Congratz on your golden El Dorado
Looks like you forgot to attach your photos OP
I'm sorry, but this is text-only.
I'm too retro for the constantly-phone-carrying taking-snapshots-of-everything-you-see habit, and in any case it would not be polite to do that upon first meeting somebody and being shown their stuff, as I'm sure you can appreciate.
If you're all on your best behaviour perhaps in future I could invite him to join us here on the forums. That would be pretty cool.
I love it!!! , But will the Skipper actually let you buy anything aside from a KVM? That box of n64's for example? Or the various loot boxes of old pc gear??
Love the write up.. you could be making a living writing for mills and boon.
A+ would read again.
Mills and Boon for retroheads - why not
50 shades of CPUs?
well ... what are the odds ?
Confessions of a Retro Hoarder?
Forbidden Connections of a 486?
Awesome stuff shredder. There may not have been photos, but in my mind's eye I saw it all. A dream scenario! Hope we get more stories from future visits.
<edit: not retro/>
a kvm, certainly unexpected result.
If you say so, man. That was already on my shopping list before I went there, so it was probably the least unexpected part of the experience, for me.
I think he may have been having a bit of a go about the rather underwhelming outcome of a very enthusiastic thread....
But I'm sure you'll pick up something cooler next time
"Huge Pile Of New Possessions or Shut Up".
Shallow expectations will be met appropriately I guess - one can always Google "List Of Items", if that's what gets one off.
how did you guess?
By the telling value some put on the journey vs the destination as they say...
so this is a journey to your horde?
Sounds like the American Pickers of Retro... noice.
I don't already have my own personal horde? Hmm, I guess it can always be more.
But I getcha, you'd rather I didn't post things like this. If I'm 'reading between the lines' correctly. Opinion noted, my good man / woman.
