Ton & Haff no computer experts

Postby RonTurner on Sat Jul 12, 2014 3:17 pm

Just "Watching Auction Hunters" , Alan is getting really ecited about his $60 camera while im getting all excited about the PET behind him, then there is a super rare boxed computer on the shelf at front (in box) (I saw this episode mentioned on a website somewhere and the site points out the rare boxed computer) , Alan & Tonn never mention the computer, I guess it was thrown out or something like that as they show off there good finds.
:o

There is a boxed PDP-11 right by the garage entrance and Alan and Ton are to stupid to even spot it, shame :P

(In fact under the PDP-11 is shelves of old computers - at least 6 ) and they just added the total profit,
no money for the computers, they don't even rate a single mention :shock:

Alan was standing in front of a whole shelve of old gold, and he was searching for something good, he found a camera holds it up and says: this is the best we will find! And I'm trying to call out to Alan - but look behind you, a PET and boxed PDP-11! !!!!!

Obviously Alan was in camera club and Tonn was into his D&D ?

I wonder what happened to the PDP and the PET? Binned? I hope not! I'm sure someone in the production team knew their value, or importance.

Just found a article about it. I'm sure there will be more to come though.
