There was a PDP11/23 with two rl02's in the physic's commons at my school being
used as a planter, i wouldn't have known about it but i walked by the room and
saw it... anyway, i went up to the physics chair, and asked if i could have it.
he said... ok. i walked out of there with a pdp11/23 an asr-33 and a bunch of
RK05's not to mention 3 books about the pdp11 arch. on the other hand, the
school also had a sgi i2 that has been sitting in a closet, but since it has an
asset tag, they wouldn't give it to me... so i guess ymmv
