and I'm on the lookout for the following:
CBM 4032, Sun 3/60, Sun 4/110, Sparc IPC, HP9000/725, RS/6000,
Apollo DN300. I know where I can get an IPC and the HP, but the
other Suns, the IBM and the Commodore so far remain elusive.
I have a pile of sun4c stuff if you are looking for things like
double-wide CG6 cards and floppy drives (with sleds for pizza
box enclosures). I sold my last IPC in 2000 - it's humming along
as a backup DNS server on my former employer's network. Fortunately
I got the check before I got laid-off.
Mostly now, I have sun4m stuff - SPARCclassics, one or two dead SPARC-LXs
(only stuff I've had *die* on me while I was using it - two motherboard
failures in two years!) and my current SPARCstation5-110. The SS5 is my
household UNIX server - 20Gb of disk, etc., soon to go to 40Gb when I
other to reboot it (been up for months). I think the only sun4c CPUs I
have left are my original, original SPARC1 - $800 in 1993 (to which I
added about $2000 in RAM and hard disk) and its replacement, a SPARC1+
I know what you mean about a PET 4032 being elusive. It's one model I
haven't run across yet. I do have a 4016 I need to repair - someone on
this list used to use it when it was at UC Santa Barara, IIRC - it has a
laboratory I/O package - BNCs and banana jacks in a metal box off to the
right side, and a small card cage inside that sits on the two 40-pin
expansion connectors. It's one of the ones that Commodore prevented from
being upgraded by perforating the motherboard at the upper 16K positions.
It can be restored, but there are several 3/8" holes and missing pads
and traces to work around.

Great stuff seeking new owners in Yahoo! Auctions!
