I'm located in Pittsburgh and may be interested in some items that you have.
I'm trying to get a group together to showcase our collection for the
local Science Center here.
Together with my collection and others we hope to put on a nice exhibit.
At the moment, I was looking to see what S-100 boards and peripherals
I guess when you get things inventoried, I'll know better what we could use.
