Hokey smokes you're not kidding. Got some oldies laying around, so for giggles looked up random prices on ye olde 80287 math co-processors... yikes. Other classics were just as bad. As much dinosaur era crap I have in storage I could probably retire if it all sold.
edit: just checked, and people are now asking outrageous prices for those old CPUs!!! nevermind that suggestion

The stupidity of beaurocracy always wins out over logic. Why didn't someone offer them $1 (or whatever) for the lot of them, since it was supposed to be an auction? Then that person could have gave them away as they saw fit.
Me and a few other students asked them if we could take them but they said no, they couldn't give them away. So there they were, all those IBM PS/1 and PS/2 systems just sitting there in the pouring rain. As a final insult they had us help load them into the garbage bins after they were destroyed.
