Speaking of NeXT stuff, I went over and picked up a couple of the NeXT
laser printers from the guy who advertised that he had a bunch of them for

They were basically RMA units, but the parts inside were still wrapped in
their original plastic baggies. I don't know if they work, but between
the three I now have, I should be able to get one working.

The sad part of this story is that this guy had upwards of 300 of these
things that someone was storing in a storage locker. Once the costs
became too great to continue holding on to them, and being that there were
not enough takers, the majority of them were scrapped! If I'd have known
how many this guy had I would have taken them to the ACCRC where they
could have been sold off one by one (or two by two) at $10 a pop maybe.
The ones I bought were only $15 each.

These supposedly came from a local printer retail and repair company
called Printerworx. They apparently had some trade in deal years ago and
all these NeXT printers were part of the result of the trade-in.
