How many computers?

Every so often, someone asks how many computers I have, and I always find
it hard to give a straight answer. It depends whether you count half a
dozen 68000 boards as 1 + spares, or 6 -- I only have two keyboards and one
PSU rigged up for them -- or none, since I haven't got the orignal case or
PSU. Or the PDP-11s; I have several spare CPUs and other boards, but only
a few cabinets.

This is roughly what's running/runnable:

Acorn Archimedes A440, serial no 614 + Arm3 processor a a lot of extras
Acorn Archimedes A310, serial no 2.
BBC Microcomputer Model B (about 2.5 of these)
BBC Microcomputer Model B-plus
Torch Z80 Card x 2
Acorn Z80
Acorn 6502
Acorn Electron
Acorn Atom
Apple ][+
Apple //e
Apple Mac Plus x 2
Sharp MZ80K
Atari MegaST

Commodore PET 2001-8K
Commodore 128 (US version)
Commodore VIC-20
Amiga 500 (well, half of one, anyway)
homebrew Z8 SBC
Sinclair ZX81
Sinclair Spectrum
Sinclair Spectrum 48K
Sinclair QL (plus a dead one)
Sparcstation 1+
Silicon Graphics Indy R4600SC
386sx-20 portable

11/23 x 2
11/03 x 2
11/24 (only the board set, though)
11/73 x 2
microVax II
uMicro 2000 (a 68000 system and a lot of spare boards)
Sage II (another 68000)

and, of course, a whole lot of peripherals.
