Ok, this is EXACTLY the type of response I didn't want to see. This is
pure speculation and is simply not the case and I regret your insinuation.
I have no reason to believe Mike is being misleading or dishonest with me.
He was basically doing us a favor, and I doubt he is foolish enough to
think he can get $50 for one of these units on the open market.

Mike is an Engineer. He owns a company that designs custom hardware for
other companies. He knows what current market value is on older computer
hardware. He understands the cycles. He was amazed anyone was interested
in these units to begin with, and is somewhat fascinated with the premise of
this discussion group.

If anyone else has any concerns about what happened with this deal, I
would appreciate your e-mailing me directly instead of filling the
discussion group with noise.
