If you still have the machine we would love to place it in our museum
here in Houston. Let me know how much the shipping would be to zip 77036.

All -

Probably the easiest most non-damagable piece of equipment
associated with this minicomputer that can safely and relatively inexpensively
be shipped just about anywhere.  :-)   Pictures here:

A video is available as well
and I'll make it available if anyone would like to see it.  I can be heard
babbling and holding the cellphone camera, but my friend Dave with the English
accent knew more about the hardware and talks through it, including opening
the case to point out some of the beautiful by-hand wire wrapping.

If anyone
here on the list wants it, I'll send it if you pay shipping.  I'd like to know
it will be used or at least preserved.  Ideally it can live at a museum near a
suitable Burroughs minicomputer.
