I'd agree here with Sam. I'd be interested in a Nova (one of the
machines I have dreamt about having) or even an eclipse, but I would
have trouble paying for the transportation. If there're Novas or
Eclipses around the Bay Area, I'd want to adopt them, but Canada's a
little far away.

My wife has no problem (yet) with 'stuff' but paying to get them is
