Sounds Good. I haven't been down in absolutely ages. I'll get along on 

I have a few things on Freecycle:

Starbase Telephone: http://groups.freecycle.org/DurhamUK/posts/73544448

Two Catmate Elite cat flaps: 

Axis 2100 network camera: 

I'm also wanting to clear out an Apple wireless aluminium keyboard and 
trackpad. Using them now with my macmini running debian and tbh it's 
more hassle than it's worth.

I also have a Findster Duo+ combo; one base/sender unit and two 
receivers. Sadly imv they turned out to be expensive and no use for 
cats. battery too short and items too bulky. Theoretically they have a 
decent battery life but not when in 'tracking' mode - which is the whole 
point of having them in the first place. Furthermore, I attached them 
directly to the collars using the straps designed for the device, and 
they've got lost. So you'd need to think of some inventive way of 
attaching it to whatever you wanted to attach it too. Cost me over £150 
but of no value to me at all sadly. Been sitting in their original boxes 
on the shelf doing nothing all year. Have a read at 
https://getfindster.com/how-it-works/ if you want to know more and if 
any interest they're free to anyone who wants a tinker. You could 
theoretically use it as a short term local tracker by just popping it in 
your pocket.

If any interest then I can bring them along. But I'm walking and want a 
beer, so I'm not taking them home again! Especially the cat flaps. 
They're a bit bulky.
