If you think there will be interest I'll bring them instead of scrapping them.
I assume the consignment table is open to all, no pre-registration required,

I just would hate to haul them to VCF and find out they are too non-vintage to
interest anyone there...

I should have a dual proc U60 or 2 available - at a minimum I have a couple
dozen 300 MHz CPUs, pretty sure the U60s have better CPUs installed already.
