Entry 18th February 2019: Post 01: Amiga Heaven - The Ritual

Amiga Heaven - The Ritual
One thing I am very passionate about and that is keeping my computer
collection alive. Primarily for selfish reasons and for my own benefit.
And so most days I will check over as many as I can to make sure they
are functioning correctly. The steady and continued checking seems
to do the trick.

Whilst I cannot literally check the many hundreds of computers here,
I do have a healthy batch set up permanently, generally with monitors
and with power to the systems. Some days I do switch them all on and
watch the power surge on the village electric supply. It is quite a
ritual and one that always fills me with a certain amount of comfort
once I know all the girls are working.

Each computer that I have ready and waiting to operate is there for
a reason and so I will let you have a peak of a ritual I undertake
to power up my computer army. There are numerous other machines that
I do check, but these are on a more monthly basis. I do tend to
record when I have the other machines working.

Anyhoo... here is my trek around the computer rabbit hole as I check
over my computers.

Please note that this was a rush around without the tripod so the
images are not the best. But I guess you get the idea
