Psst – hey buddy – wanna buy a 286? That’s right, those 4 hunks’o’junk I just purchased turn out to be IBM PS/2 30’s. They also came without power cords, and I haven’t been motivated enought to shut-down my Mac (to steal it’s cord), so I don’t know if any of them work yet. At the very least, I figure I got some spare SIMMS and hard drives, for when I do get a Wintel box. Oh well, there’s always next month’s surplus auction…

If I could just find a cheap SCSI external, I’d just buy this book, and get it over with…8^D
