- I'm into classic computing, video games, and computing devices. I'm
curious as to what the membership considers "too new" to be classic.
Out of my collection, I would consider my MAC Classic (the
reproduction of the first MAC) and/or the SGI Indigo 2 to be right on
the edge of being new or classic. My oldest ones would be the TRS-80
Model 4 and my Ohio Scientific. I keep a standard collection of other
computers in between those dates.

â¦this set me off laughing again. Good exercise for the diaphragm, I guess. I think itâs a great idea, BTW. If I lived closer than continental distances from your event Iâd definitely attend and buy one.
In any case, the reason I have temporarily delurked is to ask what is the most egregious real-life version number of that kidney that people have encountered? I vaguely recall finding mention of one about half that long when I was looking for something else (I think it was a Microsoft service pack when I was searching for something Mac-related), but unfortunately I didnât really register the details. The longest one I _can_ remember the details of was just something of Knuthâs (TeX perhaps?), which got longer and longer, asymptotically approaching pi, as bugs were fixed. That hardly even rates a mention, though â" not enough egregious verbiage involved.
