The Pentium 4 is a very inefficient architecture and the power consumption is
horrific. I wouldn't haul it away if you paid me because it costs too much to

In the vein of fan heaters that do a bit of computation on the side, I want rid
of both a Sun Ultra 20 M2 and a 3U rackmount whitebox dual-Opteron system with
hardware RAID and hotswap SATA. Collect from south London or make it worth my
while to post them. The CPU+motherboards are worthless, but I'd like a modest
number of purple drinking vouchers for the useful bits, i.e. the enclosures,
disk controllers, and spud brackets.
