Questions about a donation

I contacted the email listed but haven't yet heard back about this
historical old machine.

I, for one (and maybe the only one, it seems) have a lot of respect for
PCs (PeeCees) and what they mean to the industry as a whole. I can
sympathize with some of those that might have some contempt for the
"typical" PC user or who may not appreciate the role of the PC today,
but I recognize the power that they have helped disseminate and their
place in history, at least.

I'll always add another old orphan to my collection.
