Finds today...

Well, I did save a few things here... and one thing that I've never
actually heard mentioned here!

Went to the local puniversity's surplus sale -- open from 1130 hrs until
1300 hrs... :-/ and I got:

Older Wyse terminal w/keyboard. (I just wanted the keyboard for my NIB
terminal - but they told me I had to take the whole thing... ;-) $5.00

I also got an HP 64000. I worked on these a little bit in college, and that
was the main reason for getting this one - nostalgia. Dunno much about it
(I didn't work on them that much) but it's heavy, big, and has the built-in
EPROM burner & eraser. (The biggest thing it says it burns is a 2716...) It
has a 300W power supply, built-in monitor & that's about it for now. Looks
in decent shape, but dunno if it runs. $5.00

Also, some good news, & some bad news:

I picked up a rackmount Interdata system, with at least 1 (maybe 2) 9 track
tape drive(s), a *big* rackmount HP hard drive (unknown size) and dunno
much else. The good news? It's not in the skip. The bad news? I bought the
machine for work as we need another rack for our business, so the interdata
stuff is to be pulled out and "disposed of." Now, don't fret too much, as
if there's anything I do want, I'll keep and take home. Everything else
(which will be most of it) the list has first dibs on, and I can store it
for at least a month in the basement if necessary. If no-one claims it by a
few months from now, then "the bad thing" might happen, as I really can't
keep it forever. :-( What I don't keep can be had solely for cost of
shipping, but some stuff might get quite heavy, so be warned. $10.00

Anywho, I'll have a more complete inventory Monday for y'all.

See ya,

Recycling is good, right???  Ok, so I'll recycle an old .sig.

disarmament should *not* be your first career choice.
