Hehe - I hadn't even THOUGHT about you.  I'm glad I decided to bother
suggesting it!

So far, it sounds like at least a FEW people are pretty excited about
the idea.  Perhaps we can get interest from the CS club folks as well...
I know at least a few people from UCD who are _insane_ pack-rats.
(Like, they sleep under computer equipment in their bedroom)

The suggestion of doing it at Z-World's parking lot isn't a bad one.
I'll see if I can poke Joel or Jim about it.

I'm guessing doing it on a weekend makes the most sense.  What days work
well for people?

Indeed.  I typically donate stuff to the SPCA ThriftStore, but I realize
a lot of the kind of stuff people would want to get rid of have a very...
unique audience these days...  (Don't worry, I'm not planning on ditching
my Ataris! ;^) )

I think we could certainly do that.  People would want to snack while
browsing, I'm sure. :^)

Henry - is there any issue with LUGOD itself putting something like this
together?  Should it be done simply by volunteers who then donate the
proceeds to LUGOD.  Any tax issues?


In the meantime, I'll contact the CS Club @ UC Davis, and Z-World...
