Telkom DSL 2750u up for grabs, Randburg/Roodepoort area. It's been sitting for sometime just doing nothing, couldn't get it to work with my Fibre nor as a repeater so might need to flash it or something.

UPDATE:

@Nobody Important has taken the Kindle and case - enjoy!
@Lupus is taking the Oncor Christmas Tree this week

All other items listed are still available to good homes:
1. Ritzenhoff "Cats" Cat Bowl
3. DSTV DSD-1311 Decoder
4. Leadtek Winfast PVR2000
5. Leadtek Winfast PVR2000XP
9. "Carry On" complete DVD Collection (including the magazine for each film. Full De Agostini set)

@tRoN and @Daruk - I found an old thermal-type printer in the top of a cupboard this weekend - it was bought years ago in the UK; I think I tested it back then, but don't think I every really used it to be honest - will take some photos later and post the details - if either of you are interested, let me know.
Open to others/collectors who may also be looking for older retro stuff ;)

Sadly my wife and I cant take care of the doggies anymore. With the increase in rent, petrol etc. nevermind Dogfood we have to make a very difficult decision.... :(:crying:

So I am putting theme up here knowing they will find a good home. If you can just organise transport.

Item 1:
This is a beautiful black one, a little bit fat, but loves to be cuddled:

Item 2:
Basset. Also a very loving doggy and likes to play with kiddies.

Edit: Happy April Fools. I will rather die of hunger.

I thought as much but thought even @RedViking wouldn't stoop so low on a April Fool joke regarding furbabies.
Must say you caught me out :ROFL::laugh::ROFL::laugh: - you Sir are a Tosser :)

That Ritzenhoff Cat Bowl is mighty tempting. We have three spoiled cats. If you still have the box and don't mind taping it closed I can send couriers?
I'll likely give the printer a miss but thanks for the offer!

Yep, still boxed up - will see if it needs any additional soft wrapping and PM you the dimensions/weight.
Cool, will post the printer details later for others that may be interested ;)

Hmmm pity its not gigabit, i need a gigabit router, as for the flashing would like to tinker with it, could be helpful but don't want to take it from someone who needs it more, so i would like it, but only if there are no other takers.

Sinclair Timex 2040 Printer - for the ZX Spectrum 48K
Still in box and styrene - bought in the UK in 1987 - original paper roll, used once or twice.
Original power supply included and manual also included - no SA plug (bare wires - fit your own ;) ) have not powered up to test it...

Collection only (JHB - Randburg/Florida North)
Would rather not courier...I have no box that it would fit into...

Ok, also found some more "cupboard" items... I honestly cannot believe what I've accrued over the years!! :D
Going to list separately...

10. UltraGen UG3200 inverter, 24v, 2000w - used for 2 years, but now makes a buzzing noise when Eksdom goes off - my 100ah DC31's were knackered in any event, so it may be the batteries caused the buzzing when it's trying to charge them... if someone can use it/fix it, feel free to collect

NOTE: this thing weighs 21 kg's so no courier or packaging up - collection in Randburg/Florida North
ONLY

12. Cooler Master CM690 II case - used, bit dusty, no front covers, otherwise everything pretty much intact.

EDIT: Found all the front covers, rear slot covers and box of other bits including the VGA holder, stiffy drive cover panel, screws, zip-ties, etc - pretty much complete now...
Clear side panel - fans probably need replacing...

NOTE: due to size, and me not having a box big enough, collection in Randburg/Florida North ONLY
