Too true. I acquired some by putting out ads where I worked at a large
hospital. People do throw them out, but that works to your advantage as
long as they know you're a collector. The trick is getting the word out
to a large enough group. I've had to throw out a few myself, because I
couldn't find anyone to give them to either.

Would it be a useful machine to you if you could get a larger disk and
more RAM? I gave away a couple Quadras (to a fellow LUGer - hooray,
someone rescued an old Mac!) recently with compatible RAM. If the guy's
not actively using them, I could ask if I could pull 16MB for you. It
would still have 16MB, and he'd probably be happy with that.
