As some of you may know, I have Rlee Peters' collection of stuff, which
seems to be largely composed of documentation.  So far, I've been
unloading it on Ebay.  The recent discussions about Ebay versus the
vintage computer marketplace got me thinking.

I'm attracted to the idea of listing as much of this as I can at the
vintage computer marketplace because 1) the people who buy stuff there
presumably know what they're buying and 2) I can easily list stuff and let
it be for sale until it's sold.  Does anyone here have a ballpark idea of
how long stuff would sit there until it gets sold?

As I picture in my mind's eye the two storage units of stuff, I think I
might have been a little too eager to get it.  Oh well.  At least I have
some vintage items that I wouldn't otherwise have.  I'm keeping about four
cubic feet of stuff.  The rest I need to find a home for.
