I'm looking for either QBUS parts, or $5 + shipping for each of the
following.. Trying to clean out my room before I have to move in a few
- SparcStation 20, 32MB ram, 1x50MHz proc, floppy, 2GB HDD.
I have 2 of these to get rid of.
- Macintosh IIfx with a pair of 16 channel A/D cards, and some sort
of interface software on the drive. It was originally a part of a
NMR system, and still has the software on it. Unfortunately, they
decided to crush the instrumentation that hooked up to the I/O cards
to do the NMR stuff. Has 8MB ram and (I think) a 120MB hdd.
- Macintosh Classic II. 80MB HDD, not sure on amount of ram.
- Macintosh Plus 1MB
- Macintosh Quadra 700, 16MB ram, 230MB HDD.
- Mac-plus style keyboards and mice (4pin RJ11 keyboard, DE9 mouse)
- PS/2 Model 70, with 6MB ram and an 80MB hard drive. I have at least two
to get rid of, but need to find where I stuffed the ram first...
- 2 Full-height 50pin centronics SCSI enclosures
- HP 9000 model 715/50, I think it has 32MB ram.
- IBM RS/6000 7011 Model 220 with 32MB ram, 400MB+ HDD, 2.88MB FDD,
Now, what I'm looking for in trade:
+ Small-ish (can be lifted by 2 people) PERTEC or SCSI 9 track tape drive,
that is manual/autoloading. I don't really want one that's slot load,
I rather be able to see it spinning (and possibly manually load it). I
use to have one, but it died, and I'd like to get a 'new' one. This
would be worth a few things from the above, and I'd probably be willing
to pay some money for it.
+ QBUS PERTEC card.
+ QBUS RAM card for a PDP-11/23, 128kW or better.
+ QBUS ethernet card that works with PDP-11 OS's.

Subject: I live in NYC and have no space for my old Mac...
My name is Stacy Yoshioka and I have a very old Mac computer, monitor and printer that I no longer have space for. I have purchased a PC laptop about a year ago and since I live in a cramped NYC apartment I cannot store it any longer and have finally transfered all of the old info to a PC disk. Anyway, it is a Performa 6360 and the printer is a Style Writer II. The entire system still works and I have the manuals and backup software. I also installed about 100 mb of extra memory when I got it. If any of your organizations could use this machine please let me know. I saved so much money to buy it when I was in college that I can't see just throwing it away. I do not have a car in the city so if any of your organizations pick them up or are easy to get to please let me know as well.

I'd like this. I've got a Dilog DQ130 Qbus card (pertec controller AFAIK)
and a Texas Instruments TM10010 Qbus RAM card
(128k x 18 bit I thnk), but I doubt it's worth shipping the RS/6000 to

I saw an interesting thing happen a couple of years ago, with *silly*
consequences for those involved.

Rather like a typical eBay auction then.

Only because (a) there's so many items on eBay, and (b) it operates in
several time zones. Imagine having to login to eBay every day at 3pm (then
adjust for timezone) just to bid on an item.

So, rather like the current format.

Bullshit. The format is identical, with a built-in "anti-snipe" measure.

Of course you do. "Normal" auctions are held on a specific day, which in
real-world terms is much the same thing as an eBay end time. Hell, you even
have "buy-it-now" (sold prior, in a normal auction format), withdrawn &

Absolute bullshit. A sealed bid auction does not allow you to bid more than
once, nor do you know if your bid has been exceeded. Nor is there any
advantage/disadvantage in bidding early or late, as no-one knows what the
bids are until the auction finishes.

I'm extremely tempted to agree with you on this (although I should point
out that I don't really give a monkeys about sniping/not sniping - all of
the auctions I've not won, I wouldn't have paid the final price even if I'd
known it in advance).
The only thing I'd say, which may or may not be seen as a disagreement, is
that we don't /know/ that the eBay fixed end-time model does - or does not
- hurt sellers. Sure, sniping ups the ante in the last few seconds much of
the time - but would it have gone higher with an extending auction? Until
(if) eBay try it, we will never know...

As part of an imposed old-hardware clear out, and the decision
on the grounds of space to stick to 5 level tape for which I
have a reader and printer, I've got a Facit 4070 paper tape
punch for sale. In working order, complete with chad box.

No, it probably won't work with a mac montior. The Mac uses a different
But, the IIgs does have composite video as well as RGB, so you can always
use the composite video in absence of the right RGB monitor.
Mac ADB keyboards and mice are fully compatible with the IIgs.
