Yes, I've noticed it. I really don't need another CPU (I have
2 already), but I'd love to get my hands on the peripherals,
especially the paper tape reader and punch. The shipping
would be a bit expensive to here as well. I keeping an eye
on it to see what happens. Unfortunately, the prices on eBay
seem to be all over the place, sometimes things go really cheap
and other times they are way over priced.
