      We'll shoot for it all now, and ask questions later.   :)
      Seriously, this sounds like excellent stuff.  The easels (is that spelled right?) will be very helpful for events that we host.  Thank you for offering them.
      Our computer collection is wide and varied, and constantly growing, so early laptops and OS/2 stuff fit in.

      No not a computer, but someone from IBM who was cleaning out a bunch of OS/2
      related stuff to send me, sent me a box of 8 metal folding display easels.
      These are really nice, if there is a use for them.  Is there any need for these
      for signage or maybe for information displays?

      Also as I have said in the past I amm working on creating a vintage OS/2 museum
      for the Warpstock OS/2 user conference this October in Hershey.  Once the event
      is done I will need to find a home for most of this stuff.  I have some
      interesting things which may or may not be of interest for the InfoAge site.  A
      couple of early PS/2 laptops with OS/2 1.3 and 2.0 installed and a Power Series
      PC model 803 which hopefully will have OS/2 PowerPC installed if I can figure
      out why the 4X CDROM drive won't read the CD-Rs I have burned.  I also have
      banners and a table cloth from IBM.

      Will there be a library area at the museum?  I have old issues of OS/2 magazines
      and some books as well.
