Well, hopefully  things  will end  well and things   will find the highest

Yeah, I  figured something like this would have happened eventually; running
a  computer museum is pretty far out of Goodwill's charter. That is  what
happens when you give your old stuff to Goodwill; they sell it.  Hopefully
some of the cooler stuff gets back to the original owner, and  there's
always the proverbial "guy with deep pockets" but I would be  disappointed
had I been a donor or volunteer. It's sort of disappointing to  see how the
whole thing was handled.
