Re: Free SPARC hardware

Just an update, I have enough interest in this hardware that I should
ask that everyone hold off on any more inquiries.

I'm going to give the NetBSD folks first shot at some of this stuff,
then I'll release a full inventory of what I have available.

I'm also booting everything up, and wiping SCSI drives and verifying
the systems are in good working order (aside from dead NVRAM).

I'll make another post with the inventory once that is complete.  I
have already started working on the hardware this evening, and hope to
have it online by Monday.
