I went to get groceries yesterday, and it was raining but not hard. No big deal.

So when I pull back into the parking lot at my apartment complex, a large metal object catches my eyes.

"Holy shit I think that's a computer! I better run grab it and get inside to see if I can salvage anything!!"

So I park and run over to it. I get a few yards away from it and see what it actually was..... Someone's nasty ass broken microwave.

I got so excited and it all came crashing down after a few seconds

    @irene Not worth it lol

    I wanted something that was basically plug and play, maybe do a bit of hardware replacement and troubleshooting, but nothing extremely difficult 😂😂

    You can take some parts out of it and use it for future projects. Make sure not to be a messi tho.

    @Stuxnet same here, but you can still let it stay somewhere in your house and dissect it when your exam phase is over.

    Ni🅱️, send that microwave to me! I've actually been trying to actually buy an old microwave for just the components inside. There's a high power, high voltage step-up transformer in there (230V-2kV or 120V-2kV, depending on where you live), a big fat high voltage capacitor, a magnetron and some other stuff.
