Upcoming Sale

Picked up an NCR PC-8 (I think the number is correct) with monitor and
docs for $20. I probably could have gotten it for free if I had waited
a week, but then again, the whole thing probably would be spread all
over the sale area and stuff could well have gotten lost! Also picked
up a couple years (not complete) worth of Soft Sector Magazine from
about 1984 to 1987.

While I was there, I saw a Kaypro II, Commodore 128, a Spectragraphics
CAD setup with several workstations, and about 40 or 50 PCs and PS/2
computers. These will be up for sale next weekend, July 12th, at the
Santa Barbara Amateur Radio Club Bazaar. Prices are usually excellent
and get better (free) the longer they are there. The sale will run from
9AM to noon. The usual mode is prices start at excellent at 9AM, half
that at 10AM, and free after about 11AM or 11:30AM. After that, the
dumpster gets filled up with whatever remains. I don't know if I have
room to pick up much else out there although I will pick up the Kaypro
and Commodore 128 if they are going for free. Hate to see the
Spectragraphics stuff dumped, but I just don't have the room for it.
Shipping is probably out of the question since I would expect that to
run a minimum of $100 (at least several hundred pounds.) As usual, I
will pick up any docs that remain although I don't know if there are any
with the system.
