Disposal of IT equipment - John C. Kirk

03:59 pm - Disposal of IT equipment

Previous Entry Share Next Entry

Here at work I have various IT equipment to dispose of, which is free to anyone who would like it:

* 4 CRT monitors (i.e. not thin LCD ones), 3 small and 1 large - these have all been tested, and are working.

* 7 6 old mice and 9 old keyboards - these should all work. Also, a couple of extension leads for 5-pin DIN sockets (mouse/keyboard), although they're unlikely to be of much use to anyone.

* 2 modems (Motorola 3400 28.8k/sec) - I assume that these work, but I haven't tested them.

* 2 big servers (Dell PowerEdge 5100/2) - each has 2 Pentium 166 Mhz processors and 96Mb of RAM. They're pretty clunky and old, but still functional; the memory may be worth more than the rest, if you have machines of a similar vintage!

* A cardboard box full of expansion cards (not stored in separate anti-static bags, but all functional when removed from PCs).
Network: 14 12 x PCI 10/100 Mb/sec (3C900B/3C900Combo/3C905B), 8 x ISA 10 Mb/sec (3C509B). All 3Com, with RJ45/BNC connectors.
Graphics: 3 x Rage II 2Mb (PCI).
Random 1: Half-length ISA card with 25 pin female socket, marked "HP ScanJet Scanner" - SCSI?
Random 2: Frame grabber? Leutron Vision "Picport-Color", with three connectors on back. Looks a bit like this.

You can collect from here (Acton), or I can carry small things elsewhere - buzz me if you want anything, or if you need more specific info. And if you need a 10-speed hub, I'll probably have a couple of them going spare in the New Year.

Edit: Added two extra cards/cables to the list, crossed out items that have been requested.

I could probably use a hub (although 10 speed is slow yes?)

Yeah, 10 Mb/sec is pretty slow by modern standards. On the other hand, it's still faster than most broadband connections, so if all you want to do is hook a few computers up to the internet then it would be fine.

It's nice to have my own office, but the walls are starting to close in on me with all the accumulated junk that's piled up here :) One of those servers was actually our primary domain controller until a month or so ago, and I've been collecting network cards when I've been updating PCs and noticing that they have NICs built into the mobos.

Mice

(Link)
There are:

* 2 x generic brand (model "MOSXK") - PS2, two buttons + wheel.

* 1 x Logitech cordless (buttons/wheel), and two HP infra-red receptors (PS2) which presumably work with it.

* 2 x Microsoft mouse 2.0 (two buttons, PS2)

* 2 x Microsoft Intellimouse (two buttons, wheel, PS2)

I also have a couple of extension leads for 5-pin DIN sockets (mouse/keyboard), although they're unlikely to be of much use to anyone.

I don't need/want anything right now, but I might in a fortnight's time depending on what Eemeli wants to take back with him.

Ok; I'll let other people claim anything they want in the meantime, but I'll check with you before I actually bin anything.

Leutron card

(Link)
Hi, would be nice to get Leutron card, how much for it? I live in Lithuania, so shipment should be calculated; otherwsie have forwarders for stuff from US in Bridgeview, IL. Could also buy via eBay if you prefer that way and list it.

Regards,

Danas
