A library near me has art work facade about 20 feet tall with the castings of
old radios, tv's and computers. Some of these I'd have liked to have had. I
doubt any were saved after making the original casting.

I can accept someone keeping the front panel and dumping the computer more
so than when on strips a keyboard from the terminal. Two reasons - One
because with the front panel one can build something underneath to replace
the original computer. Second - The computer may simply be too big to keep
But I am sure there is a Fridays restaurant somewhere in the USA with a
UNIVAC front panel or something sad like that on the wall.
