The sad thing is that he had a 360/40 (2040) cpu which he now says is in
bad shape that is for
sale. $25,000 gets you a 40' container of really nice stuff though.
i had asked him if he had a full mainframe at one time and he said he
did not. now, if it is
what remains after his ebay auctions, there won't be much left, sad to say.
But a 360 would probably be a steal at 25K, unless someone knows where
one is for
Maybe dkdk will swoop in and buy the parts he does not already have of
the 360, and
it will end up complete somewhere. Hope he is acquiring for a museum
somewhere, or his
pile comes to view in public, it must be quite nice by now.
