I tend to agree - I had a good time pulling out my various SparcStationms (5/10/20s), UltraSparcs (1/2/5/10/30/60) and deciding what to keep/what to offer up at TCF. I walked the flea market and found nothing interesting:

Printers - I've got several good, solid printers
Monitors - Too many to justify the shelf space
Computers - still too many, but I've made a good dent in reducing the sheer number of systems
Accessories/keyboards/mice - crammed in all the nooks and cranies around the systems in the basements

I'm going to focus on reducing my number of systems to something manageable, and each with some sort of purpose. Far too many times in the past I took in older equipment because I once wanted it, not because I had a particular use for it...

In a way I'm loking forward to the testing of ech box before I decide on a final disposition for it (on my network, on the shelf, or out the door).
