Wanted: Unwanted O2?

Unread postby JacquesT » Tue Jul 14, 2009 2:00 pm

Hi all,

If anybody in the UK has an O2 they don't want or thinking of dumping please let me know. Any spec will do, I'd like an small footprint IRIX system to work with. Speed is not an issue.

Would pay postage.

Cheers!

Jacques.

Any idea what spec and what it would cost to chuck in the post? You could take the HD out if it helps??

Too bad, I used to have a bunch of these I couldn't give away. Don't know what shipping to the UK would be, but O2s aren't that heavy...

What does Boeing do down there? Up here things started drying up after the Indigo2 era (some Octanes, a few O2s, and some cube-logo O2ks and Onyx2s, but little else).

We lost the surplus store, too. I wonder where Boeing is sending their neat stuff (the surplus website seems to list the occasional generic PC type thing and a few times I've seen Blade-150 era Suns).

They're probably doing the same thing they're doing in Huntsville - selling directly to a recycling center.

Lack of public sales at the surplus store not withstanding, there certainly hasn't been any shortage of Origin 300s on eBay with a PNW location and the same specs at those from Huntsville. You might do some research on who in the are does technology recycling. Maybe you can find a pallet or two of O2s yourself.

I just wish there was a bunch of O2's to be collected here in the UK! :roll:

I've had some very kind offers from a few folks in the States and Europe, just weighing up shipping costs.

Thanks much for the responses!

Still looking. Shipping from the States is a killer at about $125, without import taxes.

So I could throw a few pounds or euros in for an O2 (R5k, need two drive bays) as I have a bit of cash. But since i'm not after high spec CPU it probably not gonna be a lot of cash.
