For everything in this list we are accepting both donations of items and lending of items.

Donations - D

A straight up donation, where SkullSpace gets ownership of the item.

Lending - L

A form of borrowing where the owner retains ownership but lends the item to skullspace indefinitely. The owner will have to sign a piece of paper stating that a) if if gets broken, SkullSpace or whomever broke it isn't liable, the owner is basically boned and b) the owner must provide at least 30 days notice before removing the item from the space (taking it back), in order to allow SkullSpace to obtain a replacement.

If we get it, please move the item to the Wishlist Archive.

Microphone Something you can clip on your clothes, this is for presenters giving talks. Something suitable to feed into a recording setup. $?? No

This could double as a media centre for playing music when we are not presenting. In this case it needs a sound card. $?? No
