Apart from the USB video cards, if you have any of those, feel free to
come around.

I have modems, 3G modems, mice, headsets, webcams, phones running any
one of a dozen different operating systems, mp3 players, Wiimotes, and a
zillion other different things.

Though if you have a drum kit or steering wheel, I'd be happy to get
those (as my wishlist can confirm[1]).
