Re: Sat. meeting

Hi Dan

That was good news about the working boxes.

I've got a box of HDD's and suppose their condition most likely will be
suss - spose that's why they're in the box -  however I'll drop them in for
test - same with cards - I've got some of those 12" IBM VGA monitors and
access to others - I don't have a problem with them - do you think
Computerbank will ?

I'll try to get hold of some 486 boxes - will we still want some 386 ?- I've
got some
