Speaking of Next stuff... look at what this moron is doing...


he has two of these listed on ebay right now....

If anyone needs some spare next parts, this might be the right guy to
e-mail (well, if you need a cpu board anyway).

>A funny blackholeinc story. Over a year ago I was reasearching black NeXT 
hardware and I came across the blackholeinc.com website. For reasons unknown, 
the guy who runs blackholeinc has put his personal blog on the site. Go to the 
'about' link on the main page to access it as it follows from the FAQ. Like most 
blogs, it consists of page after page of rambling drivel - though it does give 
some insight into the author. He is clearly derranged.

is strong with this one, you'll have to cover shipping!"

through the blog in early 2002. Is anybody game enough to email him to see if 
they can score a free NeXTStation?
