I have a ton of classic and not-so-classic computers and accessories to 
find new homes for. Since I don't have the time or money to ship any of 
this, you need to be willing to pick up in the Seattle, WA area. Most of 
this stuff at least powered up the last time I was able to get to it, 
although there are likely some TLC issues on most or all of them that 
need to be attended to such as missing RAM or hard drives. One of the 
C-64s doesn't power up and a couple of the color NCD terminals don't 
have monitors or have monitors that are futzing, but all of the base 
units works.

Some of this stuff I'm willing to let go for free, some of it I'd like 
to see at least $5 for. And there are a couple of items (the Auspex, the 
Sun Ultra 1 and disk pack, the Apple IIgs, the Cisco router) I would 
like to get a bit more than that from. Especially the Auspex, the 
SPARCbook, and the Cisco router.

Please e-mail me with what you're interested in, how much you'd be 
willing to pay, and what your schedule is like. I don't usually have any 
time during business hours to try to meet people places, unless it's at 
my home in Monroe on one of the days I'm working from home. Evenings and 
weekends are best bet if you're not willing to drive to Monroe. If I 
have to drive a load of equipment somewhere, I'm probably going to want 
to charge enough for it to make it worth my while.
