  A get your point, but that's a very selfish attitude.  This stuff also
belongs to history.  And when people pointedly seek it out with the
intention of destroying it, competing with others in order to get it,
well, there's just nothing cool about that.  "Art" or any other such
crap notwithstanding.

  And then the audacity to come into a forum full of people who work to
recover and restore this type of equipment, and flaunt it!  "Hey guys, I
know you love and use this hardware, so look how I bought it out from
under you and destroyed it!"  ...this falls short of what I would
consider to be intelligent behavior.

  Now, crashed drive platters, in particular, are a different matter.
They will never run again.  But an functional or restorable drive?  Like
I said, avoid dark alleys..
