Don't know if anyone else pursued it....
I emailed the guy and received about 6 very nice pictures of the TI990, disk
drives, and peripherals he has.
In a word, it's simply a gorgeous system. Looks to be mint condition. One
six foot rack with the TI990 cpu and programmers front panel, and four
"dishwasher style" disk drive units with media. The terminals are TI as well
and perfectly retro. Even the racks are original TI racks.
All said, a very very nice machine. However, he seemed a little too key to
inform me that he knew the system cost $250,000.00 USD years ago. My
suspicion is he thinks he can get at least 100K for it ;) Not to mention, I
believe the system is located in the middle east but I'm waiting on
confirmation from him on that. I wont be actively trying to obtain this
system, just felt like asking about it :>
