At VCF6, I only brought a few things:
but now I have more than ten times that, that needs to go or get 
plus all that is left of
and at least 100 more boxes worth.

But, my health is not good enough to even pack it all.
My assistant at the last VCF died two years ago.
I had been hoping to totally fill Prius station wagon, and sell enough 
first day to do an entire additional load the second day.
But, I don't think that it is realiatic to imagine that I can manage to do 
Besides the need to channel it in small quantities through "consignment", 
I know that I can't manage even that level of physical exertion.
So, I'll probably just fill a couple of boxes with IBM Technical 
References, Windows Resource kits, etc. and end up with most of the rest 
eventually going to paper recycling.   (most of the FPUIB stuff has been 
in that list for 2 years, so there's obviously not a big pent-up demand)
