These days if I don't have a good use for it, I don't buy it. Basically the
only non-PC/Mac hardware I've purchased in the last 4-5 years has been 2
Compaq XP1000's (for running OpenVMS), and a 3rd party Commodore 64
repairable powersupply. There are a couple Commodore 64 and Apple ][ items
that given the chance I'd get, same with select OpenVMS and PDP-11 stuff.
Other than that, I'm pretty much out of the collecting game. I don't have
the time to play with the stuff I have, so why get more.
