Dang.... I didn't even know about the auction in 92! :-)  Presumably
it was in Beaverton?  I lucked out in finding a 4010 and a 4014; would
love to get a 4051/4052 since they can be programmed standalone.  I
have people occasionally asking me to sell my 4010, but it took a good
6 years to find one, so there is no way I'm going to sell it :-).

Ooh!  A Lilith.  I lucked out and have 4 main units, but I need docs,
and information on hooking up keyboards, mice and monitors.  I think
the monitors are special for the Lilith.  What did you get besides the
main unit?
