Due to being geographically close and attentive to nekochan.net, I got the
following Onyx 3xxx gear for free about a month ago:

8 C bricks with r12k/400
2 Router bricks
2 I bricks
1 G brick (populated with one pipe - the display card is the 8 head)
All the cables and power supplies.
1 IBM SCSI raid/shelf

I don't believe I got the L2 controller. If anyone has a source, please pass
along the info. It seems to be not strictly necessary but would be nice.

A shout out to Eric who had to give up the stuff due to a move.

It filled up my buddy's Eurovan, and makes an impressive pile of gear in the
basement :-) Like you, no rack, though.

I haven't yet fired any of it up, since we're in the middle of house/garage

If any one has parts/pieces they need, let me know. Seems like other than
the G-brick, a guy could build two systems from all this gear.

I also still have my 16 way Origin 2000 that needs a new home. Located in
Minneapolis. We have a dock :-)
