NOS Bare Boards: What to do?

Afer looking at a number of responses, Uncle Roger's position
seems the most logical to me (besides, one other person suggested
this also). I think I'll buy that parts to build this, and just keep
it until needed.

Building it won't be a priority, though. The MP-A wasn't exactly the
best SS-50 CPU available. I have a NOS Thomas Instruments Super CPU,
that I've wanted to build for years. Compared with other S-50 boards
of that era, it had alot of cool features. I am working on getting a
couple of scarce parts for its companion video board.
