That's the lesson I learned when still driving a VW-Beetle. In the '80s you could get complete cars for peanuts. In 1994 that suddenly changed. When I had to sell it due to circumstances :( I got more then a good price just because of the fact that I delivered lots of spare parts with it. At this moment I also collect old boards of "I don't care what it is"-computers. With a blow-torch I heat up the back and in seconds I remove the IC's, connectors and other usefull parts. I'll put them in a big box to sort them out later. Two remark about emulators: - you don't wear out the original machine - IMHO develloping software for the C= is done easier on a PC; HD, 80 columns screen etc. And the initial testing can be done on the same PC.
