I'd be open to buying and storing it, but I currently don't have the
means to run it due to being on the other side of the country from the
location where I'd be able to store it.  It's a beauty of a system, so I
hope it doesn't go to the resellers.  The suggestion the seller makes of
turning it into a keg cooler is not a pleasant one.  If no one else is
set on having it here, I'd be willing to provide a safe home for it.
