And if you don't know who, where, or what they are dumpstering? I saw a
whole pile of 11/23, 11/34, and a lot more stuff I didn't recognize being
given and then thrown away. At that point, I stripped what DEC cards I could
for the gold on the circuit cards (true.) At that point, I had no idea that
people actually might be interested in that stuff. I don't think that is
what you are after. As the old saying goes, ignorance can be corrected.
BTW, I still have those cards someplace, so I didn't actually go through
with cutting the edge connectors off for the gold.

Megan, I highly disagree with your last statement. The ebay postings are
on-topic whether they are of interest to you personally or not. This is a
diverse group of people on this list, and for any one group to say that
anothers classic interest should be excluded from this list is not right.
