    Bidding ended with zero bids.
    It's a pretty lousy time right now to be trying to arrange deals like this.

    Thats true

    Would have been interesting if they had put a low starting bid on it.

    Probably going to be skipped now.

    ANyone in the area, keep your eyes open !

    I'm sure given the situation and a PM something can still be chiseled out for pickup in a month.
    I've never seen such a systm but it looks very similar to a small business system like the IBM System/32.

    I've seen more than my share; made a good living contract programming these babies back in the day. Shame if it gets scrapped but finding firmware & software could be a problem.

    Yup, same class as a S/32.

    Perhaps a UK Museum would take it, but it would be "take it". Most have no space...

    There's one of its ancestors at the science museum; maybe they'll take it:

    They (Science Museum Group) are not accepting donations at present nor are TNMOC. Jim Austin might take it...
