Hey all.

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

Hey all.

Postby manuka on Thu Nov 01, 2012 10:52 am

Just a quick introduction, I'm not much of a vintage collector as I share a small house with my partner and 3 children, although I am currently playing around with an HP Vectra 386/20N at work, which brings me to how I discovered this site. I work for Molten Media where we recycle and refurbish I.T. equipment and I'm the person who sorts out the gear we stick on TradeMe. I had a google of our company name and found a few mentions on here. It's great to see some of the machines I've sold going to loving homes :D

My computing background started with an Atari 800XL then on to a Commodore C64, Amiga 500 then a generic 486 DX 4-100, I was a website designer for a few years before starting at Molten Media about 2 years ago which was quite a learning curve as all my training was in programming.

Hi and welcome to the forums!

I might have just bought an Epson QX-10 off you? :)

Good to see some of this old gear appearing on Trade me.

:D

The Epson QX-10 is one of the few models left on my "to get" list (found on this page). I wanted to add it to the collection as an example of well-made Japaneses CP/M machines that were attempting to gain a foothold in the business market before the IBM (and clones) behemoth stomped theme out.
