[rescue] Wanted: AG10E

 Does anyone around happen to have a Fujitsu AG10E they are tired of or know
of someone that might have one?
Also any relevant period specific software could be of interest. I have a
couple common demo disks and the drivers for the ZX card (Both sun and 3rd
party ) and stuff that comes with that but that's about it. Sadly I missed
buying an AG10E when they were on ebay years back.
I've been contemplating moving my home web hosting to something faster also,
as my Ultra 45 which is roughly P4 era in performance... so doesn't run the
cloud services I want to host for my personal use very well Sadly wishing for
Oracle to stop sucking is not going anywhere so I guess AMD it is. A Sun
processor designed similarly to AMD's EPYC would be amazing... and potentially
cost effective.

Peter, I think (!) I have an SS20 - that hasn't been used for quite a
while. The chassis is the old Aurora-1 chassis with slimline CDROM drive
bay and floppy-drive bay underneath (the Aurora-2 chassis used a
full-height CDROM bay and no floppy-drive bay). As I am in the Isle of Man,
I can get it to the UK quite easily.

Unfortunately, it is at my exes, so will take a week or so for me to
retrieve it, if it is still there (it was well hidden under a wall-fixed
corner-unit desk, but over the last 9 years might just have been removed -
we'll see).

Is equipped with some RAM, a CG6 (LEGO) SBus graphics card, 4x Sun CDROM
drive, a 2Gb SCA disk with aurora bracket, and (after all this time) a dead
NVRAM battery. Can't remember what CPUs it had, probably one or two SM61.

As I have not used it for at least 9 years, and and fully occupied with a
pair of SS10s instead, you should probably have it - better it serves a
useful purpose rather than just rotting away.

Let me know off-list if you might be interested, then I can retrieve it and
check out *exactly* what's in the box and how well it all works.
