Nice to eMeet you. I am located in Wilmington, Delaware. To answer
your question below; yes I attempt to do development on the old
machines. My angle at this hobby is to fix and restore the old
machines and then test by running programs or writing and saving
programs as part of the testing procedure. I used to write BASIC
programs in my earliest employment days, and also program modems.
Currently among other things I am UNIX/Linux person (in my real job)
