I am in Iowa, and unfortunately, I am also still in HS (I'm a junior.
Don't worry, I know my fair share of computer stuff, been playing with
free/net/openBSD and slackware for 3 years now..CCNA, going for MCSE
(waste of time) and A+ certified to start with)  but I haven't been able
to find anything local. I was going to go ebay, but shipping is too
expensive for even a cheap box. So I turned to this list.

Where in the midwest are you?  I'm in northern indiana, and have more
sparc5's than i know what to do with.  If you're looking for something
to just do some console work on, a sparc5 might do it for you.  If not,
you might check to see if your school (i'm assuming a college in this
case) has a surplus outlet that might sell old computer stuff.  They can
be a goldmine sometimes.
