Huge shedload of stuff

I'm sure you've all seen this..

Not much which seems really vintage, but there is an IBM AT tucked away there. I could use that for parts but it seems to be all or nothing.

The guy does use container in the plural.

It's a bit of a zero sum game as the cost of disposal of the rubbish (which sounds like about 95% of it) would be huge at $10 per monitor and printer which are recycling fees nowadays. I don't think it's going to happen, unless someone a bit less scrupulous cherry picks the good items and hires a skip for the rest (which is not too uncommon a practice in disposing of e-waste).

Other things are listed are Apple, Commodore, Amiga, Wang. I'm sure there's a few treasures in there but it as an all or nothing proposition the auction is not really open to anyone bar locals. The pictures aren't showing off the 'vintage' items and I think it would require a collector to view to establish these items. I look forward to reading the Q&A section of this auction.

You'll be pleased to know that the guy is now going to split the auction and sell separately by request :

Good luck getting a timely response to your questions though as I watched a few relists now and communication can be a bit difficult. It would be good if the items that are of vintage interest were photographed and displayed rather than the 20 landfill pics.

Yes, I'll be watching the listings with interest to see if anything surfaces.
