>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... We we all belong to the same family-tree. Collectors need hackers to answer questions about repairing machines. Hackers need collectors to maybe get their hands on rare hard- and software and both need users to answer standard questions. And for "hackers" - Ever since that damn movie back in the 80´s i dont like it any more. Everyone involved in the IT / Computer field considers himself as a hacker regardless what he´s doing, even kids making copies of their favourite game are called "hackers" :) >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. <Sarcastic>Well, guess you have to find a better paid job :) </Sarcastic> EVERYBODY would love to have such a machine (for various purposes) and hell, the richer guy winns (sadly) - I also define myself as a collector (and have not paid more then 200$ for a single CBM machine up till today) and part time hardware hacker (my soldering art is not that impressive). So - i would love to have this machine, but i simply cant afford it - and even if i could i guess my girlfriend would kill me :)) So, hopefully someone gets it who can respect the machine and the art of making it.
