Ebay and swap meets.
Hopefully this isn't too off-topic, but a thought just occured to me
about computers that some may, or may not, want to collect in the
future, which aren't classics yet. It seems that many of the newer
computers have been designed with uncollectability, as well as a high
degree of user-annoyance, in mind. Somehow, either some marketing
idiots, or clueless enginers, got the idea to design computer
equipment that's unstackable due to its rounded-off shape... the iMacs
and some Compaq PeeCees (e.g. Presario 4814) come to mind. Is anyone
going to be seriously interested in collecting computer equipment that
can't be stacked, and does anyone actually find equipment that can't
be stacked, or have anything stacked on top of it (not even a monitor
or books, etc), to be other than an annoyance?

I've been contacted by a gentleman who is interested in selling an
HX-20. He can be reached via email at katerad(a)earthlink.net. I think
he wants around $50 for the machine, but don't quote me on that.
I am just passing along this information and have nothing to do with the
offer, the item or the seller. (insert other typical disclaimers here)
Please contact Tom directly (katerad(a)earthlink.net)

I've just got an HP 1615 Logic Analyser on eBay for a few pounds, but
it doesn't come with probes. Now, HP probes occasionally show up on
eBay, too -- but which ones do I need for the 1615? Does anybody happen
to know, please?

Those MAY be the same pens that were used in the Radio Shack GCP-115
preinter/plotter and a printer/plotter that Atari sold. The last ones that
I bought came from a surplus company (Electronics Goldmine or somebody like
that) but that was about 10 years ago.

As long as they don't cover any of the holes or are
mounted poorly such that they peel off, there is no
issue with where you mount it. Of course, you need
to be careful when mounting such that you don't
damage the media ( such as using a ball point pen ).
I notice on 8 in disks that the label stickers are affixed on the front, along the top, and only to about 1/4 of the way down.
I was thinking of affixing bar code labels to the disks. I would like to put them on the back, where they would permanently identify the item, yet do not interfere with possible future display of the disk fronts.
But I don't know if this would, somehow, get in the way of the proper functioning of the disks.
I thank you in advance for any comments or advice.

Price, nothing. I had already bought some things and had
just pulled this out of a box and asked 'how much' only
to be told take it. So I did.
I like those prices.
