    I found two old Mac Classics in a box earlier this week when gutting the server room. I've piled them with the other 20 that are currently hidden under the main hall stage :P

    Wouldn't like to be the one who takes it back - could be expensive!

    I don't know about finding things when tidying but finding random cabling is one of my hobbies here. There is such a maze of cabling around the school it will take me weeks of work to remove the useless stuff. We still have half of our old BNC infrastructure in place!!

    Sounds very much like KVM over IP. Very useful to have around...

    Found a pile of old RM Nimbus 386's from early 90's hiding at the back of a maths store room a few months back, they had gone yellow and smelled.

    Re: Odd things you've found when tidying?

    Office Tidying won't happen until the 5th week of the new term as come the last week of the holidays all the bits that are lying round the IT centre will come into my office as they cannot be left lying around, and there they shall stay for a few weeks whilst we get back to grips with Forgotten Password, new unauthorised software and other things.

    As for strange things, a dead mouse, RM Sucessmaker original disk in a posh RM folder, Satellite, reels of cable, 486DX PCs, 5 1/4" floppy disks and drive, old 3Com 10speed hubs
