When you say it accomplishes most of this, are you referring to also
including serial number information? Your idea of including sales
literature and photos, and then making it available on CD is excellent!
I am talking with some friends of mine about doing something similiar.
Judging by the trends in computer collecting over the past couple of
years, I tend to think that collecting classic computers is gaining in
popularity and that printed information is currently, for the most part,
sorely lacking.
