There are a lot of idiotz out there.

I ran into one who'd removed a group of boards from (probably) an -11/40, and
then scrapped away the rest of the machine (including an RK11-D backplane).

I took _great_ pleasure in informing him that the stuff he'd scrapped had
been worth several times what the boards he had 'saved' had been worth.
