name escapes me -- one of those boxes with toothed plastic wheels for
composing for offset. Didn't think anyone would be even slightly
interested in them, and since I'm moving again, and had moved them twice
already --. Actually, they aren't in the landfill, they're sitting in
the back of a '81 VW Vanagon that I had the junkyard haul away, so I
suppose if someone had a major lust for them the junkyard would probably
sell them cheap.
