Hmm... Maybe it's the HUGE pile of F-key templates(those flimsy plastic
things that always disappear) that go on the Apple Extended II ADB
keyboard? Or is it the Mac LC power supplies? Nah, only two of those. Need
lots more. Wait, I know! It's all those broken radios. Don't ask me why,
but for some reason all I end up with is broken radios. Missing batteries,
broken parts, just plain in pieces... Hallicrafters S-38, Santec ST-440uP,
a pair of marine VHF HT's, a few screwy old crystal controlled radios, a
Gonset Communicator... And none of them work right! Another possibility
would be the pile of at least 30 expansion cards for the IBM Series/1.
Mostly asynch comm cards. Maybe not very screwy, but I absolutely LOVE
older IBM equipment. Not sure why. That and Macintosh stuff.
