Various electronics/computer parts (VA Hospital)

Hear Ye, I have the following dated computer parts/accessories and electronics up for grabs. All items may need dedusting and some cleaning.

Available for meetup in the evening, or I can just drop things off on a porch in the Ann Arbor area. Whatever isn't picked up by Wednesday or so next week gets taken to reuse center/drop off station or wherever.

1. An old Wacom Bamboo Tablet. Not sure what model number, but it was whatever was cheapest circa.... 2008? Comes with the pen, holder, and what I believe was the only cable.

2. Pogoplug "plug computer". Pogoplug was a cloud backup service that went belly up in 2016-ish (and according to twitter, so arruptly users didn't get a chance to recover their data, not that they were beloved before that), and this particular device could be used to remotely access USB drives without a host computer. I originally bought it since it was a dirt cheap ShevaPlug and could be flashed with a normal Linux image, but I never ended up doing anything with it. Paperweight if you aren't willing to install a custom image, FYI, but it's somewhat comparable in horsepower to a Raspberry Pi, though it's USB and ethernet only.

3. Logitech Rumblepad 2. Old enough to predate Bluetooth being universal, so it comes with a big honkin RF receiver. Basically a clone of the Dualshock 2, except with analog sticks that have an odd square socket and therefore don't work as well.

4. Qwizdom quiz remote (model Q4 RF). Not sure if this particular brand is still a Thing.

5. ASUS portable wireless access point, circa 2007 or so. Can be powered entirely from USB, which is nice, though I can't remember the last time I had a need for it given tethering. Underpowered hardware that tends to be flaky and only gets you 802.11g bandwidth. Also runs a now super dated Linux firmware that may or may not immediately join a botnet if connected to the internet.

6. A very, very, very cheap electric kettle. So cheap, so plastic.

7. An old P4 motherboard/cpu/memory combo. Came off an old HP workstation I bought off eBay many years ago, served faithfully as my parent's desktop. I think it still works fine, just don't have a use for it. Can dig up the model number if interested.

8. A 2011 Coolermaster case. Pretty banged up from being moved around a lot, but still functional. Note this just the case - no other components.

9. Omron Fat Loss Monitor HBF-306C. Measures body fat percentage (or claims to), but I never found it all that useful. Comes with the manual.

10. A cheap microwave. Might not be available for a few days, since it needs a deep cleaning. I think my mom bought this for me when I first moved into a dorm years ago, which would make it the oldest thing on this list - but honestly, aren't cheap microwaves largely interchangeable?
