 I'm in the Netherlands, so that's not exactly next door. But I don't think I'm
going to have much trouble finding a HP-85, at least I hope not.

 Yes, that sounds exactly like it. Usually they have stuff standing there for a
few months, but this one was gone pretty quick. They normally have lots of
weird computer systems (not at the moment; I checked last Friday and it was
almost empty), but I tend to stick to the smaller systems; mostly what you see
are industrial controllers in 2m tall 19" racks....
