Such an Offer!! - 01/09/03 06:32 PM

I'm gonna be posting this on eBay, but I thought I'd give you lucky members of MM forum a chance to get it before anyone else. Yes sir, to one lucky guy will come all of the original styrofoam packaging for a Mac 512 Ke, circa 1986. You get two big pieces of styrofoam that cushioned the all-in-one marvel of computing plus two beautifully engineered styrofoam boxes that used to hold the mouse, the keyboard, and the floppies and documentation for the Mac.<br><br>So, who wants it?

I have the computer, and I had the box up until teh roof leaked and it got wet. It's still in the house, though, so I can throw it in with the styrofoam. An even better deal! <br><br><br><br>Great wits are sure to madness near allied.--John Dryden, "Absalom and Achitophel"

Re: Such an Offer!! - 01/09/03 08:19 PM

No, but I do have a small bottle of air that I trapped in there when I opened the box back in 1986. I can throw that into the bargain too. This deal just gets sweeter by the minute <br><br><br><br>Great wits are sure to madness near allied.--John Dryden, "Absalom and Achitophel"

Re: Such an Offer!! - 01/10/03 09:52 AM

I just don't know what this world is coming to. I left the styrofoam and the box out in front of my house last night--just no room inside, you know. Well, this morning, the whole thing was gone. Last I saw, the box was sticking out of the rear end of a big ugly truck with "Waste Management" on it.<br><br>What am I gonna do with the eBay auction?!<br><br><br><br>Great wits are sure to madness near allied.--John Dryden, "Absalom and Achitophel"
