sorry, i probably came across more irritated than i actually was...
the last time i posted a handful of free things, several people
emailed me off-list, which creates all sorts of confusion both for
people wanting a crack at the freebies, and for me. i just feel that
calling dibs on something free is very much a public dialog, and it
doesn't always seem to happen that way.

in summary: no worries. i don't hate anyone. i wasn't actually
interested in this particular computer. in fact, i prob'ly have one
like it that i need to give away. i was just expressing frustration
with group communication in general :-)

carry on.
