This sounds like the Tom Vu method for acquiring classic gear:

"You so stupid! Look at you with your puny little worthless computer
collection, while I sit here atop this pile of Altairs. Look, literally
it's a pile of Altairs! I get so many of these that I finally just
started throwing them into this pile, and now I can sit atop it like the
King of the Altairs and gloat while you sit there with your pitiful
Commodore 64 missing the '1' key! Listen to my plan and I'll make you a
classic computer GOD like me!!!"
