I only seem to only have time to catch up with me mail once a week or so.
I just found your post to the ClassicCmp list about the PETs. Are they
all gone yet?

Where are you located? Toronto area? Shipping PET stuff would be very
expensive, I think. If I had a friend in Toronto I'd send him over to
grab whatever you've got. :)

The SuperPET is especially nice. A friend of mine has one, with an 8050
or 8250 (don't remember which) and all the language software and manuals.

I've been looking for a BASIC 4 system and DOS 2 or higher disk drive for
a while. All of my PET stuff is more antiquated then the stuff you've got
on the list.

A 4032 and an 8250 would be ideal. I like the small 40-column screens.
