Why is that, can I ask? I mean, it's not like a thief's going to come in and
steal the thing (which is indeed the reason why collectors in other areas are
often secretive) - it would take a truck and a crane, for most models!

Cool story; thanks for the link - but the page says it was a 360/30. (The
smallest 'real' 360 - the 360/20 was a lobotomized 'sorta' 360/.)
