    I like coding on the machines I originally used and didn't have have the money to afford. Boyle's law applies to computer science....

    Your best and worst vintage computer investments?

    I'm a hobbyist.... I don't buy/obtain old tech for investing.... I do it for the fun/enjoyment. Now, if someone offered me a VAX 11/780 free..... well, that would require some house re-arranging... :)
