I went to the same show when it was in cobb galleria a few years ago.  
Blah as well.

I go to ga state and when I found out they were taking our shell 
accounts off a 6 way sun ss1000 I emailed them saying I could put it to 
use. But it turns out they're still using it today for faculty email.

I went to a dot bomb auction (broad river) a couple years back.  Lots 
and lots of goodies there especially if you like sun and cisco stuff, 
but the place was jam packed with people who thought the stuff was worth 
more than I did so I ended up with no goodies.
