Refill it with this! (Bid as of posting $41)

The question is - is the one thing that may be useful to you worth all the rest?

Those wireless keyboards and trackpads are excellent. I have a small stock of eBay purchases in a drawer so I don't run out. The pencil is probably gen 1 but that's perfect for an older iPad. Everything else is a throw away for me. Current bid is $62.



Ukulele music I couldn't find anywhere else.

Unsurprisingly with all those keyboards, there are none of the ones I love the most: small wired ones. I have 2 that get use all the time and I dread the day they go kaput. You can get lookalikes but they aren't made from aluminum so are louder (important) and plasticky-feeling (not as important).

There's an Apple Pencil in there.

Probably worth more than the rest of the stuff combined.

No.

Why no? I’m using one right now and it works fine.

It works, but I'm finding it to be very slow.

They're slow, obsolete, and unsupported, and missing critical security updates, and there's no way to install custom firmware to keep 'em chugging like some other routers, and the slow hard drives in them will fail soon if they're not already dead, and the enclosures are fused shut so you can't simply swap out the dead drives.

it all looks beat, or id say more $.

Nothing wrong with those older wired AL keyboards.... but in that condition, meh.

I have several small wireless BT keyboards, brand new, and apple mice, that will never be used. I should prob do free on FB.

I'm tempted by the large wired ones for sure. The rest I have no use for or already have.

If they're wireless mice, I'll send you a shipping label if you wanna pop one in a padded mailer!

How did you get a pic of my stash?!






I am that Masked Man.

All you can do, is all you can do.

There’s trouble — it's time to play the sound of my people.

Your boos mean nothing to me, I've seen what you cheer for.

Insisting on your rights without acknowledging your responsibilities isn’t freedom, it’s adolescence.

I've been to the edge of the map, and there be monsters.

We are a government of laws, not men.

Everybody counts or nobody counts.

When a good man is hurt,
all who would be called good
must suffer with him.

You and I have memories longer than the road that stretches out ahead.

There is no safety for honest men except
by believing all possible evil of evil men.

We don’t do focus groups. They just ensure that you don’t offend anyone, and produce bland inoffensive products. —Sir Jonathan Ive

An armed society is a polite society.
And hope is a lousy defense.

You make me pull, I'll put you down.

I *love* SIGs. It's Glocks I hate.
