Hi all,

we have been using two Sun 6800 (each fully equipped with 92GB of RAM
> and 24 Sparc III processors 1.2GHz) for many years.
> Now they are retired and must leave our machine room to make place
> for newer machines.
> Anybody out there willing to give them a new home? They are very good
> in transforming electric energy into heat. And by activating only some of
> the processor boards you can regulate the heat flow. Your wife will love to
> stand behind it and use it as a whole-body blow-dryer.
> Take one for free and you will get another one for no additional costs.
> While rearranging our machine room, we found lots of other stuff that must
> go away too. Here's a first list:
> - Sun E250
> - Sun A5200, A5100, D1000 (with lots of disks)
> - Sun E450
> - Sun L1000 (at least 2, another one is still in use for some months)
> - Sun 6800 (2 fully equipped and lots of spare parts)
> - Sun 880
> - Sun 480 (at least 2, with spare processor boards)
