OK, I understand a little better. However, just a question, which kind 
of business clients wants a very rusty PDP8L for $9,999 ?
Sorry, I'm sure this person is very friendly and I don't want to discuss 
about his business finally. I just regret this incredible rise in prices 
for collector machines that, not so long ago, were languishing in wet 
sheds, probably like this PDP8.
Anyway, this is an endless debate in which I don't want to enter. I'm 
happy to have been able to recover the big part of my machines before 
they cost the price of a kidney.
