Sennheiser HD-448s - brand new (out of box, used for like ten minutes) - $90, shipping included

wasn't a big fan of these. maybe because they're closed headphones. or maybe because I just want something better, for home listening. I'm going to get something a little more high end on eBay. make me an offer if you don't want to pay 90?

That keyboard would be neat if it had a "Windows key" ... I like using the Windows key for WM keybind because I can be fairly sure no other application uses them ... (I had some conflict problems with ALT keys ...).

Sucks.
In the EU, webshops are obligated to accept returns for any and all items within 7 days. Even if opened. The rationale is that the customer must have the opportunity to inspect the item.
They usually charge for shipping though, which is fair.
This is why I actually prefer to buy stuff online. "Normal" shops are not obligated to accept returns.

So my Thinkpad broke, meh. I salvaged some stuff though.

Free for any TTF member that can use it:

- T61 Keyboard (US-intl), 'bout a 1/2 years old, not used that much
- Core 2 Duo T8300 CPU
- 4965AGN miniPCI Wifi Card
- Two 2GB DDR2 SO-DIMMs
- DVD drive
- 2.5" hard drive bay (to replace the DVD-drive, so you have two drives. Hot-swappable in Windows)

I also have a whole bunch of disks, 2.5" and 3.5", not sure 'bout sizes, I think the largest are a 250GB 2.5" and 400GB 3.5".

i'm selling a motherboard on ebay that has 6 sata ports and would run using carpetsmoker's cpu and ram! (hint hint) i might ask carpetsmoker for his cpu, in which case i'll offer my compatible pentium cpu for free.

i'm also selling a nice 39t chainring on ebay.

That mainboard won't run on my CPU, the socket's different (T8300 is a laptop socket, PGA4-something, not LGA755), the memory is also different, since they're SO-DIMMS.

carpet > waffles... you are the best. will put my x60 back together this week and try it out.

drinks on me next time i'm passing through the low countries... likely in next 1-2 years i'll be in antwerp and could easily make a side trip to you (if you care, that is). i met up with asemi a few years ago in boston so there's precedent for ttf meetups!

carpet, i'm actually going to be in NL next week... amsterdam on the 18th and the hague for a bit on the 19th... think i'm flying out evening of the 19th. so not really close to you and a pretty quick trip. but if you are in the area could definitely meet up

The X230 is virtually new. A friend got it for his dad, but he couldn't figure out how to use it. It was probably only used a few times.

ThinkPad X230 - 2306-CTO
Intel Core i5-3210M Processor (3M Cache, up to 3.10 GHz)
12.5" HD (1366x768) LED Backlit Display
Intel HD 4000 Integrated Graphics
4 GB DDR3 - 1600MHz (1 DIMM)
320GB Hard Disk Drive, 7200rpm
ThinkPad 1x1 b/g/n Wireless LAN
Bluetooth 4.0 with Antenna
720p HD Camera
Backlit Chiclet Keyboard
UltraNav with Fingerprint Reader
6 Cell ThinkPad Battery X44+
65W AC Adapter

Warranty (depot) until 2014-04-06.

Originally $949.00. Would sell for $575 on eBay (ref).

I'd sell it to a TTF member for $450 firm, check or fee-free Paypal only.

i'm probably there - give me a night to sleep on it.

i'm just debating whether i can find enough use out of it given i have a work laptop with similar form factor.

if someone gets there first so be it.

thought about it.

while it's a good deal, i can afford it, and i would love this thing to death, minimalism bias consuming me right now and i don't think i can justify it (also, carrying two laptops while traveling, plus tablet, kind of outweighs the benefits of having small laptops).

hope it finds a good home

that's mighty tempting considering x301s go for not much less than $450 on eBay. but looking at the x230 keyboard next to the x220 I stand by my derision of the chiclets (it's not even those so much, it's the stupid function keys, missing pause/break, weird page up/down and print screen locations, etc.). think I'm gonna hold out a couple of years for an x220.

Pretty much all laptops seem to suck these days. If you have non-sucking (working) laptop from a few years ago, I would hold on to it ...

@Nestor: Cool. Not sure of that's going work out though. I'll send you a mail later, when I'm slightly less drunk.

carpet - no worries if not... i will be back within the next few years for sure.

it's a business trip so i wouldn't be that much fun. on my schedule only the 19th would work. i'm in the hague for the day and taking the train back to amsterdam at some yet undetermined time in the evening.

i will be hunting down as much good belgian-style beer i can reasonably drink (that i can't get here - lots of gueuze). and hopefully try some good dutch stuff. as i said... beer is on me if we meet up.

Right. at 11AM I have a job interview, this is my second interview, and I'm supposed to do an assignment, not sure how long that'll take (I forgot to ask...) but I doubt it'll be shorter than 2-3 hours.
It's also almost a 2 hour trip (& 2 hours back), so if you just have time for a quick drink, then that doesn't really seem worth the journey... :-(

my grandmother passed away this morning, so there's probably only a 50/50 shot of me going anyway.

Cool. Getting as much as you can for free is definitely the Dutch attitude (It's called 'going Dutch' with a reason), so you'll fit right in.

I also hope I'm not the cause of your stroopwafel addiction :-(

no i loved them before, but rarely had the chance to find authentic ones.

there is town close to my hometown that had a lot of dutch immigrants, that is where i had my first authentic stroopwafels.

So, now my desktop PC broke down. Argh, I've been having the worst of luck with my hardware the last few months.

I got a small Zotac nano system, so I have a bunch of spare parts. From memory, I should have:

4x2GB DDR2 DIMM @lucas: This will fit your mainboard!
AMD Phenom II X4 920 CPU
Club3D HD5750 (about 2/3 years old, at the time the fastest fanless videocard I could find)
Scythe Kabuto CPU cooler
SeaSonic 500W PSU
Nexus real silent 120mm & 80 (or 92?)mm fan

20 euro seems like a fair ttf price. Shipping to the states would be 10 euro, so that makes a total of 30 euro. That's USD41.52. Since 42 is my favourite number (obviously), we'll round it to that :)

I have an intel 320 series 2.5-inch 120 gb SSD for sale; it's the same one I bought from asem a few years back, but I'm no longer using it... I have no idea what these things are worth these days, but I think €50 with free shipping world-wide is a friendly ttf price?

The product number is: SSDSA2CW120G3 ... I think it's this one, but I'm not sure:
