If it has actual historical value, the Computer History Museum (Mountain
View) might be interested in it as a donation.  Be warned that the staff
there are somewhat wary of nostalgic geeks wanting to drop off their old

to drop off an old m68k-based BeBox, a different staffer almost turned
me away at the door.
