Ah, doorstop? Paper weight? Seriously, though, what sort of RAM is it?
SIMMs? people always have a demand for memory. What sort of
hard-drive? If it's SCSI I'd be interested :)

Alternatively, If you wanted to keep it, and had LOTS more money, you
could set up a BBS. Admittedly, this would require a modem, a phone
line, and probably more disk space, but hey, you asked!
