Well,it finally went to a last-minute sniper for $164.06. That is a 
pretty stiff price for a pretty box of almost 30 year old computer 
parts. Note that the seller does not know if it works or much of its 
history.

For the record, in order to test an Adam disc drive you need an Adam, 
because the drive works and boots from the Adamnet. You also need an 
Adam formatted disc.

My expectation is that the buyer will find he has bought himself a 
rather expensive doorstop. Since he's quite possibly a collector who 
wants a showpiece and doesn't care if it works, he could be well 
satisfied. He might not even try it to see if it works ever.

To the buyer it looks nice.To a serious Adam user wanting a working 
machine, the warning flags are flying high and bright.
