Whoever bidder x***n is, someone should explain to them about snipe bidding services.

What I want to know is, how do front panels of historic computers so often get
separated from the rest of the computer? Do people just rip them off as souvenirs
and scrap the rest of the machine? It's very hard to understand.
I found several orphan PDP front panels at the ACMS warehouse diaspora last year.
And rescued all that I found. But it's so sad.
