freecycle.org

http://freecycle.org/ looks to be a halfway decent community for trading free junk. i'm going to see if i can find an old directTV dish for my wifi project. today I got DD-WRT loaded on a V4 WRT54G but i'm disappointed with the stock antennas being no better than an internal PCMCIA card. time to use those detachable antenna connections! see endgaget article. hmm.. looks like comercial available 16db antennas as cheep as $45 on pacwireless.com

I'm a big fan of freecycle. I'm actually going to list some more stuff on there this morning.

all you need is a trip to the dollar store, or some asian cookware place. for less than $10 could double your distance. see http://k2h.blogspot.com/2006/10/asian-cookware.html#comments
