Richard, what you do for terminals is certainly worthwhile. However,
given the description of a terminal (e.g. user's manual), I can
easily emulate one or, if worse comes to worst, build one from modern
A CPU is much harder.
Peripherals (e.g. tapes, disks, printers) are the hardest. If I
were to collect something for preservation, it'd be peripherals.
