    Good to see the thread so active. I'm thinking that I may just change the format, and do away with the list in the OP. I think just posting what you are looking to offer, or what you might be looking for is working quite well. It's really kind of managing itself. Thoughts? Would this be ok with everyone?

    It is too bad that each member cannot edit a "what they have" and "what they need" kind of post. It would be a full time job for you Paul to constantly edit the original post to include what people have, what has been sent, and what people are needing.

    Maybe you or anyone could set up a Google Docs to more or less fit this type of format. That is probably the only way it would work.

    That's a great idea!! Anyone willing to set up a google doc that anyone can access? Once someone does that, we can just transfer the current list to the doc, and provide a link to the doc in the OP. Any takers?

    Hey guys, I have a request if thats ok.

    I'm looking for a male to male 3.5mm mini jack cable. It usually ships with monitors but sometimes with other items.

    My old one busted as I pulled it out :(
    I know they are pretty cheap but was wondering if anyone here might have an extra I could have.

    Thanks TPU! :toast:

    Every tother forum just posts what they have. Get what you need and offer what you have on a first come, first serve basis. Not too hard to do.

    Yup, which is what I suggested. The document is just to help things be organized so that offered items do not get burried pages back.

    Excellent! :toast:

    Hi! I'm from the Internet
    Now we just need everyone to update their list on that spread sheet. And those who aren't on the sheet to add their list to it. Now I think people that are looking for stuff ahould only post in here and not on the spread sheet. Why I say that is because I know as sure as I am sitting here someone will put a entry on that sheet looking for something. Even though it should be common sense not to.

    Agreed. Please keep requests for items in the thread only, and please remember to offer an item or 2, just to keep the spirit of "Pay it forward".

    In light of this we need to put on the OP that if an item is requested, the requester must submit an item back no matter how small it is to keep the "Pay it forward" Going. LOL My wife already loves this thread cause she would like to see my closet empty!

    I don't want to demand that users give. I'd rather that the concept just moves people to give, as they are able. :)

    Anyone have a really quiet AM3 cooler lying around? I'm running one of my crunchers at my in laws, and the stock fan is driving them crazy. I really need to replace it, or they won't let me run it there, and I'm running short on funds after picking up a 2600k.

    really really hate spreadsheets. Not to mention that while i don't have tons of fancy and expensive things to give away, i have the same exact post on roughly 3 or 4 different forums. Makes it hard to update a spreadsheet as opposed to a post when things go in and out. With that said, out of sheer peer pressure i updated the spreadsheet with my meager offerings.

    I can send you over an older AMD copper-heatpipe stock cooler with an Arctic Cooling F8 PWM fan. The fan on it is about a year old, but AF warranties it for 7 years so I'm sure it's built to quality.

    I'm not sure what shipping will cost, but if you're in Tennessee it won't be too much, maybe $6 or $7 via USPS priority.
