About 10-15 years ago a pristine multi-rack fully stuffed HP1000 F-Series
with disc, 1/2 tape, and rack of analog I/O (maybe 2250?) at AuctionBDI. I
didn't have room. Checked the following week and no-one had bid on it and
it was gone, probably scrapped. Minimum bid was $25. :-(

Even worse was the year I graduated from college (1979) my University had
two 1620s in storage, a Model I and II with software, spare packs (for the
Mod-II) they couldn't give away. So young and foolish, with no fore-sight,
was I. :-(**3
