on it, being at least in the right part of the country, but it's still
an ~8hr drive for me, both ways. I wrote to the seller and asked
about the HP's future. The answer: we're just about to dump it in the
crusher, but if you want we'll list it one more time.
So they're apparently going to do this - is anyone going to bid? I'd
hate to see this glorious old brown machine go to scrap. I will
possibly bid if no one else speaks up, but it's going to take some
wrangling to find time to go get it. Oh, and they insist they can
only support pickup M-F, 9-5, so that means taking a day off, too, for
us working normal hours.
Oh, and greetings from the Midwest and Chicago Classic Computing, your
hosts for VCF-MW!
