What old hardware do you have?

category: general [glöplog]
Aside from the standard, Amiga, GUS, 386 hardware, my pride and joy (to me anyways) is the actual phone wall-jack that I ran my BBS off of in 1990 on a 286 12MHz beast at 2400bps.

I moved from the house I grew up in as a kid, and actually had the nerve to go back years later, and ask the present owners if I could take the old wall-jack and put in a new one. haha

They thought I was a bit weird, but liked hearing all the stories about the old house. :)

My oldest computer also happens to be my newest computer. What can I say -- I live a minimalist lifestyle and don't like to keep "extra stuff" kicking around.
Hmm... oldest hardware would have to be the floppy disks? Everything is pretty new, except my Oldskool TI-200 graphing calculator, and that's not very computerish (though it DOES run both the Orion TI-89 demos)

I'm a newskooler, so I'm happy to stick just with a nice combination of 2 computers for mid-90's demo watching: 486/66 with GUS and a A1200/060.

Aside from the standard Truck Amiga list and the NTSC c64s and all the pc hardware that died cuz it wasn't powered up (crap f*n sh*t) -

A few working first edition Mac Classics (WORKING.)
Timex Sinclair 1000 and 16k ram addition. It's like a zx81 but it's NTSC and labeled Timex Sinclair. (this is also not a Timex Portugese 48k, it's older and has no color.) That's my first computer.

Yes eventually I'll code a demo on it, but I never was horribly good at z80 and right now I'm dealing with having forgotten too much Amiga stuff (:

Somewhere in a cupboard I still own these oldies:

There is also this old Gravis UltraSound Max that cost an insane amount of money back then.

and speaking of oldies, I also have Rez on MSN right now ;)

wow Enterprise 128 :)

keops: LOL

Optimus: Back in the time, I always wanted this monitor. I was impressed by it's quality back in the time. Wanted because I used Cubase with a little tool that can scroll 2 screens in medium res :]
You could play at "Bolo" with a vertical scroller :P
Later I founded a little ST emulator on Amiga, MIDI wasn't implemented, but I could run Cubase in interlaced mode, that was amazing, almost working hehe (too slow with lot of tracks/evenements, but ok woth little projects. Should be in 89-91).
Today I've been offered an Acorn Archimedes. Got to find some space for that one too...

Atari Falcon030 with FPU

and an "old" PII 350 used as a server

And speaking of oldies, I have Rez in my office ( but he's a little late today ) ;)

Rez is not an oldie. It's just the best freakin' game ever :)

anyway: VIC-20, C64 and a A2600 (a sixshooter with ye olde fake food finish). The C64 is dead, I think.

I would consider only SVI-738 (msx x'press) and NES old, but someone propably thinks that DC and PS1 are old too.

And then I have some half-working 486's and pentium's.
