Why Collect ?

My answer is ... `why not ?`

When you have been around computers as long as I
you get somewhat tired of the same old stuff
constantly being churned out by the big software
houses and hardware manufaturers. And its not
cheap to keep up with the pack. No sooner have
you got your new version of Metal Gear Solid,
than you find a better version about to hit
the shelves. At 30 - 40 a shot that can become
quite an expensive. Add to that the game manual,
which to be honest is essential, particularly for
games like Final Fantasy, and your talking about
shelling out over 50. So when you reflect on this
and consider the joy of winning stuff off Ebay
for a fiver, then you start to think... `maybe
its time to stop `.

And so, I spend probably much less now on my hobby
and finish up with a constant flow of boxes of
retro goodies to keep me occupied.

Obviously, not practical for everyone, but I got
the space ( just ) and I have no other interests.
So instead of 10 on booze, its a few games
cartridges and maybe a VIC-20 system off the Bay.
Instead of new computer hardware and software
its older computers, software and peripherals
for me now.

Am I mad; yes, probably. But ( big but ), once you
have the gear you never have to again say...

`I used to have one of those.... `

As to what I collect... well pretty much anything
related to Commodore. I love SCSI interfaces, hence
the name scuzz, and would promote the concept of
plug-in, plug-out peripherals, which you can easily
swap out to all manner of machines, in preference
to internal fixed hardware, any day of the week.

What I don`t like ... `Printers` I hate printers.
I see no point of a printer when you have a computer
and a monitor. I got a computer to get rid of paper.
So I`m pretty much paperless.

My favourite computer The Amiga A1200
Simply the greatest computer ever designed
I mean that sincerely. The whole unit is a
design marvel. Nothing has been left to
chance and unlike modern computers, the design
flows through each and every part of the computer
from hardware and even through into the OS

My most treasured item ?Beside my 1993
A1200 I would have to say its my original Microvitec
monitor, I would hate to lose either. Add to that
my configuration for DOpus4 and my own icon
collection and that would pretty well sum up my
most treasured items.

What won`t I collect ? Towers, towered up
Amigas, other than the A3000T ( and A4000T made by
Commodore ) I really cannot get my head around
taking apart a perfectly good Amiga and turning
it into type of PC. Everyone to their own I guess

Whats left to collect ? Tons of stuff...

All I long for is happy computing days, and
that means getting off the fast train and
watching it fly off in the distance, with
a big smile on your face....
