Re: Bill D Checking In / Looking for trades at show
- I can bring some Commodore stuff for the Swap Meet (if it is going to
occur...) it is part of a rescue [of DEC equipment!!!] from last
year. Condition unknown, but the previous owner said it all works....
Always looking for anything PDP-8......

- David,My collection is mostly micros, I don't have any PDP stuff. I am afraid that if I got into that world I would have to start moving things out of my house, like my refridgerator, beds, etc. :-)My current projects are S-100 and single board related, and some commodore B series stuff. I have pretty much covered the rest of the commodore line, I am looking to liquidate a lot of spares and parts at the show.I think you should bring the commodore items if you have the room, for the same reason that I am, to find someone who will want it rather than just junk it (which is going to have to happen eventually).Talk to you soon.bil
