Retro Computing Society of RI

I'm fowarding this from Geoffrey Rochat of the RCS/RI, confirming that they do,
in fact, still exist.

Oh yes, the RetroComputing Society of Rhode Island is still very much in
business ( {As is the Rhode Island Computer Museum
(} I don't know why you couldn't get through by e-mail,
other than the fact that "Shrimp", the RCS/RI's faithful Sun server, has its
good days and its bad days, and it's anyone's bet what today is. And I
don't know whether the phone is still there or not, but unless it's a
monthly Open House it's a crap shoot as to whether anyone's on-premises to
pick it up. I for one don't subscribe to Classic Comp, having dropped it
after having watched a particularly ferocious case of flaming break out, so
this was kindly forwarded to me by Marc Bileau, who is very active in the
RCS/RI's activities.

So, just what is this item up for auction? I doubt we're bidding on it in
any case, as money is a bit tight all around right now. But if it's good
we'd be delighted to receive a donation.
