It's cheap enough here in the Netherlands, I gather. I hope to never find out
from personal experience as the Jarisch–Herxheimer reaction is a bitch.

To veer more closely on-topic, the Netherlands is turning out to be crawling
with weird European classic computers at quite reasonable prices. I'm off out
shortly to pick up an obscure Philips (i.e. Dutch) computer from the 1970s. I
think he's got a C64 for sale as well, but I don't want any of this modern
rubbish :)
