Yard Sale: Snowblades

Today, I’m selling my genuine Salomon Snowblades (MiniMax). This is the, I believe, 3rd or 4th generation of Snowblades by Salomon. I also do not think they are still being produced, so this can be a collectors item. 😉

I haven’t used them in 4-5 years, as I outgrew them and I wanted real skis again. But they’ve seen quite a few slopes when I was younger.

They are definitely in need of some waxing and sharpening, which would cost around ~€20 in any decent ski shop.

Ideal for reckless youngsters. 😉

Yard Sale: Flat Panel Wall Bracket

Selling 15ish Flat Panel / Display wall mounts.



These are cheap solutions for hanging displays in the office or at home. We do not use them anymore because our installation company prefers other solutions from Audipack (which are 10 to 15 times more expensive; but are easier and faster to install).

Basically, it’s four screw you can easily drill in a wall (using a paper plan/mold, you know the correct distance depending on your display mounting system). 4 others are screwed in the display, and you then click them together. This is more easily done if you’re two (I don’t encourage doing this alone ;)).

This solution comes with pretty much every size of screw you’ll need, so it’s a one box-fits-all solution.

Lately I’ve been using them to keep my doors open (when it’s windy or when my Roomba is cleaning the place).

Yard Sale: wireless Sennheiser

For sale, a used Sennheiser HDR 160 headset.


Good condition, travelled the world with me, battery still is okay. This is not bluetooth, but has a transmitter station (2xAA battery) and thus can be used with anything (including laptop, old stereo, iPod, phone, etc) The headset itself has battery pack included, which is rechargeable.

I’m selling these because my (ex-)employer gave me even better Sennheiser headset the day they fired me. 😉

Hardware Networking

Yard Sale: P2P Wireless (TP-Link WA7510N)


For sale: two TP-Link WA7510N (5Ghz). These devices are about a year old, and served for about 10 months to provide internet from my apartment to a neighbouring building in Antwerp.

Because our office moved (all space got rent), internet is no longer required. Right now, I do not have a use-case for these devices (although, it was pretty cool, and I wish I could keep using them somehow).

For the past 10 months, except for some water in the UTP cable, this has been working perfectly, with a good and stable ping.

While I used them for Point-to-Point WiFi, they can be used in a wide variety of modes, including regular AP, etc. Just remember, they run at 5Ghz.

Apple Hardware Linux

Yard Sale: Mac Mini (G4)

I’m selling a Mac Mini 1.5Ghz G4 (PowerPC) with 512Mb ram. It has a 80Gb disk in it (7200 rpm I believe, but not sure). It runs Linux like a charm, and is a perfect server (and WAY faster than a Raspberry Pi).

IMG_20140418_104714 IMG_20140418_104725

I believe the latest version to run was Mac OS X Tiger (10.4).

It comes with the power adapter, a DVI to VGA adapter, and in the picture below is the optional WiFi adapter.
