Better to give the short form of the E-Bay item:


To save shipping, don't take the H19 ... I find that you can get an old
laptop on E-Bay for $5 to $20 and run a terminal program, makes a better
monitor than a real "terminal".

Subject: [sebhc] H8 on ebay with interesting software.

Is there anyone on the list looking to get an H8 system? There is one
on ebay that looks quite interesting - H8/H17/H19 - he has tested it
out AND it comes with some software that the library does not have.
Specifically: Pascal, and "Numerous games" which he clarified to
"The games I have are Exterminator, Munchkin, Gravitron, Y-wing II,
Galactic Warrior, Invaders, Warrior and the classic Adventure."

Gravitron is one of the games (along with Gravitron 2), that I have
been dieing to get a hold of.
Y-Wing 2 would be nice since I have (a working copy of) the first one.
Some of the other names look familiar, although I already have a
'working' copy of Munchkin, and the original disks for Adventure.

The thing is, I have no interested in getting any of the H8 (H17/H19)
hardware (keeping a H89 up and working is enough for me).  And the
shipping quote was really high (>$150 since he would just take it to a
'mailbox etc'-type place). But if some was close enough to Waterford,
MI (looks like it's just NW of Detriot), the shipping fee could be
save by picking it up (you would still need to be confirmed that with
the seller, but based on his choice of using 'mailboxes etc' it seems
he would be open to letting someone come and pick it up).

If anyone is interested in the auction, let me know, I'd be willing to
pony-up some money for the software (more if I get to keep the actual
disks but still some for just getting the software into the library).

With 4 days still left in the auction, I know I won't be able to
justify spending all that money (especially for shipping equipment I
don't want) to just get a few programs, but I'm willing to help, in
order to get the software into the library.

Here is the ebay auction, let me know if you're planning to bid on it,
and we can work out the details. Adding the extra money that I'm
willing to spend to your bid, should help your chances on winning the
