You're right, also, they can make great places to keep things... convert a
black case into a storage area for you're CDS, empty out a power supply to
make an industrial-style case. Also, what are "popular" micros; I need to
start getting collecting, but I'm not sure what to start with. By the way,
that warehouse that was full of classics... what ever happened? When I say
"popular"; I mean what are good, not something that's worth money. (No
5,000 pound Nova's, please)
