Hello fellow SPARC people.

Please find attached offer from Ryerson University (see below). Please 
note the short time line.

Some additional infomation from Roger Ehrlich to be observed:
"Sorry for the short time lines, but we need to remove these servers very 
soon. The management requires the space. These servers still have good 
production life in them, so it would be a shame to dispose of them. We 
have an e-waste recyclers coming initially Oct 17, so we want to know if 
there is commitment to taking some servers before then. We'd need the 
requested servers to be removed no later than Oct 24. The sooner these 
servers are taken the better."

Most servers come with 2 disks. We'll attempt to populate the drive bays with at least 2 disks and sleds.  Pair of Rack mount rails

No tax receipts for donations required.

Unfortunately we cannot ship these items (no packing material, time and cost is too high) If interested please contact us to pick up
the servers by October 24. Otherwise these will be recycled.
