A mere 579 miles from Kamloops. Unfortunately have to talk to my
wife who thinks I have too many computers even though I've given away
bulk of my DEC stuff. Never got a chance to play around on Alpha as
it came out during my Mac days.
>I have access to 3 ES45s, a DS15, and an RA8000 in a tall blue
>Compaq rack in Athabasca, Alberta. All the in-service disks were
>removed but all the spares are available. The box also has the
>fibre switches used the connect the RA8000 to the servers and the
>cables, much of the paper documentation, and assorted doodads. It
>would probably work if plugged in but it has been a year since it
>was turned off.
>Athabasca, Alberta is about 1.000km North of the US Montana border
>and 10,000km from nowhere but it is summer and the weather is nice
>so we might be able to load this great heavy beast on a trailer and
>haul it up to a day's drive away if anybody want this stuff. This
>is rural Alberta so
>a day's drive is a l-o-n-g way (like 1,000km?).
>I tried to give this away in early 2019 but the deal fell through. If
>I don't get a place to send it then I will keep the DS15 and convert the
>rest of it into scrap metal.
