Greetings!

Introduce yourself. Tell people why you are interested in vintage computers and what (if anything) you've got.

Greetings!

Just a quick note to say hello, and let you know a little about me. I'm primarily a console collector, with a particular fetish for handheld Nintendo items, but my interest wanders into the realms of computing as well.

To ensure this wasn't a wasted click for you, here are some pics I took of the Video Game History Museum stand at E3 a couple of weeks back (apologies for the quality):

Hi Phantom, welcome to the forums :)

I had a Donkey Kong Game & Watch, but sold it a couple of years ago because I didn't use it, and I didn't want to start collecting them. I've regretted selling it ever since :(

It was a booth at E3 in Los Angeles. They were tucked into the side of one of the main halls; I wouldn't have spotted it if it wasn't for the eagle-eye of one of my team! Was stoked to take a look around, so much awesome stuff there.

Hah, I'm sure over-reaction to regret is the seed of a large percentage of collections ;)

I wish I'd kept many similar items from my youth too :<
