Hey, let me know when they're powered off and available ;)
Seriously, do you know what the disposal deal is there? I used to know a
couple of 'tame' employees at SGI in the UK, but the policy there was that any
surplus (regardless of source / age / condition) was rendered inoperative and
then tossed in a dumspter to be hauled off for crushing.
I never did try prodding SGI in a museum capacity, but they certainly didn't
want any Great Unwashed computer collectors knocking on their door. Maybe
that's not company-wide policy though, so the Eagan site's better...
