That is a pretty good idea. So here goes:
I am always looking for hard drives and RAM to upgrade various CFZ computers; however, we are hoping to provide computers for free to various impecunious researchers across the world, so any surplus computers (laptops and desktops) will always find a good home.
We would also like a laser printer, a SM58 vocal microphone, and some microphone leads. A blue screen (for chroma keys) would also come in handy as would any studio lights (portable and not)
I would like the following software (legit or not)
Adobe Acrobat 6 or above
Adobe Photoshop CS
A full version of fruity loops
Command and Conquer Red Alert II (but that's just for me)
Fishtank filters and lighting units
Water testing kits/dipsticks
A large parrot cage
By the way, I cannot remember if I publically thanked Syd Henley for the tanks he brought us at the WW, or Colin Banks for what he brought. If not, I apologise profusely, and thank both you guys now from the bottom of my heart...
This list will, no doubt, be updated regularly (especially if it works)
