I was hunting for odd bits in my piles the other night and was
shocked at the decay of several plastic parts. The ends of a
set of GPIB cables for an old CBM disk drive were covered in a
white powder coating - not mold, but slow decay of the plastic.
Other plastic bits went from flexible to stiff to the point
of breakage. This is in a heated basement. The humidity
might be a bit higher than I want, but I do run a dehumidifier
in the maximum of summer. It's never damp enough to rust metal.
I wonder if ozone is a concern. I do have two Proliant
servers running down there.
My kids wanted to see a Commodore 64 in action. It took me a
while to find a combo to get from RCA to cable (F?), and sadly
it didn't work well on a TV with today's automatic tuning.
The sound was barely audible. Clearly I needed a cheaper TV.
I couldn't find (and didn't remember if I ever had) the Y/c /
audio cable for the C-64.
