After a lot of thought, and realizing that my interests have changed over the
years - I am retiring from the Computer Collecting Hobby and transferring my
Stuff to someone who actually wants it... ;}
My interest was generally with PDP-11 hardware - and to just 'have the
machine'. I have done that. In over a year, I have not had power on to any of
the machines here - nor any real desire to - and I'd like the room back, from
my storage spaces, my garage, and most of two walls in my office. I will now
devote more time and space to my other passtimes - my electronic music studio,
my vintage Ham Radio AM station, etc.
I have greatly enjoyed my time with this hobby - and have amassed literally
tons of equipment and doc and media - once before I sold my entire collection,
when I left for overseas work - the present 11/44 system was aquired (by remote
control) while I was yet living in southern India.
But now it's time to move on. I'd like to thank the many friends a friendly
folk on this maillist, and I wish you all well in the future. I'll be
un-subbing very shortly, but those of you who have my e-mail are invited to
write any time.
Thanks again to everyone here who has given so generously of their time and
expertise, and I am proud to have played a very small part in preserving Legacy
Computing for future generations.
Not 'goodbye', but "So Long!"
