    Why? Aside from the obvious limitations of a dumb terminal, the parts were increasingly hard to come by and very expensive. Light pen = $300+; Mouse = $10.

    If they are worth so much, why did you throw them away?

    It's really a supply and demand thing. We were one of the last people on earth using them. So when we went to sell them, no one was buying. But when we wanted to buy them, they had us over a barrell. So we ended up throwing them away. We probably should have sold one to the Smithsonian!
    So far:
