I just got a storage space which is right downtown. I would be interested in 6 of these. I work in hillsboro and will be at the meeting wednesday if my g/f doesnt succeed in killing me.

They probably take up about a cubic foot of space give or take. They're
the kind of thing you would see at a restaurant (since that's where they
came from ;)) Maybe a foot wide/deep and 8 inches tall?
On one that I took apart I think I counted 6 Z80s. If I'm remembering
correctly, they're PLCC packages. There are also some small boards
with DIP legs (stamp-style) that provide various plugin (in the literal
sense!) functionality... one of the ones I took apart had an AVR on it.
I do have all the cables, which includes power and an RJ-45 terminated
data cable. Dunno if it's ethernet or not; I suspect it isn't.
I'll bring one on Wednesday for people to look at if nobody wants to
commit to taking one :)
