    The small boxes only one well protected audio card. A newer, powerful video card would not even fit. I say go for the big box and add some bubble wrap to prevent damage. I am sure it will get filled up (at least I know I will add some goodies to it).

    There's small, medium, and large. I say use the smallest one that you can fit everything into.

    Ok, so I took the picture of the contents before attempting to stuff everything into the box...which is a lot smaller than it looks when it's folded flat...

    As a result, all of this:


    for some reason did not fit in here:


    So no safety goggles or random Dell power adapter. (and no, the HDD isn't going in the box, it's just to hold the top closed)

    Now, as for a list of what's in there.... ...ummmm....that is a very good question. To be completely honest, I don't even know what everything there is.

    Let's see, since everyone flipped over the drive bays a while ago when I mentioned them in my mightyMite thread, I threw in a couple of those; one IDE, one SATA.
    There's some velcro wrap thingies, some plastic wrap thingies...some thermal paste..a few random cables...a Zalman fan speed controller...a bluetooth dongle...some aluminum rings from 3.5" HDDs...a solar panel...a couple 2.5" HDD platters..umm, some sort of door-lock-thingy that I picked up at a garage sale probably about 10-12 years ago. Umm, a battery charger.....some 3.5" enclosures from a couple media card readers..a spray top..umm...a monitpr wipe...a couple adapters if you ever happen to be on an old, like, 727 or something...oh, a speedometer...a xenon-bulb flashlight (pretty nice, but it takes those annoying R332 batteries, or whatever the hell those things are).

    And if anyone can tell me what on earth that stupid thing in the middle with the RS-232 pass-through is, you will have my eternal thanks. That thing has been sitting in a box ever since I found it in the bowels of a Salvation Army storage warehouse, oh, 14 years ago?, and I have never been able to figure out what the thing is.

    Oh, and the big circuit board is a broken power supply/inverter from a Samsung SyncMaster 225BW. After more research, it looks like it might just need it's capacitors replaced, so if anyone needs that, awesome.

    Shipped this morning.

    ...and on my way back from the post office, I realized I didn't put a notebook in it..or write anything in one, for that matter...idk, did we even decide to do that for ours?

    Also, after packing it up last night (and running out of space), I realized that there was a whole other pile of stuff that I completely forgot about Oh well, I guess that'll be for another box.

    Incidentally, if there's too much stuff for one box at a stop, how about we split it into two boxes? (and so on and so forth)
