I hope this information helps.
So what (please be sepecific, and include details, e.g.
how COMPLETE the stuff
is, i.e. manuals, drivers, etc.) APPLE][ stuff do you have?
I have working II+, IIe and a IIgs computer with 1.5 meg upgrade board. I have
alot of original diskettes and manuals for most of the common Apple stuff.
one or two of the original red books, joysticks, floppy drives, etc. I
a John Bell Engineering voice synth card with diskettes and a BAL-500 eprom
I'm not an
APPLE-freak, but in order to do a couple of 1-time
tasks, I need a couple of
things. I'm also interested in S-100 cards, particularly if they're
and complete with software, but I don't need backplanes or boxes, nor do I
I do have a few S100 cards. Mostly they're undocumented static and dynamic
memory boards (which are easy to figure out). However, I do have a MM103
modem and documentation but no software and the S100 hayes micromodem with
the direct connect coupler interface. I also have a SMB multifunction card
shape and one or two Diskjockey IIds if I recall, with documentation but no
I have a bunch of 8" diskettes with Xerox 820-II stuff on them including
8" FD drives, as I have plenty.
If you have the apple interface for that Xebec HDD, I'd be interested in that,
as well, maybe, depending on how complete it is.
The Xebec does include the interface and driver diskettes but no documentation.
However, I was able to easily figure it out. Mostly if you just plug it
and do a pr#5 after booting, it'll boot.
let me know, plz

Subject: Possibility of Classic Computing Garage Sale/Auction
So, here's the deal. From time to time, I get the itch to collect classic
stuff. I collect a bunch of stuff, pile it up in my house and then the
itch is scratched
and I forget about it for a while.
What compels me to do this I don't pretend to understand. But the simple
fact is that
most of you are doing such a good job collecting, restoring and preserving
that there's just no need for me to do it. In other words, because I'm
own interests which take alot of space, the time has come to choose either
to be a
classic computer collector or not to be. (IE it's time to sh*t or get off
Therefore, I'm considering sending ALL my classic computing stuff to live
rest of you where it will be preserved and loved. This will free up ALOT
in my house to pursue interests such as art and photography.
And I'll get to see alot of smiling faces taking home treasures.
Mind you, I'd like to get some money back out of this stuff but not
much as I'd get on Ebay.
So I'm considering holding a garage sale/auction at my home the last weekend
October in Des Moines, Iowa. More valuable items
would be auctioned
course of an hour or so while less valuable (more common) items would simply
be priced, haggled and sold.
Stuff that would be sold or auctioned includes: Apple II stuff, Kaypro II,
Epson QX10, Green
screen monitors, Microvax II, Vaxstation 3100, Sun 3/60, 3/110s, Sun mono
monitors, mice, keyboards, books. I have a Cisco IGS router (now 10 years
a livingston 10 port terminal server, a TIE S100 chassis, a Vector S100
computer with 8" hard disk in separate enclosure, around a dozen s100 cards,
macintosh plus and other macintosh equipment, an 8" drive in it's own
a Shugart SA800 bare drive, software, books and all kinds of miscellaneous
hardware and software. I also have a 9 track streaming tape drive that
the Microvax II.
I also have an old tektronix scope with aluminum rolling cart, a 19" dual
