I will chalk this up as a "difference in standards". "Good things" to
me means really obscure or rare mainframe or minicomputer items. Only
a few PDP-11s would fall into this category (blinkenlight models,
basically), and almost no VAX machines (except a 9000).

Suns? I could built a house with all the Suns that turn up. Unless it
is a Sun-1, I am generally unimpressed and will pass. Same with
Kaypros, Amigas, Altos, etc.

OK, a snobbish attitude, I will admit it.
