It's already well past the other Bill's top bid of $150, are you local
to avoid the huge shipping  cost? Hopefully you are willing to spend
closer to what is required to win one of these auctions.  I'll make
the same offer to you (or anyone else on the list) as I made to the
other Bill, in your case, since you are willing to let me have the
originals, I'm willing to commit to $75 toward the price of the item
if you win the auction. If someone else in the group wins and wants to
keep the originals, I'll still provide you with $40 if you get the
disk images into the library. (Have I mentioned that I really want to
get this software ;-) )
