An expanded Mac display would be another good attraction someday.

Thanks. Remember, it only applies to newer systems, not the toaster Macs.

True, and we * gradually * account for that. For example we allowed an SGI exhibit at VCF East this year. But the eMac launched in 2002. Maybe someday the whole iMac transition will be considered historic (which is why we have one in the museum collection -- we'd like to have a museum exhibit one day of "modern history") but for now it's just a used computer.
I'm sure there are many forums where good help is available for modern Macs.
But as I said, it's not totally banned here (at least once we get to know the poster, as we have with you.)
It would be different if someone posted about a modern computer with their very first post, or all the time -- then we'd probably restrict their membership.
