I've been trying to contact him, but I think they're on holiday. Anyway, I'd appreciate the excuse to visit a cbm-hackers colleague while I'm out there :) > If San Diego (which is near the California/Mexico Border) isn't a problem for > you then go for it.

Possibly San Diego is too far; whereabouts do you live, Larry? My seller is pressing me for the Zip code of where I want the stuff sent, so he can calculate shipping charges. I managed to convince him into unlisting the items and selling them to me for the starting price; how's that for dodgy dealing? :) The items are three MIDI interfaces, their software, and a music keyboard (with interface for C64); nothing is actually by Commodore themselves and it should arrive as a cardboard box which could be hidden away until the summer. As to the 1200XL, well, thankyou *very* much, Larry - we'll sort out where to send it once I know where that is, but if it's going to be yourself then obviously there's no need to bother ;) If you see other 1200XLs at the more sensible prices of thrift shops, flea-markets, etc, then please get them for me too - they just don't exist over here and it would be good to have a suitable collection. I think I'm okay with 1050 disk drives, unless yours is going spare - I have two working and one non-working. One of them lives on top of a 1541C, on top of my old Cyrix machine which is dedicated to 5 1/4 inch disk transfers, using X1541 and the Atari equivalent - the APE 'ProSystem'. > Unfortunately I've only come across one 128DCR in my excursions ($7 without > keyboard, a bargain!) and it isn't for sale at this time. :P Understandably not; I have a friend in Texas looking out for one for me, and I'm doing the same for a plastic C128D for him. Anyone else is most welcome to find me a cheap 128DCR too ;) > Post a shopping list and I'll tell you if I have it sitting around or if EBay > is the best route (rarely!) thrift shops and flea-markets in California are > great for computer collectors. ;) Well, the 1200XL and 128DCR are on the list, as are any computers in the Timex/Sinclair range. That's all really; I'm looking forward to having a chance to visit these shops and markets myself - will someone be my guide? ;) Hope the other list members don't mind reading this collecting-specific stuff!
