Sack of LED components: help me determine if they are worth a damn.

You know the deal: went into the electronics store as a newbie, came out a newbie with a sack of LED components made up mostly of 8 segment numbers. I bought them thinking at worst I could bolt them on top of something when I needed "dead computer" parts, but if I could make them light up, it'd be the coolest.
I'm sure there's a good page someplace out there in the haystack telling me everything I need to know about how to drive these but I've got no clue where to start. The nature of this sack makes me think maybe they're salvage and are just junk and can be thoughtfully disposed of...
