True enough, but I'm happy to give one of JP's Octanes a new home.

Towards that end, I'm going to need a couple of things - perhaps
someone here will have them cheap?

1) 13w3 output to VGA monitor adapter
2) Adapter or cable to go between the 68pin SCSI-3 out port to my
50pin centronics on my Apple CD150 (last external I have. Slow but
steady :)
3) RAM for the Octane - the machine will have 512MB but more is always
4) Drive carriers? I scrounged a cheap ($17!) used 73gb SCA drive for
it and can probably rig it up as the system disk, but it would be good
to get carriers so I can fully populate the machine.
