Weird topic for a LUG mailing list, huh?
Here's the deal - we're cleaning out the labs of the Simi Nortel office
as part of them shutting down the product line that formerly was
developed there. The labs are mostly empty now. But we don't have the
time or incentive to pull all the network cables out from under the
floors of the labs.
If there's someone out there representing an educational organization or
501C3 (non-profit) that wants to take the time and effort to do it,
you're welcome to the cables. We'd like to get the tax donation, but
it's not absolutely imperative.
I estimate there's 1-2 miles of network cables under the flooring. Most
of it is Cat 5 and Cat 5e cabling (but a lot of it is Cat 3 telco, too,
with a scattering of T1 and V.35.). All of it is less than 3 years old.
Drop me a line if you're interested.
