Hallo, I'm clearing out some duplicates and mismatched material from the JHU ACM's collection of old stuff that I try to call a "museum". All of this is, at the moment, located in Baltimore, MD; local pickup can be easily arranged. Bringing things to Pittsburgh is also an option, though you’ll have to tolerate some latency (I’m infrequently at CMU, so…). The current list of materials is available at https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/ccc?key=0AqVSp8UyoZ_bdDFGXy1JTWlfZ2FLMXYtdkZhUi1GdHc I’ve tried to be reasonable about initial asking prices, mostly going by what’s up on eBay right now. If I’ve wildly missed the mark, please let me know. Speaking of eBay, these are going up there eventually, but I thought I’d offer the mailing list first. Dead Trees and Media: Most of the dead-tree part is comparatively un-interesting or common, and so I would be happy to part with it for the cost of shipping and an entirely optional donation (can you spare $1?) towards the museum's efforts. Some appear not to be in any of the archives I know of; I'll cover shipping them to you for a promise that they end up there, if that's the case. :) Actual "Classic" Computers: Sun Enterprise E450, 3x Sun Ultra 5, Sun SparcStation 5, Sun SparcStation 4, HP 712/60 Other Bits of Technology: Sun UltraSCSI external enclosure for half-height disk drive (sparcstation decor) Sun SCSI external enclosure for full-height disk drive (IPC/IPX decor) Two reels tape, presumed identical; one labeled “AMPEX 874 CATT 1600 CPI - 3200 FCI” Myricom Myrinet Fiber Switch (M3-CLOS-ENCL) w/ cards. Numerous MyriNET PCI-X Fiber cards. There's sure to be more stuff over the coming year, too, as just how much space the department takes away from us in our upcoming move becomes clearer. :'( Thanks! --nwf;
