The surplus people here aren't very flexible. Your approach might work but
we'll see. Anyway the auction isn't for several weeks (auctions happen just
before the beginning of the quarter; one just happened).

It's possible that Surplus is following a rule they didn't create (it could
even be a state law, since the UW is a state university). I think they're
also rather lazy. They auction off PC compatibles and Macs individually.
Even modern but exotic things like Suns seem to remain in a pile.
