What did you make of the thing on the hand truck?


Apple 2

BTW, this looks like the same operation that had the lead that got Bob 
Rosenbloom his IBM typewriter.  I know they bring in pickers and others 
to cherry pick the good stuff ahead of these sales from the sale that 
Bob's typewrite came from.

I picked up some books at the sale for my collection, and in researching 
the person who originally owned the book turned up fresh meat on a book 
scout's ABE books site.  However I got the good stuff, he got the crap.  
I would have liked to have snagged the guy's PhD bound thesis, as it was 
related to engineering mathematics, and is cited widely in other 
literature.  However I got his copies from project Ranger, of which he 
was a leading engineer.

BTW, Brendan, I'm in Orange if you are in the area.
