Free! Wow, that's great!

What did they have inside computer related, anything? Last time I was
there they had an IBM System 36 and a few HP parts, some Apple // stuff
and a few Macs, and various PC's that were plain garbage by even my
standards. I've been meaning to get back down, but just haven't had the
time for a potentially wasted trip. They don't seem to know much about
computer equipment. In fact, I think they even stated that to me at one
