Is Canada Post "reasonable" on shipping within Canada? I'm in the US, but
*right on the border.*

No, I don't speak French, but yes, I actually know how to say "Sault Ste.
Marie" as I live there. ;-)
If you were in Ontario, I'd have even offered to _drive & pick up_  but
with enough browsing of your webpage, I see you're in Alberta. That's a bit
of a drive... :-(

Computers are computers are computers... but the above snippet, IMHO, has a
much higher need to be saved from the dumpster. There's still bajillions of
CoCos, and projects to replicate the hardware in FPGA form... but disks,
prototypes, etc. once gone are prolly gone forever.
Does it suck that you needed to dumpster a few CoCos? Sure... but if you
have no choice, there's no choice... They're not exactly an endangered
species yet... _Would_ it suck if you dumpstered an irreplaceable
prototype? Yes - on that note, there would be much wailing & gnashing of
teeth, at least on my part... ;-)
Anywho, as always, IMHO, YMMV, etc. etc.

 Contingent on my getting a new job. I've applied for a geek job (IT
Manager) for the city in which I live, and if I get it, my tight money
issues will have been loosened considerably - even enough to afford
Canadian petrol... ;-) Interviews are next Friday, it appears I'm up
against two other individuals...
