Hi Gerard,

In the UK we call them "skips". Not sure what the rest of the world 
calls them. [Large metal junk containers placed at the back of large 
buildings near the other bins. They're usually hired rather than owned. 
Perfectly good computers are often found within.] Most of my CRT 
monitors come from skips.

There's no shame in skipdiving when you can't afford hardware. :)
