Like I said....I'd heard of it...didn't realize that only 40 some were
actually ever built. I *WILL* be grabbing that for certain! =-)

It sounds like I can grab

3 - PDP-8/i
1 - PDP-11/34A
1 - Linc or Linc-8 (wasn't clear which)

I'll be grabbing it but I don't want to act TOO excited about it to the
guy I'm getting it from. He offered it all to me for free. I think I'll
take him a bottle of champagne to share with his wife or something. =-)

PS: Notice I haven't WHERE I'm getting the stuff from. I'll just keep
THAT little secret until they're safely in my basement. ;-D
