RE: [midatlanticretro] Re: Interesting Thread in vintage-computer.com about ages of hobbyists on topic
Can you offer some tips as far as finding such storage space? With two kids
at home (and a wife who is already annoyed with my collecting habits), about
the only storage I have is a 12x20 outdoor shed...which isn't really a great
place for vintage computers, but it has to do...and is already about full...
Don't dismiss the idea yet. I didn't have huge amounts of space until
fairly recently. It's nowhere near as difficult/expensive to get as
everyone seems to think.

I have an IBM z/890 here. It weighs 2100lbs. No typo.
I can drive a forklift on my own. =)
