This was posted to the classiccmp list a while back, apologies for the
overlap but they're running out of time.

Regarding the thread started by Peter Wallace of Mesa Electronics the
other month - I've been by for one load, and there are still tons of DEC
and HP, and a few RS6k, workstations/servers. Including a rare DECserver
that has a TurboChannel Expansion box. Lots of HP 712 and 715
workstations, a C110, DECstations (MIPS) and VAXstations (derp).

Mesa has to vacate these offices by the end of the month. They're super
nice people, and just trying to avoid anything involving a scrapper.
Here's what was still there after I went by on May 13th.
