FWIW, that was my first thought too, but I decided not to be the first to
post it...

This probably explaines why I have no success with women, but I would
agree. Your wife doesn't have to be interested in classic computers (or
whatever), but she darn well should realise that if the man she claims to
love is insterested in them then they are actually important to some
people. And that you'd want your work to continue after your death.
