Hi everyone!

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

Hi everyone!

Just thought I'd quickly introduce myself, though I've probably encountered many of you in the past anyway. My name's Mike, I'm located in Auckland. Once, I had a very comprehensive vintage computer collection, but now I'm concentrating on my specific interests. Those are the Apple II line, Spectravideo/MSX, Sinclair ZX81, and Atari 8-bit. I am interested in most machines up to the mid 80s, and intend to keep repairing any machines I encounter that aren't running, though currently my focus is downsizing, so I don't work on everything I could. Not enough hours in the day! My current repair project is a Sega SC3000H, in beautiful condition, boxed, with accessories - but a non-runner, as most of these are. I'm pretty sure that it'll be a runner once the replacement RAM arrives.

I'm always keeping an eye out for Apple, Sinclair, and Atari machines and accessories. Particularly Apple II, I'll grab most of that when I find it. I'm still finding gear to sell as well - a Bondwell 12 and a number of VIC 20s are probably to go soon. If anyone wants a Mac monitor from the early 90s, let me know!

Using the name 'falco' here as that was my BBS handle in the late 80s/90s. Why not - it's actually almost on-topic!

Non-vintage computer stuff - I also enjoy working on classic cars, mostly 60s and 70s. I'm a manager at a medium sized software company located in Mount Eden.
