Heck I'll give someone who'd give them a good home two of those... well  
not quite... they are actually Crimson VGX and VGXT... the VGXT is a 10  
span with 256 MB of RAM a 2GB disk a 3GB disk, FDDI, CDROM, MIPS Pro  
7.2, IRIX 6.2 with patches, 20" SGI monitor, keyboard and mouse.   
R4400-150.  The VGX is for parts... it has all working parts except  
Power Supply... 64MB RAM, VGX 5 span, R4400-150, PowerSeries skins, 2  
2GB drives.  One twistlock 20A power cord, one plain 15A power cord  
(special mod).

But... conditional on giving a good home and never scrapping them... I  
love these things too much.... they just gobble way too much juice.

I'm in Westchester County NY... they are in a storage locker in  
Ossining NY.  You haul...

To any purists.. I put a lot of work into the OS installs so I'd  
recommend leaving it alone since the compiler and patches already work  
as is and it's neatly installed so that /usr is on the second drive  
(which took a lot of finagling and using fx from IRIX 5.3)
