I originally posted about this back in May, had a few nibbles, but no
one followed through to pick it up, so here it goes again...
Free AlphaServer 1200 available for pick-up in San Francisco.
Multiprocessor EV56 + MCPCIA system w/ 1G of memory, a built-in
StorageWorks-compatible disk shelf, and plenty of disks installed.
One processor board is currently installed, and I have a second one
ready to go in (the other original processor board let out its magic
smoke a couple of years ago -- that board is also included).
As an added bonus, you get whatever PCI / EISA cards are currently
installed in it. There is also an ECU disk in the floppy drive.
This machine is heavy, so I will not ship it, and I will not deliver
it. I *WILL* need help getting it out of my attic (it took 2 people
to get it up there, and will certainly take 2 to get it down). For
whoever picks it up, I will provide liquid refreshment (beer,
preferably :-) as well as sandwiches from Yellow Submarine or
burritos from L'Avenida Taqueria after the beast has been relocated
to your car / truck / van / whatever.
TIME IS LIMITED! I bought a new house, and I have other uses for the
space that this machine would otherwise occupy. That means -- either
someone picks it up, or I have the movers take it to a raw materials
The drop-dead date for this machine being out of my attic is NOVEMBER
