    Posted this on my FB page, too. Major archaeological finds as part of a big cleanup in what serves as the gaming room in the house (as well as the oldest's bedroom). I'll probably drop these off at the next electronics recycling event in my neighborhood.

    That's not bad. Now if he'd had shown a picture of old cases, motherboards, and PSUs, THEN I'd have been impressed! :D

    ShinyTop I know what is right or wrong!

    I have 5 CRT monitors that I cannot take a picture of they are hidden so well.

    I also hoard power supplies. The devices may be long gone but I have the power supplies just in case. Recently threw away a 3.5 floppy drive still in packaging in case I ever needed it.

    I happened across two of my wife's Commodore 64's in our garage last week. She used those before we got married. I have an Apple //c in the hall closet, and these beauties:

    And yes, all of them still work...

    Still have a functioning Palm T|X, and my wife's Sony Clie but we cleaned out our electronics hoard a back when we moved into the RV.

    Brazbit Nah... It can't be.

    First TV: My parent's 25" RCA console TV. In spare bedroom.

    First game consoles: Magnavox Odyssey 2, Atari 2600. In the garage.

    First computer; Coleco Adam. Currently hooked up to my bedroom tv. All drives still work as does the Daisy Wheel printer.

    Jen's first PC: Tandy 1000 RL. On the dresser and still functional.

    First Laptop: Digital Equipment Corporation HiNote Ultra 485/50. Kept beside my bed for nostalgia computing.

    First PDA; Handspring Visor. Have its replacement around here somewhere (original broke in a fall)

    I don't let go of many electronics.

    Jesus. How big is your place?

    Brazbit Nah... It can't be.

    About 900sqft I think. Pretty big separate garage though. I think it doubles the usable space easily.

    Needless to say, the vehicles don't live in Braz's garage. :yellowlaugh:

    Never understood wasting perfectly good storage space on vehicles. ;) The motorcycle is in there but that doesn't take a lot of room.
