I have a large drawer full of original parts, labeled as to the
machine they came out of and why.
For some reason, it never occured to me to label the machine itself
as altered. ;)
What I don't get - and this isn't flame bait, I really don't
understand - is the mania to preserve systems like S-100 sytems, big-box
Amigas, even PDP-11s, that very rarely show up in their factory
I have one box-stock A3000 and one PDP-11/53 that seems to be as
delivered from DEC. The extent of hacking I've done is replacing the
dead hard drive, adding ZIP memory (from an A3000 that no longer needs
it), and installing Amiga UNIX. The 11/53 is all original, including
the OS (RSX11M+ on an RD32), software (centrifuge control), and molly
guard. I do have a couple of other Winchester drives that live in it
some of the time, for beating up on.
Nearly every other machine I have had been upgraded, altered, hacked,
or flat-out hack*sawed* to the owners' hearts' content, so why should I
enjoy them with any less gusto?
