I was VERY close to being "impolite" as the 4 pigs that got to the place
first had each made a horde of the various items, including one guy with 4
of the 4033A monitors. I made the suggestion that if just one of them
couldn't be shared to me, maybe I would just make a cash offer for one to
the guy running the scrap yard. I choose to live, but it really annoyed me
that these guys not only hogged them all, but duped the scrap guy into
thinking they weren't very valuable.

OK, I'll split the difference with you, HP 725/50 PA-Risc machines. I
bought four of them, and may pick through parts on a few more next Tuesday
when I pick them up (ran out of time the other day). I booted a couple of
them up, including a 715/33 and they were running HP-UX version 3.08 I
think. They all had passwords etc., but I have the CD set, so I should be
able to just reinstall etc.
