Maybe... One of the cool components of the hobby is FINDING the bargain.
These announcements do nothing but raise the prices eventually paid for
these items. I guess that makes sense if your already sitting on a cache of
Altairs and 5100s and are happily watching prices go through the roof. I'd
do everything I could to help that little market develop...

And *anyone* who's not afraid of the stale breath of satan can go to ebay
and search for 'old computers'.

Ok, I promise to say no more on this subject... wait.... Anyone see these
pictures of Marvin's wife at http:\\...

*just kidding* ;)
