I agree, I use it quite often. There are still some bargins in there.
I pretty much got all my vaxen from ebay and still paid reasnable
prices for it. I got a 4000-500 for £30. I also got that disk pack for
it with 14 drives in it for 99p.But a while back there was a 4000-500
that went for £170 with £50 shipping. So it think it's more luck.
I've also noticed with the conversion rate it can be cheaper to buy
from Europe. I needed a power supply for a 4000/90, I ended up buying
a 3 3100's, a 4000/90 and a 4000/60 for £50 shipped from Germany all
with mice and keyboards.
Also ii've made some contacts with dealers that i've bought from. The
seller I bought the disks packs from emailed a couple of weeks ago
saying "You don't know anyone that would be interested in a Cray. It's
a bit specialist I don't think it would get much on ebay" ;)
