    I ended up winning it, I’ll happily pass on some stuff from it once I collect it. Will replace my other iffy sis chipset intel build with faulty gpu and other mysteries.

    At my parents place, there's an ancient Sun or SGI keyboard that someone can have for free if they can collect. I don't remember much about it, other than the cable insulation was a bit iffy near the join, and the keyboard is for a very old model workstation...maybe the Sun 'pizza box'?

    Nice! They're good units with a bit of restoration and checking over. If in that CD bundle there is one for the MSI FM radio (with a serial on the sleeve), please image it and let me know? I tried to find the name of the application but MSI have closed all that info up now.

    Heh, I think one is good if you get a couple of original controllers that haven't been Mario Party'ed to death!

    I know, but I tease because the vast majority of controllers I see have been mashed to death

    Yeah the N64 control stick is notoriously sheit. It's like someone played 5 years of continues track & field on the C64 on them... All jokes aside, I have come across and even have a few mint/new in box N64 controllers and as long as you treat them nice, they are pretty good, not saying GC good, but they are okay.

    I have a few rubbish controllers new gears and a bowl is about $15-20, makes them sound.

    I have big old meat pudding hands so the original trident controllers are a bit uncomfortable
    but 20 bucks sounds a lot cheaper :thumbup:

    Yeah, I feel a bit priviledged that I was able to get a N64 for basically nothing, with 2 controllers in very good condition and a few games.

    I "paid" for it by repairing the PSU in a small surround DVD/blu-ray speaker system, just needed a new bridge rectifier and replacement fuse.
