Well, good for you.

I'm on another continent and this is I think the biggest single
retrocomputing salvage operation I've ever heard of in my life. *And*
it's in a good cause.

My impression is that Jason & his team have a pretty good idea what
they're doing and they've already banned some scalpers.

So what's the problem? Is there anything in there even _worth_
stealing that non-specialists would recognise?

Well there you go then. That would have been of no interest to me.

The LGR guy seemed really happy to have stuff I'd consider mundane and
boring: PC DOS 4, OS/2 1.0 and 2.0, Windows 3, WfWg 3.11. I have all
of those except OS/2 1.0 and that's only because I don't really want
it. Mine are leftovers from when they were new; I worked with the
sutff. To Clint here it's an exciting glimpse of history.

They're around anyway. It happens.

I suspect if a ram-raider filled a pantechnicon there and drove off,
it wouldn't make a 0.1% dent.
