   Well, it's been about two years, so I think I'm safe.

   It sounds like the PSUs are either hazardous nor interesting, so I
will toss them. I might save all the cages, though, so the empty chassis
looks better once I repurpose it.

   And I do appreciate your frankness about cannibalizing this thing.
I'll save the SCSI jumper cables. :7)
