Made the mistake of not defining that path early on so mostly personal/home
computing. But anything I find interesting or historically interesting
often finds a way home. I think my largest sets are Commodore and
Tandy/radio shack.

I see a store called freegeek and "Chicago computer club" which seems to be
a store but geared towards businesses? I'm wondering if either of those
would be worth a visit.
