I never realized I had so many of these systems!

Behind a box on some shelves I turned up FOUR more U5/10s - two 440 MHz
systems (a U5 and a U10), along with a 400 MHz U5 and a 300 MHz U10. One has a
SCSI card & drive, one has a QFE, and one has a UPA something or other
framebuffer. Half have 1 gig ram, half have 512M.

The systems are all marked as to specs & status, but they are dated 2007!

garage, I've got them warning up in the house for a few hours before I power
them up.

Do we think these will go away if I bring them to VCF? I hope to get through
my U30/U60s before VCF next weekend, if anyone attending us interested in one
of those systems. I personally can't justify packing and shipping a U30/U60,
