May I just say that I resent that assumption thoroughly. CBM-hackers is
*not* a collectors' list. Nor is it a users' forum. See that word
"hackers" in the name? There's a clue in there, somewhere...

Flame suits at the ready - not meaning entirely to start a flamewar, but
something has to temper my rage at knowing this machine will go to one of
you collector types out there. For more $$$ than I earn in a month.

Curiously, all this happens while I am in Amsterdam, specifically for the
purpose of obtaining MSX machines for hacking. There's probably a lesson
in there, somewhere.
