Oh the stuff I didn't know to grab when I first went to WeirdStuff in
Milpitas back in, oh, 1993. I only recall seeing a couple Lisas there
(priced at what I thought was way too much at I think $50 each). I did
get this interesting Northern Telecom terminal phone (that I still haven't
gotten to work...I never got the right power supply with it).

Too bad Halted doesn't ever budged on their as-is prices. Not that they
have much of anything that cool.

It's a shame Haltek went away. Excess Solutions may be the next to go
