The psycho, er, ah seller in this case is "computer knowledgable" to
quote one of his emails to me in the past, and could do the scanning
as a service to collectors as well, and not detract from the value
of his items.
I commented to him about something in the past, and got back a
hate filled response from him and would never buy anything from
sad to say, he has a lot of stuff that probably is significant. which
points up one of the things that can be really frustrating about buying
anything, the bad seller.
I have had few bad experiences with people on ebay, but I didn't
even buy from this guy and he went nuts.
as to "behind glass" in museums, I hope that is not a permanent
situation with respect to documentation and software.
