Aarrrrrgh! Any chance you'd be willing to pull the memory? What size disks
does it have? I think most of that stuff would work in my Sun Fire servers.

Things are so cheap in America that most people have more than enough gear
by now. Those of us living in far flung places have neither the room nor the
cash to ship stuff from there, nor nearly enough gear.

Just so you don't think "too old or common" is the reason except locally,
where that probably *is* the reason.
