Welcome new members
- It looks like we gained three new members after the event at InfoAge last
weekend. Newbies: please introduce yourselves. We're interested in your
takes on computer collecting, how you got started, where you live, etc.
- Well, I just joined, but due to mention on classiccmp (which I've been
trying to keep up with for a while). My name is Alexey and I'm a
computerholic :-) I live just outside DC.
I've been collecting whatever old computers I can get my hands on; I've
got about 40-50 machines ATM, but I don't get to play with them very much
due to lack of time :-\ The biggest thing I have is an AS4000, the
smallest is a Timex Sinclair. My most recent acquisition os a Mac SE/30.
I got into collecting after a friend of mine got a 128-node transputer
machine for his birthday ($75 from the university surplus store). I've
finally gotten some transputers of my own, and I'm trying to think of ways
to put them to use; fortunately the campus library hadn't surplussed the
transputer books they had, so I've got most of the info I need.
