He's fine with a deposit and then remainder of payment upon collection.
Have also asked if he'd like us to do something in memory of his uncle when the collection is mastered on CD-ROMs etc. But will put that to the vote in here when we're in position to start imaging all the disks.
Again, as previously mentioned, this will only occur if we win - got to keep outlining this bit - someone else could be very determined, just as much as we are, to get this collection. OK, we're in it as a collective but someone else could be just as much an Atari fan as the sellers late uncle was.

on google gave us this page - http://126.96.36.199/search?q=cache:tJapC65hS5YJ:www.uwe.ac.uk/amd/rserch3.htm+%22dr+mark+palmer%22+%2Batari&hl=en
