Oh comon people, you know you want it! :)

>My employer moved from Token Ring to Ethernet a few years ago. 
>Finally, the rooms used to store the old 3,000+ port network will be 
>needed for something else.
>Its all IBM. We have bridges, 8270s (managed token ring switches), 
>CAUs (controlled hubs), LAMs (expansion options for the CAUs...25 
>extra ports per LAM), a few MAUs (uncontrolled hubs)... the CAUs 
>have fiber options, the 8270s I think have [fiber] ATM cards and 
>some have fiber token ring cards. All have copper token ring. This 
>is a mix of type1, type2, rj-11, and biconic fiber. Mostly RJ-11.
>We also have three very large ATM switches, but they will probably 
>be going a separate way.
>Here's the catch. You gotta take it all. I'm guesstimating 30 cubic 
>yards...its been a while since I've been over there but I'll of 
>course give a more accurate approximation to anyone interested. 
>Serious offers only, please. I don't want to bring up an option only 
>to have it fall through. 1-5 month timeframe.
>How much you offer isn't important. Minimum bid is $1...we actually 
>need the magical $1. Everyone in IT would like to see it go to a 
>better place than a landfill...
>Mid Hudson Valley, New York...2 hours north of NYC.
