12 years is an extremely long time in computer terms and I don't think that there are all that many people around now who can think in DOS very easily.

I don't hold much hope out for you finding it a good home.

Your probably correct,but its seems a shame just to throw it away.

Don't throw it away!!!!

I remember last year my local museum had an exhibition of technology from 1950s to present and there were some very interesting computer axhibits there. If you've got room in your attic or somewhere, keep it and bring it out for exhibition/show the grandchildren etc.

Far too much "old technology" has ended up on rubbish tips, never to be retrieved. One day your machine will be of some value.
