[rescue] Closet cleaning

After six months of unemployment, I had to move from a 2500-square-foot
house to an 850-square-foot apartment. I'm settled in enough now that I can
start working on clearing out the two storage units I had to cram 90% of my
computers into. I'm still unemployed, so some of the more valuable stuff
will be going straight to Ebay because I need the money, but I'd like to
offer as much of the rest as possible to the list here. This isn't a
commercial venture but it's also obviously a bit more than just a closet
cleaning, so I'm going to start out with the few items that I've extracted
so far and await Mr. Bill's ruling on whether it's cool for me to post more
or whether there's a better venue for it.

If there's anything in particular you're looking for, I may very well have
it, although I can't make any guarantees about when I may find it again. I
have machines and pieces for HP9000/3xx, /7xx, /8xx, RS/6000, VAXen,
ISA/EISA/VESA/PCI, DECstations, Alphas, MVME, SGI, and of course Suns. Wish
lists welcome if you can be patient.
