Wow. I've never even seen a picture of a 15 or a 12. I'm envious. Now I
just need to finish school, get a good job, and buy myself a warehouse and
start _really_ collecting.

Heh, about the same thing I'd want to have if I had somewhere to put it.

Nice site. I've been interested for years, sorta-collecting for about 6
years, and starting last summer (after moving out of the dorms), I've
started REALLY getting into collecting. The new place I'm moving into
with some friends is a lot bigger than this place, fortunately.

I end up getting most of my things from Purdue University's Salvage and
Surplus op, but some of my more interesting things (IMHO) haven't been
from there -- my Altos 8000 and 580, DEC Pro-380, Osborne, and Decwriter

I've got my collection up on my web site at
http://purdueriots.com/compcollect/ for anyone interested; it's not
perfectly up-to-date, but I try to keep it relatively correct. Once I get
some time after summer school is over, I might work on revamping the look
a bit.
