Where?

PS: If anyone's in the area, I will officially express interest in that O2 R5200. Whoever picks it up, I'll pay shipping + a little extra to make it worth your while.

PPS: O2 R8k? You mean R7k?

Would love to add the Onyx2 to the collection but cannot justify a trip to Mass just for that. Pitty to see it end up in a dumpster :(

If anyone in the MA area would care to pick up that dual Octane, PM me. I'd be interested in paying shipping + something for your time and assistance.

I am hacking a bit Firefox 3, following up on the generous porting work already done by others. It takes 11 hours to do a clean build on my "daily-use" 300Mhz O2 though...

Hamei if you can't handle a simple cell phone purchase maybe you should rethink your prerogatives.

Wouldn't the inverse of that be true as well ?

if Apple can't handle a simple cell phone sale, should they not rethink their operation ?

Hi Skywriter.

When are you going to pitch the stuff into the dumpster?

I'm interested in the Onyx2 system but I have to see if I can interest my Dad in coming along for a 1,185 km car ride from Halifax, NS, Canada to Mendon, MA.

Is it an Onyx2 deskside system?

Regards,
Andrew

About another week or two Andrew. The onyx2 is desk side, im sorry to say the plastics are in bad condition and the top metal is a bit bent. Personally, I wouldn't spend a lot of time thinking about this one.
