Hardware Rescues

One of the sales reps for a company that we deal with at work gave me a bunch of systems today – a pair of Sun Ultra 10s, a pair of Ultra 2s, and an Ultra 5. I’m trying to get enough RAM to bring the U10s up to 1G each. I’m going to give the U5 away to anybody that wants it (its a 270Mhz model with a 4G HD and 128M RAM), and the U2s, well, who knows.

  1. In case you didn’t read my plea for help in the other other place, I’m in dire need of a working U2 because right now my colo box is an U1-140, and that one’s missing just that little bit of CPU-grunt. Most of the story’s in my journal, http://rbarclay.livejournal.com/2006/04/27/, http://rbarclay.livejournal.com/2006/02/18/, http://rbarclay.livejournal.com/2005/12/02/ (and other posts).
    I have 3 U2 carcasses but only one working mainboard between them, and even with that it hangs hard after a couple hours of heavy load.

    I can’t blow all that much money on a new box, but maybe we could work something out?
