I received several requests for these machines. I talked to our data
center manager and right now there seem to be a couple of machines
available pretty much right away and some more in the future. If you
are *SERIOUSLY* interested (preferrably to port some *BSD), here are
things to consider:
- you must be a non-profit/educational organization so that we can
donate the machines
- the systems are about seven feet tall, very heavy, and need special
power (110/20A, I think), air conditioning is probably necessary
- they are located in San Jose, CA and you must be able to pick them
- judging from how often the Grumman guy needs to replace stuff, the
hardware seems to get close to th end of its useful life
If you still can use a machine, drop me a line and I'll forward it.
