I've loaned out bits of my PDP-8A via a friend to an organization that
still uses them to drive some machinery (I've never asked, and no one has
ever offered to tell me what they're used for - I just know that it's
something in a government department. Perhaps it's being used for code
breaking :-)

I've never asked for money, but surprisingly, the bits always return in a
box with a nice bottle (port or whisky). I feel happy to have helped and
it's just a nice gesture to attach something on it's return.
