I gotta agree, I just can't think of 99.99% of PeeCee hardware as
"rescued".  Not tht I'm trying to be snobbish, but in my mind it's the
same as referring to a Ford Escort as a "collectable" car.  There were a
few rare ones, but overall it's pedestrian.  (Not that Escorts are bad,
I still think the '93 wagon I had was a damn good car, but I don't lust
for another...)
