View Full Version : Newbie from Canada

July 23rd, 2005, 05:27 AM
Hello all. I'm a homeschooling, stay-at-home mom from eastern Canada. I've just started collecting older computers and software this spring. My DH and I were thinking of building a gaming computer but the more I learned the more interesting I found older computers like the ones I grew up on and older.

There's nothing spectacular in my collection...some Comm 64's & drives, a Vic 20, Mac SE and a bunch of components for 386-486's. I do have some nice old games including Starflight and a small pile of OS's.

I'm trying to stay restrained and not spend much money until I find what I'd like to concentrate on. Until then I mostly get my stuff through Freecycle.org, Sally Ann, yard sales and trades (An old beater of a Sundance should yield some old 486's and, I think, an Apple II.)

I look forward to talking to you all.
