Yes, my office no. is 0141 551 6239. The system can be inspected during=20
office hours, we have the paperwork for the HPUX software licence=20
transfer (although this box WILL run Linux :) ). Subject to confirmation=20
with the administrators, the system itself will be available on next=20
Friday (2nd).

Payment can be made by business cheque, personal cheque (with guarantee=20
card) or cash.

There is already one offer in for the HP box and the bidder is pushing=20
for confirmation so it'd be advisable to get things moving quickly with=20
the liquidators.

I've appended the exact spec.
