That's great. It sounds like you're starting to become a computer
collector after all. Nostalgia marks the first stage.

I'm sure any number of people on this list would be willing to help you
out, as long as you're willing to live with a slim margin.

What do you say? Reform your ways. Let the bounty flow. Make money some
other way and spread the word that computer collectors are a bunch of
hot-headed penny-pinching geeks who you found impossible to make a buck

I'll even offer to take one of those obscure iComs from you as a
good-faith gesture :-)
