      Well, exchanging lists of WTB/FS now would help a great deal. Now that I have my BA11, I've probably blown my budget for at least a couple months (and it's during a busy season for my wife), but if there's something sufficiently tempting, I might be able to make it in.

      For me, my WTB list is pretty sparse at this point, since I'm going to be spending the next few months on some quality time with RSX-11M. :-) I'm always on the lookout for SCSI drives for old Macs, etc, but their limited lifespan and relative rarity tend to conspire to make them worth more than I want to spend.
