At VCF6, I only brought a few  things:
but now  I have more than ten times that, that needs to go or get  
plus all that is left  of
and at least 100 more boxes  worth.

But, my health is not good enough to even pack it all.
My  assistant at the last VCF died two years ago.
I had been hoping to totally  fill Prius station wagon, and sell enough 
first day to do an entire  additional load the second day.
But, I don't think that it is realiatic to  imagine that I can manage to do 
Besides the need to channel it in  small quantities through "consignment", 
I know that I can't manage even  that level of physical exertion.
So, I'll probably just fill a couple of  boxes with IBM Technical 
References, Windows Resource kits, etc. and end  up with most of the rest 
eventually going to paper recycling.    (most of the FPUIB stuff has been 
in that list for 2 years, so there's  obviously not a big pent-up demand)
