Maybe this is blood, flowing in your veins  
So, my computer at home has been having some rather severe networking issues. These have been resolved (last time I checked, when I removed the offending networking card). Also, I haven't had a whole lot of time to participate in the update/cogitate/comment lifecycle.

Also, I've been sick like a sick, sick dog. I'm getting better, though.

Bucky and I used the phrase "test-driven development model" to describe the current state of fitting a couch in a room. I think we've both spent too much time at work. Speaking of work, we hit our apocalyptic deadline, so a windfall may be approaching from the Northeast.

I still have a bunch of crap at home, which needs a new home - most of it is old computer stuff, which may find a home either inside a new case, or into the comforting bowels of St Paul Public schools. There's only so much I can do with four ISA network cards.

I've also decided I need to get rid of the Titanium Powerbook (and accessories), and the Palm m130 (and accessories). Priced to move - comment if interested, even vaguely. I have one of the best payment plans around.

And I've been reading Buddhist scripture in the rare off-moments when I'm not out with Loungeboy. Oh yeah - Loungeboy is in town.

Well, I'll have to know more about the PowerBook, but for the moment at least, count me very very interested.

The three big questions:
(1) Networking/internet capabilities?
(2) Burner of any sort?
(3) Asking price?

1) Has built-in 56k modem and Ethernet controllers. No AirPort card.
2) CD-RW/DVD combo drive (as in, burns CD-R(W) discs, but only reads DVD's)
3) I paid $2,400 for it originally (not including the repairs), so we're looking between $1600-2100. We can talk in a less public forum about specifics regarding payment, if you're down. And you'd probably like to see it first, so we could set that up as well.

I can dig out the more "specific specs" and show it to you sometime. It would come with the other Apple stuff I've acquired for it (including Panther).

totally interested in the palm. I'll come get it and write you a check for what you think is fair if you call me.

Will do - comes with two chargers (Wall outlet and USB), Palm keyboard, and associated software. Also, doesn't have a crappy joystick. I'll call you when I get off work.

Should you two be unable to negotiate a price, this one would also be interested. :-)

Sorry - we have reached a mutually beneficial arrangement.

No worries. I'd end up using it mostly as an ebook reader anyway. :-)

My company has found similar creative uses for old hardware. For example:
