Just be careful on Colfax Ave from about Quebec Street to downtown, was a rough area
when I was there in 76 and 82, and is said to be even worse. It's a main drag so keep
one eye open to deals and the other to problems.

Since the AF base closed down a lot of surplus is gone but there is enough corporate
business out there dumping machines to find plenty.

If I'm not mistaken the AF (or DOD) accounting and pay center is still there ans
regularly cycles out mainframes, minis and servers at auction, so there should be a
good source.
