Unbelievable. We had a short series of comments about that auction over on
the Greenkeys list a week or so ago. One of the list members (Greenkeys)
put them up for auction. He was surprised I suppose. Needless to say, we
just shook our heads at the fact that these do turn up more often than not
and that person who bid that much has to be some sort of
newbie/clueless/whatever person who didn't wait for the next set of manuals
to turn up on that auction site. Around a tenth of that bid price and less
is in the normal price range for a set. Bid history shows even a second
$300 bid :-/

As I mentioned before, I understand the ASR-33 manual will be eventually
scanned and posted on some Greenkeyer's website. I'll try to mention it
here when it happens for those interested.

Regards, Chris
