Sorry, I didn't mean to upset your plan (and you); I just didn't know if
anyone was watching for VAX-11/780 parts, they come by so rarely.
We have discussed this topic before, but let me recapitulate one point about
pricing and valuations: if we want to stop this stuff being scrapped, we need
to make sure the prices realized are well above scrap. This will have several
i) If people only get low (scrap-region) prices, why go to all the
bother/hassle of listing things on auction sites; just proceeed directly to
'Go'. ii) Hopefully, if values are non-trivial, the word will get around, and
people who have this stuff will go to the effort to list it, instead of
leaving it to moulder, etc.
Yes, I understand that will make this a more expensive hobby, but TANSTAAFL.
