[UFO Chicago] hardware

I'm not really concerned about anyone else hoarding or placing a dollar
amount on any of the HW that is useless to me anyway.  I figured it would be
a way for us to 'recycle, reduce and reuse'.  Besides, I need to get it gone
and would like to see it put to good use, and I may be able to acquire an
item that I need in the process.

I like the idea of a hardware "swap" but I'm afraid of hoarding. Not
something I'm worried about with the current group, but I'd hate to see
someone grabbing up a bunch of things they'll never use just because it
looks good.  Like I said, this doesn't really worry me, but what about
setting an arbitrary amount- say a dollar - for anything taken, with
proceeds to go to UFO projects?

Ok, the problems I see with this are:
1. It'd have to be on the honor system, because who wants to deal with
tracking it?
2. UFO receiving money may be not such a great idea...
3. Returns of things that didn't work out?  Money back or take on your own
4. There must be a 4, 5, 6, etc.

I don't endorse this concept, just tossing it out for everyone to chew on.
