RE: [midatlanticretro] free trs 80 and tandy 2000
MessageYou mean the guy on vintage-computer.com, right? That's weird. He replied enthusiastically to my email from last night, in which I just told him about our group here. But we didn't discuss the computers he's giving away.Maybe someone offered him $$.-----Original Message-----

Subject: [midatlanticretro] free trs 80 and tandy 2000
The person who promised me the free trs 80 and tandy 2000 systems has backed out, because he wants to give them to someone who lives closer to him, even after telling me I was "first in line" and I offering to meet him at a day and time of his choice - not cool. I was only 45 minutes away too and my family even closer....something else is up here so be careful as to motives, or something else is going on here.
Why would someone who held onto something for so many years and is willing to give it away be all of the sudden concerned about logistics? I could have driven over there this morning if that's what he wanted. It's his right to do what he wants, but that kind of stuff sits with me the wrong way.
If someone on this list is interested in these items, it's not too late to contact the guy - if you are more logistically appropriate.. sheesh. Or maybe there is more to this story.
I get a lot of great donations, so it's not the end of the world, but I just felt like venting. Feel better now.
