Evil Lurker Won, Gets His Parts

Chuck was right about the guy that won the bid on
the MicroPDP-11/73... the buyer's name is Chris
Hoaglin, and all he is interested in is f*cking
up a working computer to end up with parts he
can sell to fund his greedy little schemes. He
wants the backplane and all the cards. I wish the
seller would have said NO, but that was not to be.

FWIW, I was going to steal one part- the plexiglass
door of the TS05 tape drive- to put in place of
a broken one on a Cipher. The broken Cipher door
works, even broken, and will still work when glued
back together- it will just look like sh*t. How-
ever, I would have either preserved the system in
all other ways, or even tried restoring it.

Well, souless b*st*rds are prolifigate, and some
are circling overhead like vultures.

The only good note: I'll get the TS05 for US$5.00.
I doubt I'll take the rack. Perhaps someday I'll
need a part from the TS05 (assuming it *IS* really
a Cipher streamer inside).

Oh well. Hi ho.
