HP-85 (refurbished) on eBay

HP-85 fans,

Just in case any of you didn't see the refurbished HP-85 on eBay, it's item number 290214406260. They cleaned it up, repainted it, and put a new tape drive in it. Comes with software titles and others are available. $795 Buy it Now (a lot less than it cost new, even not counting inflation).

"Jesu, Joy Of Man's Desiring": http://youtube.com/watch?v=iPeVIuRjUi4

Vintage computers as religion: what a concept. Worship daily at the silicon altar.

Jesu, joy of man's desiring
Holy wisdom, love most bright

Drawn by Thee, our souls aspiring
Soar to uncreated light

Word of God, our flesh that fashioned
With the fire of life impassioned
Striving still to truth unknown
Soaring, dying round Thy throne

Notes: Originally by Johann Sabastian Bach
The original song continues with these words:
Through the way where hope is guiding
Hark, what peaceful music rings
Where the flock, in Thee confiding
Drink of joy from deathless springs
Theirs is beauty's fairest pleasure
Theirs is wisdom's holiest treasure
Thou dost ever lead Thine own
In the love of joys unknown
