I am Siggy.
I'm interested in many many computers lol. I many working computers and even more going project computers from AMD Phenoms right down to computers with Intel 8088 processor.
My oldest one is a working Panasonic JB-3000 with 8inch disk drives etc, still working (It has the intel 8088).

I have lots of old Apple computers, at least one Amstrad, multiple Amiga's.

My current projects is restoring an Amiga 500 and install disk emulator etc.
I also have complete 386 and 486 computers minus appropriate cases which I want to build out soon.
Far future is rebuilding a severely battery leaked Amiga 2000.

My most recent finished projects was repairing a rather dead Contura 25/4 Laptop (Repairing display drive circuitry and leaked batterys on motherboard, bad hard drive etc)
and building a 4.2Ghz watercooled Pentium 4 (RGB :P)

I've gotten really interested in 386 - 486 computers recently and have gotten back into C/C++ programming to write some fun games for them.

I just kind of do what ever is interesting at the time. :mrgreen: :mrgreen:
