There is a place I work at called Allgen Computers over on Hamilton Wolfe and Babcock. They have tons of older PC parts there and I know the boss wants to get rid of at least half of them. Go check there

Borries,

Actually, I am playing with a ksh shell. The ksh shell has it built in
also, but as soon as I customize the .profile I loose that functionality
(sadness). I remember many years ago Tweeks giving a presentation on
commands to do what I am looking for. They improved on the ones in the bash
shell.

Maybe I will just have to give up on the ksh shell.

Actually, that functionality is from the readline library.  It is used by bash 
and several other programs.

$ ldd /bin/bash|grep readline
         libreadline.so.6 => /lib/libreadline.so.6

I am looking to get a decent server or 2 for a virtualization project at 
my house. Does anyone knew of a good place (relatively close) that 
offers older hardware at a reasonable price? The only sites are nice, 
but sometimes it is good to see what is available closer to home.

Thanks for your time.

PC Outlet on 410 near Vance Jackson had a few Dell Precision Workstations
last time I was there 2 weeks ago.

For actual server hardware I do not know of any; however you can 
probably go to some place like good will that will have plenty of old 
desktop parts. I have a 4core phenom ii  that is running VMware ESXi, 
and works great for what it runs (only 5 machines Linux and Windows 
Servers). Otherwise if you are talking about some real server hardware I 
would try looking to see if there are any company auctions, sometimes 
school districts will have auctions of old hardware that they are 
retiring, you can usually get a good deal.

I've had good results from Izzy at http://www.210geeks.com. It's mostly
Dell, but that's most of the refurbished market anyway.

He's at 11503 Jones Maltsberger Rd, just north of the San Antonio
Airport. Tell him you're from SATLUG and ask about systems without an OS
to avoid the Microsoft tax.  --Don

I have seen things you people wouldn't believe. Tourist tongues on 
fire over tacos at Mi Tierra. I watched HS bands glitter in the dark 
near the Hemisfair Gate. All these moments will be lost in time, 
like beer at NIOSA. Time to party.
