They don't seem to be blocking the worst offenders (cyberpromo and
friends). 3 or 4 years ago CRL was very good. They answered the
phone and messages to, and even did things for
their users. Things are not as good now.

I can be reached at as well. October will likely
be my last month with CRL. If I unsubscribe at CRL and then resubscribe
at my new ISP will I loose my "third guy on the list" status?

Classic computer stuff:

It looks like I'll be getting a DG Nova 3 soon. My first mini!
Any advice on moving a Nova other than bring some friends?
I know that it has a fixed/removable hard disk. I do not know
the model. Is there a way to lock the heads? Do they need to
be locked?

The guy I'm getting it from also is interested in selling his Apple IIe.
It has:

Waldo board (sound card) working vut one of sensors has been damaged
CP/M board with Digital Research CP/M
2 floppies,
Trinitron monitor
misc software (flight planning and project management)

The system is working. A quick look at the apple II marketplace
newsgroup showed that the parts are possibly worth $50. But then
again I saw a complete IIe system with monitor and two drives for
$15 at a thrift store recently. How much are IIe's going for
these days?
