My old lemonpad Terra (the one that can't speak floppies but is
otherwise a sturdy old beast) isn't seeing much use these days; if you
want it as a temp-caddy for your HD whenever yet another beast dies
you're welcome to it. Thinkpad 560, screen and keyboard both in
unabused condition, maybe minor scratches from being disassembled enough
times for HD swaps.
I was going to give it away to a friend as a low end laptop but she's
decided (I think reasonably) that when she's free enough from baby cares
to enjoy playing with a computer, we can swing down to Action and pick
up a nice little last-year's model.

You're welcome to call me here at the house, (408 374 7623) and/or ssh
into gemini to get some work done.
