California:  "Scrounge the keyboards, memory, and drives from the machines 
being discarded."
"Scrounge up a parallel port for the printer server"
(forage, salvage, scavenge, etc.)

attempts to fire a colleague for scrounging stuff from the dumpsters!
(PDP, 5170s, VT100s, Northstar Horizon, Processor Technology Sol, Lisa, etc.)
