I picked up an SS5 locally for $5.  The price was right :-).  It also
has a GPIB board in it, which is unusual.  It included the usual keyboard,
mouse and optical mousepad.  At this point, I'm more interested in
just seeing if I can get the GT to work.  Maybe at some point I will
look into getting a better SS, but my focus is on graphics.  And yes,
I know the GT is a shitty graphics system :-).  But it was free and
even shitty graphics systems have a place in my museum.
