Keatah Posted October 8, 2022 Share Posted October 8, 2022 Collecting Goals & Activities for 2023: It's not too early to start this thread. Here in the Northern Hempisphere the weather is becoming conducive to indoor vintage computing and classic gaming activities more and more by the day. Rightsizing: Continuing to very slowly sort through my Apple II material.. Thought I'd be done with it this summer, but so much stuff was intermixed with it. And it's slow going because I only spend 1/2 hour a week or less on it. Should I ever have a block of time I'll go at it full speed. The latest de-bloating activity was gathering all the S-100 crap I had packed into the nooks and crannies of the cellar area. Not sure why I ended up with 3 boxes of it. For whatever reason S-100 made an early impression on me as a kid. Loved looking at the early "micro" and Interface Age magazines. Chock full of pics of "sophisticated" circuit boards. You get the idea. Ultimately wetting my pants when seeing the Apple II motherboard - had MOAR chips than contemporary arcade cabs! The 3 boxes of cards are going curbside this week. Very likely they'll be picked up by the weird guy that comes by. Must like sorting through my trash for some unfathomable reason. Buying: There's only 4 - 6 pieces of hardware I want to acquire. They're modern add-ons for the Apple II. Storage and disk related. I am also looking for a 1600x1200 LCD panel as a spare for my ancient 4:3 monitor. Last one I got was fake stuff from china - half expected that so was prepared. Continuing on with manuals and documentation.. Have most everything I want in that category. So anything I get in that category will have to be interesting. It's really open-ended. I have the wife pre-conditioned to not complain if books and papers show up. Typically if I buy something from ebay, to scan it, I'll just give it to the library afterwards. This to avoid a hoarder's situation. Selling: Generally don't bother selling stuff. Either let the wife handle it or put it out for the "guy". Most all my duplicate stuff will go this route sooner or later. 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
