    Went for an un-fscking-believable $810....!

    Now y'all watch: every ratty half-trashed ASR33 is going to be dug out
of whatever mouldy hole (the which hole it should have been left in!) and
get put on eBay with a $500 minbid and a $750 reserve.

   Then, after I_Am_Putz_Boy and all his buddies get finished bankrupting
themselves - there might be a sudden supply of Teletypes in the "Oh, but I
thought it was worth so much more!" category.

   So this might not be a Bad Thing, overall.

   The $810 Teletype Owner also bought an Apple III for... $166... but of
course it came with SOFTWARE!!! and the original PRINTER!!!!
