Last weekend, a coworker offloaded a truck-load of electronic componants to me -- resistors, capacitors, potentiometers, ICs, audio connectors, fuses, PCB boards, soldering equipment, etc., etc., as well as some circuitry books and schematic tutorials.

I am now my own Radio Shack, as far as electronic componants are concerned.

These two chests in front are full of resistors, ranging from less than 1 ohm to about 1 mega-ohm. The chest in the rear is full of capacitors and more resistors. I have another chest (not shown) that's full of fuses, and another one full of non-polarized capacitors, plus a giant cabinet full of miscellaneous ICs, diodes, and other things I haven't identified yet.

Fun! It's like geek Christmas!

It didn't cost me anything. He gave it all to me. He hadn't touched the stuff in years, and knew that I was into electronic tinkering.

Seriously -- it is awesome. The guy told me that at his last count, this was a few thousand dollars worth of components.
