Hi Gang:

Well an 11/60 is going to the scrappers on Monday here in Vancouver. It's
at an acquaintance's house, he got it and never got around to getting it
set up in his basement.

I can't take it due to lack of storage space. Too bad, it's complete,
although it's been stored in a garage and not powered up for about 10

I am, however, going to save the CPU cards, any other cards, and the
backplanes. I will also try to save anything else that can be readily
removed from the machine.

I did try to find a taker for this beast, as you'll recall from the lists,
but unfortunately it's been almost a year and the potential takers have
not been able to get around to picking it up. He cannot wait anymore and
has arranged for a scrap metal dealer to pick it up this Monday.

This is a sad situation, but at least I'll be able to save some of the
machine. I'll post to the lists with my results.
