reel to reel now that is not something one sees or hears about anymore.
The 'unattainable' when they were new become the real treasures
later. That is providing one does not need to pay transit for 
blocking streets on a Sunday since the dumpster is too big;-)
What value do the old AT etc have with OpenBSD? I read
a article a while back on how NASA was scouring the internet 
for parts for the AT series. This made me think they can't be 
serious can they? I have one I would like to use for something
since it used to work. I have not spun it in a long time so
this may no longer be the case. However It would be a shame to 
throw it out.
