No. It is gone.

He tried to find someone to take it, for free, for several
months. Unfortunately he didn't have the room to store it
any longer. He didn't know about this list, but he does now,
and he's going to be joining in the next couple of days.

I don't doubt he couldn't find anyone. A couple of months ago
I posted about the HSCxx controllers and drives, and nobody
has wanted to go to pick them up. They'll end up getting
thrown out, too, if someone doesn't pick them up in the next
