Basically I take money out of my budgest and buy something when it strikes
me. Lately, Ive actually turned down some of the more popular computer
models because I either have one or more, or space is at a premium. I also
pay monthly for small off-site storage to hold some machines as I'm
reaching over 150 computers+accessories now. Is it feasible to start a
non-profit org to help pay for some of the costs one incurs while enjoying
this hobby or how would one solicit donations? I am reluctant to become too
commercial or plaster my domain with ads.

        I blew a good chunk of my pension a couple of years ago on the collection,
but haven't spent any money since although if anything real interesting
comes along I will probably weaken.
         Our science museum project is at a low ebb since the fellow promoting it
unfortunately died. Looks as if the computers will be in my basement and
garage for a while.
