Two of the three powered hard-drive towers have found homes, already.
There's one left.
On further examination: These things sit a bit _shorter_ than a typical
minitower PC case, and are designed to hold _four_ (not six/seven, as
I'd originally estimated) half-height (i.e., typical sized) hard drives.
There are sliderails and other mounting hardware. The data connector in
the back is old-style SCSI, the one that looked like a Centronics
parallel connector only longer. There are two connectors, so in theory
you could pass through. (Again, it wouldn't be hard to use non-SCSI
drives in these boxes, instead.)
A few things I forgot to mention, last time:
o an electric-driven lemonade-maker (or orange-juicer, etc.). In other
words, you halve the fruit and then press it down on the motor-driven
o two PC-case stands. These are side/bottom brackets that you
wingnut-tighten onto any large PC case to let it sit vertically and
yet not be in any danger of falling over.
They're a lot like these (top-left item):
o Lots and lots of different type of SCSI cables (external and
internal). We have way more than we could ever use.
