I will piggy back to your post and add that we have got here a 595 that
also needs a new house, and I am just too busy to ship it so it must be
pick up only. We have also an ultra 1 a few SUN monitors and probably a
another pile of Sparc 5s (last time I got a pile of Sparc 10's and 20's
they went pretty quickly). And last but not least a MasPar, and a Onyx.

All of them for pick up only, unless you can deal with delayed shipping
due to my absence of short term memory. If anyone knows of a worthwhile
place to donate stuff like this (educational places?) lemme know, as I tend
to get shit loads of stuff that is other ways destined to the dumpster or
to the evil surplus place in our campus :(.

I am not very good at replying every post on time since I am in Ph.D.
thesis hell so bear with me, but every month or so I get new stuff so I
can donate a bunch of sparc/IBM/other risc stuffs to people who are going
to use it.
