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.
