This is the artist formerly known as Mr_Roboto. Well, I'm in my 5th year of college and have been a bit too busy to be on the boards lately. I also have other interests taking my time, but so goes life. I've got basicly a semester and a half left of school, so I'm wanting to clean up my computer collection. I've got all sorts of stuff I havn't inventoried yet, but what I know I have is a pile of MFM drives, at least a 5160 and 5162, Epson Equity II (complete) a non functional IBM displaywriter with a ton of documentation, and tons on tons of parts. These parts are free for pick up in Carbondale, Illinois and I'm willing to drive a few hours away one weekend if you're willing to pay for fuel plus some cash for my time. If anyone's interested I'll get more details of what I've got, it's quite extensive. I may even have a few dare I say-mac pieces floating around.

Feel free to post what you've got in the "Buy - Sell - Trade" section. I should be heading to Carbondale in October for Reflections Projections at U of I.

Carbondale... I was thinking Champaign! I've been away too long when I get the cities mixed up like that.

I know where Carbondale is, it's there around Marion, Benton, and Eldorado. (You're from the area if you know how "Eldorado" is pronounced.)

I'd assume it's pronounced like the car Cadillac made. But then again you people have weird accents. Smile

Hey Puck if you end up going and Robo is ok w/ it, grab me a MFM drive. I'll pay for shipping.

It's El-door-ray-doh. Trust me, I lived there.

I'm going to Champaign this weekend, but I can't guarantee I'll pick you up a MFM drive... They're only 3 hours apart!

Welp, it's well past that weekend and I don't have a new-old MFM drive so I guess that was a no. Smile

...worth asking anyway.
