I worked at Apple for exactly 10 years. I like Macintoshes. I kind
of wound up with a lot of them. Some I bought. Some I found in
dumpsters. Some were engineering samples that would have been
crushed had I not liberated them.

I made use of them even. At one point, I had about six running polyomino
fitting searches on my seahorse shapes. Up in San Francisco, Logan and
Ella each used one of the II fx's as their main terminals. I had another
one out in the common area on a custom-built standup desk. My personal
unit of the time was a 20th Anniversary Mac.

Then I had them in storage for a while. Me, owner of a, well, huge house,
with a rental storage unit and obsolete zero-value gear in it! Well, that's
"stuff" for ya.

I finally got rid of it all. Found an excited collector in Santa Cruz,
he took the whole lot. Yess! Yessss! I'm glad someone was excited
about it!

Oh my god!  I'm a vintage Mac collector,
and this is a dream come true!  I'm in
Santa Cruz and can pick them up as soon
as possible, Friday night would be best.
They would be going to a good home if that
helps, and I'm a nice guy.  Looking forward
to working with you :)

He showed up, and an hour of loading and
pleasant geek chat later, my
Mac responsibility was significant improved.
