(Almost vintage) DEC Alpha DS-20 gear

Gibsaw was interested in some OS discs a while back, but didn't get back to me - There have now (or will shortly) surfaced about 6 Dec Alpha DS-20 servers. These are big machines, comparable to a 4U rack mount server.

PM me if there is any interest - I would hate to think what freight would be outside of Christchurch. It was a two person lift into my boot!

Once I have fully spec'd mine there will be some spares too.

I may have to advance my solar array power plan if I am to switch one of these on in the garage without her noticing...

Ok - just got the call and there are about 5 left (excluding the one for Andy). Probably be diskless, but they take standard Ultra320 Compaq/HP 10/15K SCSI drives.

Let me know - probably need to go in the next week, otherwise to the scrapyard (Lots of heavy steel in them!).
