   By "very interested", Mark means "is actively pursuing".  Some of our 
donors are willing to foot the bill for the acquisition and subsequent 
retrieval trip; we've just about got it covered.

   For those who may be unaware, LSSM is a public minicomputer/mainframe 
museum in Pittsburgh, a registered 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, 
that has been open for about six years.  The two DG machines in this 
auction will have a good home with us; it is our intention to restore 
them and place them on public exhibit for use.  We have an established 
track record of "getting the job done" in this context.

   I'm letting this crowd know in case any of the current bidders are 
here and just trying to keep these machines out of the scrap stream, 
etc.  We are donor-funded and don't have a lot to spend on this.

   If you would like to support us in this endeavor, we accept donations 
by check or via PayPal, see for more 
information.  Donations may be tax-deductible depending on your personal 
tax situation.

   Thank you for your consideration.
