Imagine asking for a $299,000 money order at the post office. Should be just as easy to paypal as well!

;) I donīt get it, is that what they will pay for disposal?


10 years ago I was invited to a destruction party of a GE-Bull Gamma 30, that cost 2M 30 years ago, there were axes and torches available, an 80286 was more powerful.

The relay racks, (19" standard EIA rack cabinets), power supplies, relays, etc. were probably still quite useful. I realize as a computer it was as obsolete as a dinosaur, but the parts were most certainly worth more than the whole.

I can appreciate the history behind the PC collection, but keeping several room sized computers around is a bit impractical.

:) The idea of the party was: "take whatever", motors, relays, anything.
