When we moved to Melbourne from Brisbane, we needed to do a fire sale 
on spurious equipment - we wound up giving three AppleIIs (one a clone)
and four or five Atari STs to another techie friend of ours.

Right now, I'm contemplating begging the use of a laptop that will run
vim, cvs, and (ideally) some sort of Handspring/Palm syncer. I'll be
heading to the States in April; and will probably want to be writing.
