      It was all up for auction along with the Decwriter. It was pickup
      only. I put in a few bids in the interest of keeping it off the curb
      but surprisingly lost by a fair margin. I had no idea there was this
      much ~local interest in that sort of thing. :)

      The seller was "surplusvaxsales" if you want to check out the
      completed auctions.

      If anyone here won, and isn't too far away, I may be available to
      help you move the loot.

      the uVAX available to MARCH members in the coming months.
