Hey! Cleaned up my workspace a bit and moved some of my computers out of the room. It was getting kind of crazy and I thought I'd slim it down to just the ones I really use the most so this is my setup now. 😁

Lol Thanks I really like it. 😁

@tincup what do you mean? 🤣 Because of the lighting and the angle? 🤣

Oh I see what you mean now! Yeah I would say StoneShip for sure. 🤣

The reason my room is like this though honestly is because I'm a huge antiques collector (Or I was, not so much these days) and at one point I had this room themed like it was the 1930's but since then I got into collecting computers and electronics devices have made there way in here. So right now it's kind of an odd mismash of antique books, furniture, devices (Victor and edison phonographs and players, a 1920's GE electric fan and other things) and then all my more modern things like my computers, computer components, drafting lamps with LED bulbs, my 1970's Zenith tube radio, GE flip clock and other misc things. 😜

Nice mix of the 20th and 21st centuries. You must have a very high power bill having all these machines run at the same time. I would love some nice rugs. My wife hates them unfortunately. 🙁 Just like my corduroy pants and boat shoes: she threw them out. 🙁

Aww man that sucks, in my house rugs are a MUST because I currently live in a 100 year old house that was a summer vacation home so it's extremely poorly insulated (It wasn't at all when my family moved in) but it's slowly getting up to snuff. 😜

She threw out your boat shoes?!?!? Man that is grounds for murder. 🤣

Interesting. My house was built in 1955. Typical ranch style home. The nice thing about those is that they typically have a full basement. We finished the basement so I have 1200+ square feet of additional space.

Holy absolute walls of retro rigs, DataPro. That is awesome. Wonder how the crowd over at r/retrobattlestations would react to something like that. 😜

More details about this room :

The Blackberry is used as .WAV player to replace tape player.
p1050013.jpg
the old B/W TV set is great for tuning old Pong.
the eMac is a G4/1.42 Ghz, the most powerful eMac.

I had to install 3 electrical lines for 36 walls sockets.

I have also an other room with gaming consoles and some other computers (Amiga 2000, TRS-80 Model III...)

Just a few... :

Wow...amazing....great job organizing it all. I know it's a never ending quest to get it "just right" but you're pretty close! 🤣. I love the Panasonic computer you have there and all the ZX spectrum stuff and all the other computers I have never seen before! They all look to be in great shape too. Excellent. Congrats.

You're right! It's also difficult to keep it "each thing - each place".

Now my quest is over. I need now to find time to enjoy my room and all my games.
At this time I am working on my first PC. I keep it alive and try to fill it with 90's games. This year I just bought a Japanese Famicom, an Amiga 2000, a Roland MT-32 and a Roland M-GS64. The two last are not computer but expanders.
