Hello all, a new member here.
I?m in the UK where I?ve lived for 17 years now. Before that I lived in
I got my computer bug as a kid playing with VIC20, TRS-80, APPLE ][ and a
mainframe. Presently I work as a .Net programmer mainly doing ASP.Net
of the old hardware I had stopped working for one reason or another and was
binned ? my Dad didn?t like clutter. So I?m surrounded by laptops and a
couple of older machines which used to run the network in the office.
I?ve started looking around for some vintage machines that I used at Uni.
Sparcstation, NeXT Cube are the ones I used the most.
One machine that I would very much like to have is a SUN Sparcstation as
I?ve some old projects that I did at university which I?d like to carry on
working on (also to show my kids what I did at Uni) If anyone on here is in
the UK and has a Sparcstation 1,2,4,5 I?d be interested. If it has the ??
drive than I?d be interested in that too. SunOS would be OK as that?s what I
used. I am tempted in a NeXT but my project used X11 and a library called
InterViews which I think will only work on X. Maybe someone can clarify
Anyway, enjoying reading the posts and happy to have found you.
