    To anyone interested,
    I did not state a price, but subsequent inquiries were told that they  
    were $10 each plus $4.95 shipping.  I also explained that the cases  
    were cracked and the staples in the instruction manuals were rusted.   
    But the computers themselves are in good shape.  The $10 is just to  
    cover the effort to dig them out and pack them up for shipping.

    Wasn't aware that Celestaire carried them (at least I can't find them
    on their online catalog), was it a special offering maybe?
    At any rate, I got one of those on EBay a year or so ago but haven't
    had time to play with it yet, though with several of us re-visiting the
    "manual plotting mode" I did break it out and put it on my "To Do"
    pile. So maybe a bunch of us can learn how to work that one together,
    at least we've got a resident expert (i.e. Gary) to run questions by if
