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

lol! That gives me flashbacks to my days working at Telecom. The exchange building in Auckland where our severs were was just a giant white tiled room that looked like something out of the 70's. PrimeOS, OpenVMS - those were the good old days (well - kinda forgotten most of the tech, but we're talking way back in the mid 90's now)

Great collection. Oh, and welcome... 8)

I third that motion.

I'd actually watched a whole bunch of your videos before you joined up, to be honest I'd assumed I'd never get to see gear like that running in NZ.

Forgot I'd made a Facebook album which has most (still not quite all!) of the collection in it. Does have more recent stuff than the Corestore website.

Wowzers! I just watched Colossus: The Forbin Project again tonight and this leaves me feeling a little scared. Lucky we don't have any nukes in NZ. Please don't turn them on just in case :)
