    Update: Craters and Freighters delivered them without a scratch!

    Everything seems to be in order except the carriage return and line feed mechanism on both of them, so that will be my next step.

    My fiancée and I are both in the hobby, so yes. She got me some memorabilia and books from DEC and IBM, and various 90s PC games. I bought her an early PowerBook and a Toshiba T3100e, although I...

    At least 10 years ago I saved several Sun Ultra 5s from a dumpster. I had planned to make a Beowulf cluster out of them for a school project, but after a while neither the school nor my parents would...

    I ended up getting Craters and Freighters to pick them up and have them foamed and packed into custom crates - I've heard good things about them from the folks on Greenkeys so hopefully should be...

    Sounds like a good plan, hopefully I'll be able to entomb the Teletype in its original box before having it double-boxed and wrapped to a skid.
  10. Shipping an ASR-33 Teletype across the pond...

    Hi All,

    After ~15 years of dreaming, I'm branching out from the world of vintage computers and into the world of Teletypes.

    I've recently acquired a couple of 33 ASRs in their original boxes,...

    Eesh. Still, that's better than I would've thought it would turn out. No damage to the front panel or cards?

    Good plan! It apparently went from Houston to somewhere in Florida, rather than its intended destination of LA :crazy:
    I dread to think what the extra 3,000 miles could do to it... :-?

    If anyone...

    Stories like these are why I now always ask sellers for photos of their packaging job before they send anything. I recently had someone who thought a good way to strap a Teletype to a pallet was to...

    Indeed! I can't wait to give this a try once I've got those VC8E boards you sent finished (I missed a few components when ordering, but it's 99% done!)

    Eheh, very nice!
    Maybe if we hook up a modem or Telnet gateway to our serial ports, we could play 'online'? :D

    Nice work Roland! It's always good to see new OMNIBUS boards in the works; hopefully this should make the hobby more accessible too now that the original boards are getting expensive.
