    I found these on the sidewalk down the street

    today,and the sign said "free,working".

    most are complete with floppy,cdrom,mobo,vid card,ram,psu,etc,etc,

    I will tear into them later,

    looks like more folding boxes on the way!

    Alltogether Old computers are fun to mess around with, especially trying to remember certain things in Windows 3.11

    I'm getting ready to surplus a bunch of computers. I have no idea what the University does with them. I hope the ones Dan found are decent for Folding, the two old computers I have at the house take way too long per work unit to justify their electricity usage. It appears that those pictured are Pentium and Pentium II comps, so they may end up back on the sidewalk.
