Interesting Washington State Surplus Doo-Dads

Unread postby pierocks » Tue Jul 25, 2017 9:32 am

I was browsing through the eBay store of the Washington State Surplus people down in Pasco, WA. I'm maybe headed south to watch the eclipse, and when I told the wife that "Pasco is on the way, they might have some interesting gear", she didn't immediately divorce/murder me. Anyway, I saw a couple of things that might interest you weirdos^w fine people.

HP J9171A, 486 Network Advisor
I don't know anything about this beast. Zero. But it looked like it could be the basis for a fun project for somebody on here. I know there is a contingent of 486 fans around these parts. Maybe you could have yourself a luggable for playing Kings Quest or something.

A SiCortex!
Again, I have zero knowledge of this thing, other than that it would bring the owner enormous nerd cred. If I had to guess, it seems like it's missing some important bits, but who is to say. Maybe those gaping holes in the blade chassis are for air flow? :lol:

They are multiplying. If you can read this, send help.

Yeah. The SiCortex is missing a bunch of stuff. This is just the fabric router, and even that is missing parts. There should also be another rack that actually has the CPU blades. Pretty much useless. Good luck finding the stuff to actually make a SiCortex cluster.
