Hi all,

I's thinking its about time I stopped lugging so much kit from house to
house, so looking at ditching the following over the weekend, unless
there's any takers. Aware its all ancient, but just in case its of use t

Computer One (c1996):
Pentium I - 150MHz (overclocked to 166MHz, I think)
10 Mb Network card (PCNet chipset)
Maxtor 90432D3 - 4GB HDD
3.5" floppy drive
S3 Trio64 Video card
Canopus Pure3D card (PCI, Voodoo I based, NTSC TV Out, a whopping 6MB of
RAM, still have pass-thru cable from 2D card)
Pro Audio Spectrum 16 ISA soundcard
AT Keyboard
Mini Tower AT Case
Notes: Doesn't boot currently - could be a bios battery issue, as it did
work 8 months ago.

Computer Two (c2000):
Pentium II - 400MHz
Mainboard: Asus P2B
384MB RAM ( 3x 128MB DIMMs)
Quantum Fireball 3.2GB
Quantum Fireball 20GB
No Sound Card
No Video Card
Case: Promedia Midi Tower (3 5.25" bays, 3 3.5" bays)

Computer Three (c2004? - got cheap as surplus from somewhere, to use as a
Celeron (450Mhz, from memory, on a slotket)
Mainboard is a Promedia C8648X-BX (I think I've only ever been able to
manual in Korean online, looks to be Intel BX Chipset)
No Hard drives in case
Video Card: SIS 6326 Based, AGP
Generic NEC CD-ROM drive.
Case: AOpen Midi Tower, 3 5.25" bays, 3.5" bays missing.(case looks like it
was swapped with the P2 at some point)
Notes: Doesn't boot currently - again, could be a bios battery issue. Or
just stuffed.

Other stuff:
Billion BIPAC-7500G ADSL VPN Firewall Router with 3DES Accelerator (does
802.11g wireless, 4x10/100Mb ethernet, ADSL1. I think there's a firmware to
bring it to ADSL2, but not ADSL2+. Boxed, but may not have the line filter
Netgear WG602 802.11b Wireless Access Point (only does WEP, I think. Have
looked to see if it can be repurposed with alternate firmware, but haven't
found anything)

Looking to dump stuff on Sunday. If you want any of it, you'd have to be
able to come and collect it from Bruce. Message me off list if you're
interested in any of this.
