To: bill@newbreedsoftware.com

The Alameda County Computer Resource Center (ACCRC) is forced to
liquidate its computer museum due to the current economic climate.
The VCF has been contracted to auction off the ACCRC museum to raise
needed funds for their non-profit operation.

I have put up the first batch of machines at the following URL:


In order to use the system you must have a VCF Community ID.  Getting
one is simple: just following the links and prompts when you visit the
site above and read the instructions.

I have been cataloging the hundreds of items in the ACCRC museum and
will be putting up auction lots weekly until the collection is
dispersed.  There are still many items to go (with lots of duplicates)
so check back every week to see the latest batch.

All items are offered as-is.  Functional condition is unknown unless 
specified in the item description.  For more information about a 
particular item, please contact the VCF and your inquiry will be
answered as soon as possible.

Winning bidders will be notified at the close of the auction (see
below for closing time).  In the event of a tie bid, the winning bid
will be the one submitted the earliest.  Upon receiving a winning bid
notification, payment and pick-up at the ACCRC facilities in Berkeley,
California, is preferred. Payment from winning bidders is due within
72 hours after the close of the auction.  Non-payment will invalidate
your high bid and the item will automatically go to the next highest
bidder (no exceptions).

Upon request, items will be packaged and shipped at bidder's expense
plus a $25 handling fee.  Payment in the form of cash, money order, or
PayPal (in that order) is preferred.  Personal checks will be accepted
on the condition that they first clear the bank.

All items must be sold. No reasonable offer will be refused.  Your
purchases will go towards supporting an organization that over the
years has provided nearly 20,000 refurbished computers to needy
organizations and individuals worldwide.  100% of the proceeds of this
auction will go directly to the ACCRC (minus the handling fees, which
are covering my time...barely).

Please contact me DIRECTLY with any questions you might have of any of
the items.  I'll be happy to get more notes and photos on particulars
items of interest from inquiring bidders.

Best regards,

Sellam Ismail
