I've said it on my web site, and I'll say it here: Scrounging is not so much ongoing acquisition as it is a 'flow-thru' of goodies. Any tech-scrounger will eventually hit the point where they Just Need To Move Stuff Out.
Such is the case with me right now, so I'd like to take a moment here to feed back to the same 'techie food chain' that I've benefited from for so many moons.
Specifically: I've got the following FREEBIES available for PICKUP ONLY, NO SHIPPING in Kent, Washington. The only condition I place on the stuff is that whoever takes it needs to be taking it to USE IT, not to sell it for scrap.
--HP DraftMaster SX Plus large-format pen plotter, in excellent condition. Includes a whole slew of pens (condition unknown, but they've been kept capped in an indoor environment) and two packages of big paper (including a pack of Size D sheets). This item is not that heavy, and it is on wheels, but it is bulky and tall. You will need at least a small pickup truck with an open bed to move it properly.
--Compaq ProLiant 6500 server with twin Pentium Pro 200's. This was the box that was originally running my FTP archive (I've since upgraded to a later model of ProLiant). Working condition, 512MB RAM, and I think I could find a pair of rack slides and maybe even enough 4 gig drives to make a small array if you twist my arm enough.
--A pair of Sun SPARC-10 systems with at least 50MHz HyperSPARC CPU modules installed. These used to run part of my Internet presence before I upgraded to HP NetServers, so I know they work. RAM and hard drives included (though I will need to wipe the drives before they're taken as they still contain security-sensitive data).
If you'd like any or all of the goodies (hopefully all in one swell foop?), just drop me a line. Keep in mind that I don't currently subscribe to the CCTech or CCTalk lists, so you'll need to let me know via direct E-mail.
If, for whatever reason, your E-mail bounces you can give me a buzz on 253-639-2996.
Thanks in advance for helping me find this stuff a good home.
