There are other risks, too, if it's not just a hobby.
When both are in IT...downsizing is double-indemnity,
as we found out.
But, the happiest couples I know are the ones where
intellectual interests and hobbies are shared. With
us, that covers books, movies, computer games, and
rpg's. I'm the hardware geek, though having been a
computer guy, he's OK with it, so long as I don't
let it get out of hand (which it has).
And on that note, I have the following... :-)
Tatung U2 clone, rack-mount, no cpu or HD. Believe
on-board SCSI is bad, but otherwise OK. Free to any-
one in the SF Bay area that wants it. Will consider
shipping for cost + couple of bucks for my trouble--
but this puppy is heavy!
I have a lot of older ProTools and related audio gear
for sale. Also have a bunch of Mac stuff (NuBus and
PCI PowerMac era--CPUs, other parts) that I'd like to
get rid of. Ping me if you'd like a list.
If anyone needs Sparc 2 parts, ping me. Mobos/CPUs
are dead, but floppies, PSUs, PROMs (maybe) are ok
(2 of each), you can have it for the cost of shipping.
I still have a ton of 32MB sticks of SS20/U1/U2 RAM,
some is tested, some is not, but I doubt that any of
it is bad, since it came from a reliable source.
Make me an offer.
I also have an HP 5L printer (works fine with CUPs, but
WinXP drive sucks you-know-what), and one LaserWriter
12/640 with another chassis (minus processor board),
and a spare draft-quality partial toner cartridge.
The 12/640 needs some TLC. I had it working pretty
well, but then it started mis-feeding and I just
don't have the cycles to work on it. I have all the
service documents to go with it. Prefer pick-up;
make me a low-ball offer on either.
Trades considered. Looking for:
* Cable/DSL Wireless AP combo firewall & NAT (would
like to get rid of my PC FW, since I am moving to
a smaller place)
* small unmanaged 10/100 switch like a 4 or 8 port
* any interesting Mac stuff of beige G3 era or more
recent (wishful thinking)
I'm in North San Jose, for those in the immediate area
(Cisco land); zip 95134. Feel free to forward to anyone
you might think may be interested, especially regarding
the audio (it's the most useful stuff outside of the
