  I thought you had to be smoking crack or something, Marvin; nobody
would actuall *do* something like this...but I just looked at the
auction. It's true.

  Be afraid. Be very afraid.

  Why do we have to stop at things that were originally kits? I can
see it now: "DEC PDP-11/34a KIT! L_at__at_K! RARE!!"

  Better start buying stock in ChemWik!
