Not me, but saw this mentioned elsewhere (from New York):

> Here's a list of the machines that need homes:
> - DEC/Digital MicroVAX 2000; this one doesn't have a disk, so it'd  
> have to be net booted over a LAVc.
> - Silicon Graphics Indy; I have two of these to move.
> - DEC/Digital DEC 3000 Alpha workstation
> - DEC/Digital Personal DECstation 5000/25
> - Sun SPARCstation 2; not sure if this one works anymore -- you can  
> have it for free
> - Sun SPARCstation 4
> - Sun SPARCstation 5
> - HP B160L
> - HP C240
> - IBM 43p
> - Sun Ultra 10
> - Silicon Graphics Indigo2; a few Express graphics systems and a  
> couple Impact graphics systems. The R10k Max Impact with a lot of  
> memory is something I'd like to get $50 for.
> Non-workstation stuff that I want to move:
> Chaparral Fibre Channel to SCSI bridge
> Brocade Silkworm 2800 -- two carcasses, with one supply in each --  
> one has the password set, and the other doesn't boot properly, and  
> I don't use Brocade, so I don't need them.
> I also have Fibre Channel and SCSI storage and accessories, which  
> would be more than the $20 each. I have 73GB SCSI drives in  
> UltraWide SCSI arrays, and I have 181GB FC drives in small  
> standalone enclosures. I do also have 1G/2G/4G Fibre Channel PCI  
> cards, cables, GBICs/SFPs, etc. If you need anything to do with FC/ 
> SCSI storage, let me know.
