Had some good luck today while walking back from the shops. Someone seemed to be throwing out some old home office equipment and documents. From the pile, I collected the following:
1) Microsoft Office Professional 4.3 Boxed
2) Panasonic KX-P2123 Dot Matrix Printer.
There were some other goodies there too but they didn't interest me - mainly late 90s or early 00s scanner and inkjets, which is sadly a bit too late for my tastes.
The reason the printer is amusing was because I recently acquired a KX-P1123, a printer I had used a lot in the past. It works, but it wasn't complete. The top cover for paper feeding was missing.
This printer is in great condition. Not yellowed, very clean, has all the components attached. It works too after doing a quick self-test.
The boxed copy of Office seems to be missing something. I'm not sure what as I don't have anything else to reference it too. Possibly the disks. All the manuals seem to be inside though. I could find out with a bit of searching.
I tried digging through the other piles of paper there to see if there was anything else, but the further down I got the more it smelt like cat piss, and that wasn't something I felt like dealing with at 10pm in front of a strangers house.
Both will require some cleaning from dust and stuff, but hey, it's free!
Bad, late night, low light photos:
And some sloppily inserted, incorrectly selected paper size A4 paper for a quick test print, which is now blurry because the paper moved while taking the photo 🤣
