The collected works of tjf

Small pile of unixey stuff for sale (C8000, various Sun, O2, etc)


I've a few things I sadly need to part with:

- HP C8000, 1x1.1Ghz PA-8900, 2GB RAM, no disks. No foot stand.
- SunPCi IIpro (733 MHz, #375-3051) Chimera PCI PC-on-a-PCI-card
- 2x Sun Netra X1, 500Mhz
- 2x Sun Netra T1, 440Mhz
- SPARCstation 4, some RAM (CPU is onboard), no disk
- SPARCstation 5, some RAM (CPU is onboard), no disk
- SPARCstation 10, some RAM, no disk
- SPARCstation 20, no disk

Prices are: whatever you think is reasonable. If I think it's reasonable too, then it's yours.

None of the SPARCstations have processors over 75Mhz. No hypersparcs. Sorry.

I'm not describing these much because I figure this is the kind of place where you know what they are already. But if you want me to explain anything, or I've missed out some specs you care about, then just let me know and I'll elaborate.

I can photograph any of the above, if you need to see them.

I'm in England. Postage might be pricey if you're after something heavy (i.e. the C8000) and you're in another country. If you want to come and pick stuff up in person, even better!


I've an O2 which does have its hat, but is missing its front CD cover (the hinged plastic door).

It sometimes turns on when I power it up, and sometimes (mostly) doesn't. I replaced the PSU, but that didn't help. I don't have time to diagnose it, now.

So: it's yours, if you want to pay postage (or come and get it in person).

I'm in England.

Here's the C8000:

But, the footstand! The C8000 must have the footstand! ;)

Am I the only person who doesn't like the footstand? :)

Those are nicely maintained systems.

The SunPCi II pro is interesting.
Will it work in any machine with a PCI slot (support software excluded, of course), or does it have be a machine running Solaris 7,8, 9 or 10?

I don't know. I presume only drivers for Solaris exist. The drivers provide mapping for filesystem and network access through the PCI interface; without drivers, it behaves as a standalone PC, and you can use it via the external ports as per normal.

I also have a SunPC card - which is the same thing, but sbus instead of PCI. That has no external ports.

I've a TGX card spare, if you want it. I don't know if it's compatible (but maybe somebody else does?) It's yours for the price of postage, if it helps.

If it's just a different pinout though, can't you wire an adapter?
