Just a question for everybody really... ( I can already imagine my wife rolling her eyes at me if she knew I was posting this...
If anyone's looking to just trash faulty/dead machines that no longer work, please don't... I enjoy the visual design and look of old home machines. I'd rather collect them and see them became display pieces at home then become land fill.
I'm looking for home computers (with their keyboards at least 95-100% intact), old consoles, external peripherals (like classic FDD cases), etc, etc if they're laying about dead and headed for the refuse center/skip bin to make space. I don't want old PC's btw. I have enough of those at home already... lol!
Free is definitely what I'm looking to pay here - I can tell you they would go to a good home (or at least stored downstairs under one until I have time to clean them) and not into a skip bin. This is solely for my personal
collection and enjoyment - I'm looking for anything that I can clean up - and I'm even thinking I may use as an excuse to try my hand at a few Raspberry Pi 'retro' projects (I have a couple of old broken C64's (from Spidersweb the other year) I'm still planning on trying that with).
As I don't drive and I live in Auckland, I would pay for shipping from wherever if it is something I want (obviously I won't want to take everything) and the shipping won't cost an arm and a leg to get it here. If this sounds like something you are keen on offering, just PM me. If I can help you clean up a little, as well as keep a little of the past from becoming the foundations under a new motorway development...
Its a bit of an odd request, but hey... I'm odd like that.
