[Coladam] Question to all Adamites

The price of anything is what the thing will bring on the market. On 
something like the Adam, that depends on how badly the buyer wants it 
and how interested the seller is in hanging on to it. It's an individual 

There are people in the market that want anything associated with the 
Adam and will pay ridiculous sums to get it. A near-unused very complete 
Adam with box went for over $500 on eBay recently. So be it, there are 
likely only a few dozen like it in the world. And apparently about three 
dozen bidders lusted after it. Were they sane? Who knows?

Similarly I am very reluctant to resell an Adam floppy drive when I get 
one. Though I've had two I got in 1985 still working, I know also that 
the board is very prone to overheating and the drive quickly becomes 
useless and unrepairable. I think the over-$200 price paid recently on 
eBay was foolish and ridiculous; others may disagree.

Meanwhile if anyone thinks he can get rich on Adam collectibles, I have 
a fine huge collection on which I'll happily take bids. Almost all of it 
works, too.
