LOL centallica. Thought about charging admission into your dinosaur museum? You have a very nice set up there.

I toss/give away/sell off my old crap. Mastered the science of not hoarding material things I no longer have need for. Makes for cheaper/quicker times when moving house.

Wow a museum to the company that was Commodore. I still have my Amiga A500 with the extra 512MB module and external drive in my basement waiting for the day I can set up my own shrine to the early days of gaming.
Smoke me a kipper, I'll be back for breakfast.

Commodore will always hold a special memory for me

I started out with the Commodore PET in grade 6 as the "Captain of the computer area" where they were set up at our public school (based upon me always being there I could watch and clean up afterwards)

Then I bought my first Vic-20 in 1982 and always felt I never mastered it/did everything I wanted to in terms of programming but threw it away in 1992 (and regret it ever since) and about 3 years ago I started getting back into collecting and repairing them.

There's lots of forums and groups of similar nuts around to mingle with. I just picked up a SuperPET which was the Cadelac of the PETS and will be getting a disk drive for it this week (trading).

I've had a few "Retro Parties" for all the nerds to come play the oldies with other interests that I have also (Home Theatre, Pinball, MAME)....

It's all great therapy for being married with a 15 month old

Default My Commie room.

Here's a small pic of part of my C= computer room. There's an Amiga 500, a C64 and a C128D and a few disk drives and quite a few floppy boxes to the left. Oh! And a Rubik's cube.

Well it looks like Deadfyre and myself have one thing in common. I started working on computers more years ago than I care to remember about.

So basically it is not what I have around my workshop it is more like what I dont have is more the question. Anything from a working 8088 right up to a running AS400 server and everything inbetween and beyond. So if you are in New Zealand and you want an obsolete part or programming I should have it somewhere in my workshop. Just dont ask me for my Quad Core Phenom or I might have to fight you for it.
