Hi from Auckland

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

Hi from Auckland

Postby Mark0x01 on Tue Mar 08, 2016 7:20 pm

I've a collection started in the seventies.

A few S100 or CPM systems including classic like Cromemco, Osbourne 1 and some kiwi built models.

Synertek Sim-1 and KTM-2/80 (my very first computer, owned from new)

In the PC line, a Sirius, IBM PC, IBM portable and a few early x86 and Pentium 90.

BBC B and Master co-processor

Some Sun Sparc II and III

And a pile of parts, boards, mountain of floppies and drives of all sizes, tape drives of most types with tapes, hard disks, controllers etc....

I no longer toss much stuff out, as it is getting too expensive or simply impossible to find.

In all, a huge range of stuff collected over my 35+ years in IT.

I'm currently working on cataloging what I have, and gathering info where possible.
It will take a few years at the current rate, and then the job of getting them all working again.

Welcome Mark,

Knowledgeable CP/M and S100 folk are in short supply. Thanks for joining the forums!
