    Well certainly some things have gone up. When I started collecting in the mid 90s, you couldn't give a Tandy 1000 away. Now those are going for up to a few hundred, which is bizarre to me as a...

    I've pulled out the Mindsets again. A while back I bought a second Mindset keyboard (really nice one.. no yellowing), on the theory that it seemed odd that both machines were suffering from the...

    I think there are some things you can collect to appreciate without necessarily using every day. My Mark-8 boards are just such a thing. I have them mounted in my office. Can't use em. An Altair...

    I've removed and replaced plungers. It's not that bad once you learn where to grip them. I use small, needlenose visegrips and pull straight up. I did this to borrow a few good plungers from a...

    I was kind of thinking it *might* be a KIM-1 in there, but I compared the edge connector where those resistors and such are visible, and although there are resistors in that general area on my KIM-1,...

    Hope it didn't go to a keyboard ghoul.

    Yeah I saw that Turnkey and was tempted. I have a 680 case and unbuilt 680 motherboard.. if I ever ran across an original front panel I'd probably break my taboo on building original stuff and just...

    An Altair 8800 just went for $2200.. less than half the usual going rate, if that's any indication (granted, it had some dings). I watch a lot of items on ebay and stuff is still selling, but it...
