dive" as a group outing. Of course it's tough to find one vintage
puter sitting somewhere on the wayside, much less a whole skip full,
so newer stuph would be the order of the day (or wee hours of the
night rather). But it's in line with the hacker spirit, and a great
way for gooroos to bond too!

Oops.. sorry about that. Didn't realize I was set to use my bbs email address. Anyhow, I picked upHello Mindless Automation... haven't seen your email address here before, so hello and welcome to our group!Tell us about yourself.- Evan K., MARCH prez
on this group from a post from CHLUG (http://www.chlug.org) I guess I don't currently own anything
(according to the FAQ) that is vintage except maybe an IBM PS/2 (just because its different than
your ordinary Intel-type except it has Win95 on it :o.) Maybe the old PowerMac 6100/66 could be,
its got the extra special PDS slots.. or it can use a Apple/DOS compatibility card and run DOS!
Maybe not vintage, but unusual I guess. I had a stack of C64's, but I gave them all away when I
moved out east.
I started on Apple IIe & Mac Plus I guess.. Worked on TSR80s.. Commodores were big with my friends
and I due to the abundance of games.. never really got into console game systems. Mostly work on
Windows machines now.
As in the previous post, I have no problem dumpster diving for interesting hardware..
