I've recently been offered a working E10K for Aurora (Fedora Linux on
SPARC) at no charge, but the catch is that I have to either get it or
get it delivered. They quoted out a delivery charge of ~$3200.00 US.
While this is probably a pretty decent bargain for a functional E10K,
its a LOT of money for Aurora, which isn't even a non-profit, and would
have to solicit the funds from donations.
I was considering renting a truck and trying to get it myself, but I
have no experience doing this. Does anyone have any advice to offer

"We must not confuse dissent with disloyalty. We must remember always
that accusation is not proof and that conviction depends upon evidence
and due process of law. We will not walk in fear, one of another. We
will not be driven by fear into an age of unreason, if we dig deep in
our history and our doctrine, and remember that we are not descended
from fearful men -- not from men who feared to write, to speak, to
associate and to defend causes that were, for the moment, unpopular."
-- Edward R. Murrow, March 9, 1954
