Yes but who will pick them up this weekend?  The having is easy, the
getting is the problem.

I have one SGI-branded monitor and a few NEXT's already, I don't need them
myself.    I was just there yesterday and took all I could fit.  Note -
these are the pinnacle of large CRT displays before the LCD came out,
they're pretty damn big monitors that not everyone can carry on their own.
These are "monitor afficianado" monitors.   One is an engineering sample
color Next monitor from cube machine.  Some are "just" Trinitron's I think.
