I don't have a whole lot of SGI, much more Sun.  I can come up with a 
more detailed list when i have a chance to go through it all, a lot of 
it is stored about 30 miles away.

Indigo2 (teal, SI graphics, iirc)
Onyx RE2 (dual r4.4k, iirc)

For Sun:
Stack of miscellaneous VME boards.
Stack of Sparc5's 4-5 feet tall, maybe 15 of them? Many just barebones, 
no memory, no drives, no framebuffers
1-2 sparc 10's and 20's
4-5 lunchbox sparc's, IPC/IPX/Classic

Aforementioned nCUBE 2

I have cables, peripherals and monitors for a lot of, but not all of this.

I'm really unsure of what i want to part with and what i want to keep.  
Most of this stuff I haven't touched for years, and I need to cut down 
some bulk.  At the same time, machines like the Onyx are _almost_ too 
cool to let go of.  At this time, I have no interest in shipping any of 
it, but could potentially meet somewhere near here.  I will probably be 
traveling near Chicago, IL, Indianapolis, IN, Canton, OH, St. Louis, MO, 
and Traverse City, MI over the next few months, so if someone is 
particularly interested in something and between one of those places and 
South Bend, IN, we could possibly arrange a meetup.
