The following are in my garage and need to be somewhere else, for the
price of shipping from 98087.
Somebody was talking about IBM's serial disk (SSA) stuff recently. I
have three 7133 chassis, several boxes of 4G drives in sleds, cables,
and a variety of Microchannel controllers. Everything but the chassis
are shippable fairly easily. It was sold to me as working, but that was
ten years and several moves ago. I have no idea what shape they're in
now -- except that the foam on the chassis is sorta decaying -- and no
way to check. As sweet as big disk arrays are, I can't justify the heat,
power, and noise for seventy-two gigs of space.
AT&T 3B1 in the wedge chassis, with keyboard and mouse, 3.5 megs of
memory, 40(?) meg hard drive, and the rare ethernet card. Last known
working, and I can check. I'll need to reset the root password, at any rate.
Sun 386i. It passed self-test many years ago, I can check. It has the
keyboard/mouse/framebuffer card but I don't have a cable for it, so I
can't check that part. I also have a set of SunOS 4.0.1 floppies for it,
Five Sun 3/50's in various chassis. One of them has an expansion
daughterboard which brings the memory up to 8M. These are easy to check.
Local pickup ONLY: Alphaserver 2000 4/275. No disks, but I think it has
a couple sleds. Linux supported this at one time, although these days
Alpha Linux seems to have gone by the wayside. I don't think any of the
BSDs ever supported it. You could load NT4 on it and play solitaire, I
