No photo- the photo is at the link I posted.

So was my college - UMCP (university of MD @ College Park) I actually had 2 IBM RTs - that had the original ROMP RISC chip, pre-POWER. They were in an instructors closet (the were old by the time even I was there) and they had the SystemV Academic Version of UNIX - not AIX. Of course they are long gone from me.. really should have kept that one.

The asset management app is really nice - Snipe-IT - https://snipeitapp.com/ and code is https://github.com/snipe/snipe-it

I looked for a long time and it's the nicest totally free, linux/php/mysql based package out there. I've used it with their vagrant install to play around with on my mac, and then just set it up on a small linux server I keep around. There are USB scanners on amazon for $20 and a set of 500 asset bar-code tags for like $10 I think. It works very nicely.
