I sent you private email, am sending via the list also since I am very
interested in the jbods and the E10k. Would like to discuss coming to West
Lafayette - if the equipment is still available, of course.

I've got access to some IBM H50 systems that are being retired from
work, with 4x332MHz processors, 3+GB ram (whatever the max is, 3.25 or
3.5GB I can't remember), some disks, and a 10/100 NIC.  The disks have
been erased, but they'll run up through AIX 5.3 I think.

I'm not going to ship these because of weight, but shipping one or two
parts from one is probably doable.  Cost will be not unreasonable, but
not free. :)  I can hold onto them for a week or two probably, but not
much longer than that.

I'm also try to rid myself of my old 1Gb, MTI Fiberchannel gear.   I've
got a switch or two, and several 12-disk (1.6") 3U JBODs with 36GB and
50GB 1.6" tall FC-AL 1GB disks.  I could pull and ship disks from this
if you want them in multiples of 12, but I don't want to try to ship
this either.  These will probably be around for a month or so before I
have to do something I don't want to with them. :(  Make offers..

Also, if by any chance, someone is interested in driving here and
picking up a frame or 3 of IBM SP nodes (quad 375MHz POWER3-II thin
nodes) or an E10k, let me know...

These are in West Lafayette, IN, USA (47906).
