Umm, I think we have two of these, with keys, sitting by the dumpster at work.  
Handful of video adapters, SCSI cards, token ring adapters, even a 
PrestoServe card in one of them.

I'm kind of surprised anyone would be interested in these things.  But if you 
are out there, let me know and I can try asking the powers...   I may get 
points for cleaning up the place :P  (I got a 7012-390 and 7043-150 from work 
once decommed, so the likelihood is good.  There's a 7012-E20 that was just 
decommed, and still the likelihood of a few 7015-R50's in 12-18 months.)

While I'm on the subject, there is a couple pallets of 7043-140's that they 
want to get rid of for ~$150 (mostly 332's with 256MB, 10/100 ethernet, 
various graphics, 4.3G disk, and P200 tube).  Is this a good price?
