The great internet migratory box of electronic junk

This is for all electronics freak that have a box of stuff

From their website:

“TGIMBOEJ, The Great Internet Migratory Box Of Electronics Junk is a
progressive lending library of electronic components. An internet meme
in physical form halfway between P2P zip-archive sharing and a flea
market. It arrives full of wonderful (and possibly useless) components,
but you will surely find some treasures to keep. You will be inspired
look through your own piles, such as they are, and find more mysterious
components that clearly need to be donated to the box before it is
passed on again.”

Let’s share our junk !! 🙂
