 Damn!  Which means that I either need to trade you something permanently
 for it, or I need to pry it from your cold dead hands.  :-)

Uh, no, that means the cold dead hands thing is your only option.  (I
don't
trade from my personal collection. B-)

Now there's an interesting question.  What do guys intend to have
happen to your collections when you die?  Will your children truly
appreciate it like you did?  Will they ask the Salvation Army to haul
it all away?  Will they donate it to the Smithsonian?  Will you have
it buried with you???

If my son won't appreciate my collection, then I'll sell it/auction it. I
intend to carry an Ultima 6 moonstone and an Ultima 4 Ankh to the grave
though ;)

Read my latest Shoppe column (if you haven't already), which deals with
exactly this subject.

I just read it -- I'm shocked. You're not leaving your RPGs to me or your
LGoP2 to Jim...
After all we've done for you... *snif snif*

Me personally:  I want it to go on auction so that it can go back into the
hands of collectors.  I'm sure Melissa would be happy to orchestrate that, as
she 1. would probably need the money at that point, and 2. is more than willing
to haul my software collection out of the house while I'm still living :-)
