Retro Computers

I worked in the computer industry from 1986 till 1999 and have seen some really interesting advances in technology since then. Unfortunately a lot of it is “throw away” and suddenly these old number crunchers have become sought after collectables and museum pieces. I am sorry I never saved some of that scrap, but given how technology advances I would have run out of space by the time we hit the first Pentium. This is a small tribute to those many iterations of hardware (and software) that I have encountered over the years.  Some pages open inside of my other blog or in a new page.
