded by a special school. One charger plus cable. These do not appear to have an operating system, they seem to be looking for a USB OS or a network OS which isn't connected. Have tried a bootable USB stick but it needs an i686 OS and I do not have one (or the time and patience to obtain one - Arch or Phantom?). Very old, bios date is 2002, and there is a PAT label which states that the next test date is 2012. Might be an interesting project for someone. EDITED TO ADD: 19th April 11:19 These are now promised to someone on Freecycle, so I can't mark them promised on here, and I don't want to withdraw them because it usually takes several goes to get things collected. I am now operating a queue and there is currently one person waiting. 19th April 1605 Two people waiting.

Free: Out of date Origami Calendar (Chelmsford CM1) Gifted - Origami calendar from 2013. The origami animals were made for the first five months, so June onwards are still to be constructed. Putting on here because although useless as a calendar, the practice squares are still intact, and there are still 7 animals to make, so might keep someone or their children amused for a while. You could also use the instructions to make the missing animals using the practice squares, and then colour them.

Free: The Book Your Church Doesn't Want You to Read (Chelmsford CM1) Gifted - The book your church doesn't want you to read is a book of shortish essays about religion.

Last chance, cardboard recycling Thursday. Or maybe paper recycling next week, if no one wants it.
