I have a Canon EF-S 17-85mm f4-5.6 IS USM lens that I don’t need any more (assuming my new lens continues to work!). Does anyone want to make me an offer for it?

I have a 1GB PC2-6400 SODIMM surplus to requirements. If anyone can make good use of it, would they care to make me an offer?

I've bought a new camera. Does anyone want to buy my old one? Now sold.

It's a Canon EOS 350D. Specifications. In short: a very capable consumer digital SLR from a few years back.

From the original kit:

  • EOS 350D body
  • Body cap
  • EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 II USM lens (almost identical to this one)
  • Canon NB-2LH battery
  • Charger
  • USB cable (but I recommend you use a card reader instead)
  • TV cable
  • Manual
  • Software CDs (you will probably want to downloaded updated versions from Canon)


  • Equivalent 3rd party battery
  • 1GB Sandisk compact flash card
  • 256MB compact flash card
  • RS60-E2 cable remote
  • UV filter to fit lens above (if you believe in that sort of thing)

(The remote and extra battery are not compatible with my new camera, hence their inclusion here.)


  • Bought mid 2005
  • About 20,000 shutter activations
  • Eyecup is getting loose
  • Firmware version is 1.0.3
  • Sensor has been cleaned with a blower once
  • Some dirt on mirror (?or focussing screen) - does not appear in photos!
  • Lens slightly noisy when zooming

If you're interested, make me an offer. Come round and try it out if unsure.

I also have a broken PowerShot SD40 and associated gubbins (charger, two batteries, some cabling) if anyone is interested in that (probably for free).

I've decided the three-piece suite has to go; it takes up too much space and we can do better with the futon and a few more sensibly sized chairs. What's the best way to get shot of such things? Does anyone want it? The individual chairs look like this (young lady and penguin not included) and the sofa is similar; it's about ten years old and is in reasonable nick.

  • Two 64MB PC100 DIMMs. One is Kingston KVR100X64C2/64, the other anonymous. Haven't been in use for a while now.
  • Two 256MB PC400 DIMMs. Both are Kingston KVR400X64C25/256. In use until a recent upgrade.
  • Creative Graphics Blaster CT6710 video card. 16MB, AGP, nVidia RIVA TNT chip, dates from the late 90s. Unused for years.

People who can collect preferred, since I'm terrible at getting round to posting things. (If you can collect and are on my way to work or something you might find I deliver.)

I also have a Crucial 1GB PC400 DIMM, only not in use because my motherboard has a duff socket (see earlier postings) [edit: now sold]. I hope to get around to inspecting the socket for further cruft some time but if someone makes me a sensible offer for the DIMM first (Crucial sell them for around £30) I'm likely to say yes since it's also possible the socket is permanently damaged.

  • Books for sale (make me an offer):
    • Deep Future (Stephen Baxter)
    • The Lost Continent (Bill Bryson)
    • What If - Fifteen Visions Of Change for Britain's Inner Cities (Hutton, Brown, etc; ed. Carpenter et al).
    • What If (hardback) and More What If (various authors; ed. Robert Cowley)
    • Bloody Mary (Garth Ennis/Carlos Ezquerra)
    • Orbiter (Warren Ellis et al)
  • Books to give away:
    • The Size Of Thoughts (Nicholson Baker)
    • Neanderthal (Douglas Palmer)
    • Manual Of Karate (E J Harrison) (really ancient - if you actually want to learn Karate, join a club and get a modern book)
    • The World In 2003 (The Economist)
    • Eye Of The Zodiac (E C Tubb)
    • Rork! (Avram Davidson)
    • A Spell For Chameleon (Piers Anthony)
    • The Dilbert Principle (Scott Adams)

The first What If is a bright orange collection of essays on inner cities from a few years ago, including one from the Scottish gentleman who risks losing the next election. The other two are collections of speculations on the consequences of various historical battles going the other way. The for-sale books vary from almost new to reasonable in condition, the giveaway books have a bit more of an air of age to them.
