As my business is reselling old computers, I stumble over these old
SPARCs myself, here on the East Coast. If for some odd reason, some
TASS member wants some of this hardware I too can probably ship them
some at "firesale" prices. As Chris is on the West Coast my offer compliments
his, shipping is the majority cost for these systems. But I will leave
support to him, I'm not familiar with these systems.
