  Gene, there are a couple of AS/400 in the warehouse where I work.
They are the older beige deskside boxes, they look intact, and I can get
you the model #s next week. My boss there is a little weird about
pricing, so they may run from $.12 to $.50 per pound, depending on his
mood. I'm guessing that would top out at a possible $80 or so, plus
shipping. There's a box of documentation there that he'll probably
throw in.
  I know nothing at all about AS/400 and don't want to learn, so it's a
grab bag from your end. I can and will see if they'll boot to a console
if you can provide startup (and shutdown) instructions. I'll run
whatever diags are accessible.
  If you're interested, I'd need you to arrange shipping _before_ I pick
it/them up from the shop. I don't mind dealing with it, but I'm totally
out of room to store it.

  Drag that you have to buy equipment and learn an OS just to call your
"colleagues" on their crap.
