Yes. My friend went thru 4 months of communications hell with some guy 
over some Amiga 4000Ts. Finally the guy puts them both on ebay and 
craigslist, with a must-be-picked-up-in-2-days kind of thing. Bids were 
coming in from New Zealand and stuff. Matt finally got the guy to talk on 
the phone and we bought the lot from him. Which was mismatched from the 
description since there were books and disks to expensive upgrades that 
weren't in the systems (PPC accelerator.) Still came out okay but wasn't 
as juicy of a deal as first thought but still cool.

Friend ended up driving up 5 hours Friday night, then we bought the 
machines Saturday morning bright and early, then he drove home to 
Norfolk area and picked up a 26' penske truck early the next morning. 
Filled it full of arcades and vintage computers then drove to MAGFest late 
that eve.

Compressed schedule from random deal.
