I have posted pictures of these on my flickr account:


For those who have asked, I'm looking for $250 each for the Nova 4 and 
disk/tape subsystem sets.

Other things I have available that I didn't think of in time for my 
first post:

"Diva disk system", disk-pack drives.  There are 3 of these I don't know 
much about these besides the fact they're HEAVY, and supposedly use are 
a Trident disk drive (?). Would like $50 total for all 3.

Compaq ES40.  One has 12GB ram, the other I think has 16GB ram.  Both 
have quad 866MHz 21264 CPUs.  Want $400 for the 12GB ram one, and $500 
for the 16GB ram one.  I've got some 36GB disks and disk sleds for each 
of these.

One of my PDP-11/23 systems has a dual RX02 and RL02 drive attached.  I 
also have a picture of this system in the flickr photo set I linked to 
above. $200

I'm currently going through and compiling a list of stuff, and matching 
it to people, so everyone who has sent me mail should hear from me soon.
