Re: Unfortunate end...

Bummer. That stuff wasn't a total waste :( Some of the A500 floppy
drives can be used in 1581 drives, or even used to swap out bad drives
in a 500, 1010, etc.

The non-yellowed keyboards and cases could also probably be salvaged
and sold to people needing to repair their stuff.

Instead of throwing the stuff away, it could have been offered to
someone in the groups or even listed on eBay as a parts stash.
