    Those are words of high praise, sir, and I stand both flattered
and humbled by them.

    One of the great fears I have is that there won't be enough "new
blood" in the venture to keep the elder machines around until they
are actually understood to have valid historical worth.  I find it
wonderful that lists like this exist, and that there are younger
folks getting involved.  I just hope it's enough, because in a very
real sense we are conservators of a slice of rapidly-disappearing
history, and it's a very fragile history right now even though it's
an incredibly rich and compelling history.

    Thank you.
