I collect whatever //c's I can find for cheap because I'm standardizing on
them as my VCF utility terminal of choice (for taking attendee
registration information, keeping books at the consignment table, etc).
They're nice and self-contained, only needing a display (//c+'s would be
much nicer but they're harder to come across). I have around 10 //c's and
2 //c+'s.

I also take whatever free //e's I get my hands on. They'll come in handy
for something someday (maybe when Hans finishes the C64 super-computer
project we can do one with Apples :)
