Just wondering
Would you have a Intel 286 or 386 AT full size WORKING motherboard you would like to sell?
Something that is complete and ready to go , preferably.
I have case, P.S., and plug in boards (and memory that might be compatible) 
Please let me know, also if you do could you bring to VCF Saturday?
Thank you
Mike R.

With a mix of annoyance and trepidation, I present the list of items I 
will cram into my little Toyota and bring to Festivus. I request half a 
table, please.

I request half a table, because 1) is there any space left? 2) I have a 
plan. I'll do as Doug Crawford suggests: leave the grot in my car to 
reduce the clutter and my backache. Bring items in as interests merit. 
Bring them back to my car when interest abates. Not passing judgement, 
but the sheer volume of items (and my old man's back) suggests to me 
this is a plausible strategy.

Those of you, who are particularly excited about a thing, can email me 
personally and let me know: name a price. I suggest some prices for 
items less common. A working laptop has some utility, if only as a 
terminal for file transfer.

In twenty years, I'll tell whoever listens to me, "I once sold a 
Thinkpad for a bottle of beer; now it's worth a bottle of water! Curses! 
Who knew?" Help feed my narrative.

regards and best of the holidays,
Herb Johnson
