I dunno - I kind of like looking at pictures/descriptions of interesting
items, and folks posting Ebay URL's often (maybe even usually) do a
decent job of finding the "interesting" stuff.

Of course, I also realize that there's no local shortage of interesting
computer hardware free for the hauling, and am damn unlikely to bid
on anything :-).

I didn't think computer-collecting was such a competitive hobby, but some
others evidently feel differently. I see way too many late 60's/
70's minis and micros going through the scrap metal recyclers to think
that there's any shortage of historical stuff to keep me busy.
