I'm trying to find a new home for this lovely old machine - any takers? I live 
in Bristol but work at Veritas on Green Park so could work something out if 
anyone's interested around Reading.

It's even got the original disks and manuals! Original cost - ?8000 but free to 
you sir :)

Hi All

I was one of the original takers for one of these machines. I've have a play 
with it and learnt a bit but I feel it's time for it to find a new home! If 
anyone was interested the first time round and didn't get one, then let me know 
- I can probably drop it off if you aren't too far from bradley stoke.
