Computer clearout part 3

It's time to get rid of some neat stuff (mainly vintage Unix workstation hardware) that I'm never realistically going to have time to use. Leave me a comment if any of it is any use to you!

  • SGI Indy with 17" monitor. Needs a standard PS/2 keyboard and mouse, which I can probably supply if necessary. Currently running some old version of Debian Linux, I think.

  • Two DEC 3000 workstations. Half a gig of RAM each (which was seriously impressive for 1993). No monitor, but will work fine with a serial console. Will run NetBSD fine, but Linux hadn't been ported to these things last time I checked. One has some old tape drive, the other has a caddy-style CD-ROM drive. I can provide tray-style CD-ROM drives that should work with these. I also have a PDF manual for them somewhere.

  • AT keyboard. Chunky and robust enough to be worth getting an adaptor to use it on a modern PC - half the casing is solid steel!

  • VT420 terminal. White phosphor. Could be a nice retro interface for one of the above DEC workstations! Has a cable to connect it to a standard 9-pin serial port.

  • External 5.25" floppy drive with SCSI connector.

  • External SCSI CD-ROM drive (untested).

All of them worked when last powered up, unless otherwise stated. Please offer them a home!
