[rescue] [with subject this time darn it] Spring cleaning: cheap stuff, free stuff, it's all got to go

This is stuff that needs to be somewhere else, _quickly_.

I'm willing to sell it, barter it, give it away, whatever.  If I owe you
(stuff, favors, karma) then please just remind me -- I have a terrible
memory for this sort of thing, which probably gives off the impression
that I'm an ungrateful bastard.  I *am* in fact a bastard, but I'm not
ungrateful, so please feel free to jog my memory and remind me that I
owe you if that's the case, and I'll try to make good on it.

So yeah, sure, I'd like to make a little coin on some of this (and I
really don't want to *lose* too much money shipping it out) but I'm
more concerned with putting it in the hands of people that can use it --
and in some small way repaying sunhelp-rescue for parts, advice,
amusement, and camaraderie.

Onward.  Here's the hastily-compiled, innacurate and largely useless list:


2 RDI Powerlite laptops, 1 power supply.

One of them powers up and boots SunOS 4; the other
seems to be dead, so either it's pilot error or it's
destined to be a spare parts supply.  The dead one
is missing the flip door on the back.


Apple 170 laptop (no battery)
Apple 140 laptop
power supplies for both.  Neither seems to power up,
once again this is either pilot error or they're
spare parts bins.


HP C2976P external SCSI enclosure with a probably-dead
4G drive in it.  This is roughly the same size as a Sun 411.

HP 2943A external SCSI enclosure with a CDROM drive in
it, condition unknown.  This thing apparently takes an
external power supply and I don't have one for it.


30 ft heavy-duty cable -- wide SCSI, it appears.


SGI Challenge S - config unknown
SGI Indy R5000 - config unknown

Looks to me like both have memory and CPUs, but only one
has a disk and I haven't tried to power up either.

Best Data SmartOne 336 FLX modem

Oh stop laughing, it gets worse.

Toshiba PCX1100 Cable Modem

Farallon Netopia PN 635


Cisco 772 ISDN Router (4 ethernet ports) with power brick

Belkin Apple Printer cable: 6 ft, 8-pin mini-DIN male-male, F2X024-06 sealed

2 8mm drives in big (and kind nice) external SCSI enclosures.
These look like IBM models; they're probably Exabyte 8200's or
something similar.  I don't know if they work.  Probably not worth
it for the drives, just the enclosures.


USR Sportster External modem, model #839, 33.6 faxmodem -- still sealed!

	HDI-SCSI to CN50, 2 ft (I think this is what old Mac laptops use)


Power supplies from an old Dell server -- three supplies plus a logic
board apparently designed to keep power working if 1/3 are dead.  Heavy.
Awkward.  Probably not worth shipping.

Box of old SCSI disks: were working with one exception, see below:

	3x Seagate ST1480N (Sun 424)
	1x Conner CP3540
	1x Quantum ProDrive ES P008-0073414

Data Switch: HDD15 + DB9 + DIN5, 4-way, rotary switch


A cluster of stuff for people running thinnet -- a few cables,
some connectors, a couple of transceivers (I think one is
thinnet-AUI, not sure about the other)
