    Wanted: Old Computers

    If it's old (pre-1990), before you scrap it, get in touch with me. If you're not sure what you've got, I'm also happy to answer questions (or at least try to).

    Edit: Old digital calculators/adding machines too!

    Just wanted to say had a nice meeting with FLimits today. She ventured out to my island for two computers and left with three boxes of vintage equipment. One box was full of keyboards that we are hopefully both going to make out well on. Good people, very knowledgable and a pleasure to talk to.

    I can say she is a top buyer here for those with vintage equipment to sell. Don't scrap it till you check with FLimits!!!!!!

    Hey BC, thanks! It was a real pleasure to meet you and hang out. Thanks for letting me plunder your warehouse. I felt like a kid in a candy store -- although I'm still a little traumatized by the efficiency with which you gutted that little Pentium 4 computer.

    And although it's always fun to find some interesting old computer stuff, it's even better to meet really good, smart people. That was the real highlight of my day.

    I have an old Atari 800 that I'm not sure what to do with. I also have a lot of games for it.

    Hi Evan. Well, you should either enjoy playing with it or sell it and enjoy the cash! You could also hold onto it as a sort of investment, but in general I think there are other investments that would offer a greater (or more predictable) rate of return.

    Are you currently an eBay seller? If so, you could list your Atari and games there. That's where you're likely to get the highest price for these items. If you decide that you want to sell it but aren't interested in putting it on eBay, let me know and I'll try to help you out. You can email me directly at the address I gave at the top of this thread.

    Kim,

    I have one of those wierd old ATT phone things to hook you up to the internet.

    Has two ear pieces to communicate through a standard phone, and a keyboard with one of the blue letter screens on it.

    No idea what they are called, just crossed my mind so I thought I'd pass it along.

    If I remember and end up in the garage later, I'll snap a picture.

    Hi Jake.

    Based on your description, it sounds as if that might actually be a TTY (teletypewriter) for communicating with the hearing- or speech-impaired. Does it look pretty much like this?



    If so, then it's a TTY, or "text telephone." This device essentially works like a modem: It transmits and receives tones corresponding to the various keyboard characters, which it then displays as text on that little LED screen above the keyboard. Both callers have to use a TTY in order to communicate.
