And I'd have told them to keep walking!  But really, it's a video
games/kitchy electronics show; they're not hardcore computer
collectors.  I don't even know what a show about "us" would look like.
Probably nothing that would fit in 23 minutes - it can take me that
long just to tell the story of how I acquired a single item.

I've always wanted to create an text adventure about computer
collecting, though.  Seek out rare finds!  Evade goldbugs!  Avoid
earning the "hoarder" label while still dying with the most toys!

That's probably a safe assumption - it's TV, after all.  But I can
say, in my case, all of the items they bought from me were part of my
collection.  We may have moved them between rooms of the house to fit
their narrative, but they were here well before I got involved with
the show.
