To all concerned,
I discovered this little gem up for auction on E-Bay.
One of the stickers state that it is Seventh Edition from Bell Labs
I have placed a small bid on it ($5.00 US).
That's your maximum, right? I see $2.25.
1. Would it be worth continuing to bid on?
Possibly. It's a pity it's not confirmed to be readable. In any
case, the rule for eBay bidding is to wait until the very last minute
(literally a minute or two before the auction closes) and to know what
your maximum bid is. Specify it and you'll only pay enough to outbid
anybody else (if possible).
2. What should my highest bid be?
I'd be inclined to go to about $20 or so, but that's my feeling.
3. Would TUHS be interested in the tape if I should
win it? I don't
have a tape machine or computer for such tape.
I'm surprised that Warren said no here. It's possible that some of
the code might be different; it would certainly be worth comparing.
