I have been swamped, so I haven't been able to sift through as much stuff
as I wanted to, but here's a partial inventory of things I've got to shed:
Ultra 2 (at least two, specs unknown)
Ultra 30 (spec unknown)
Ultra 5 & 10s (various)
Sun SS/20 (specs unknown)
Multiple Sun unipacks (CD, HD, Empty CD-ROM)
Multiple Sun multipacks (can't remember if they are 6 or 12 bay)
Multiple Sun tape drives (8 mm & 4 mm)
Motorola Starmax Mac clone
Livingston Portmaster 2/e with 30 serial ports
Livingston Portmaster 2/e with 20 serial ports & 5 ISDN ports(?)
And, the cherry on top, an SGI P3 desktop (IIRC) with matching SGI flat
panel display - I bought this from a list member years ago (8+ years
ago, by my estimate) and I never opened the boxes!
I'll pack most of this in my car, whatever I don't get requests for on the
way down to ATL I'll have available for possible drop off on Monday on my
I've had requests for some other bits I'll me taking down with me, an
octane, two U5s (w/ keyboard & mouse), and a mess 'o Apple bits, once I
load the items that were requested into my truck, I'm going to stuff what I
think folks might want in the truck, so if something looks interesting,
drop me a note off-list - no promises, but I'll se what I can do...
