39 minutes you say? Hmmm... That was fast. Though I would love to have those sounds, I do not feel
that I have the space for multiple Roland devices. And finally, I am more into what I personally
was using back from the mid-80's to somewere around 2001/02 when I retired all my old hardware.
I began collecting old parts again in 2013, and I must admit, that it is really hard these days.


Yes. Space is a huge issue, which is why I am trying to reorganize in a big way right now.

GF let me have an entire room (about 20 square meter) in our 3 room 67 square meter apartment, but it is very cluttered right now and I am sorting and organizing stuff, trying to increase efficiency. I plan on having about 9 meters of desk space with shelves above along the walls. It also has grounded power outlets that are separated from the rest of the apartment, as well as a few shared ones (no ground).

The room is going to be dedicated almost entirely to three main topics, mostly based on what I have right now. There is going to be a lot of overlap between the three topics.

Retro computing and gaming
5-10 retro PC's (only 4 are ready right now)
All my MIDI stuff (about 10 modules)
Amiga 1200
Commodore 64 (still missing this, trying to find a decent one, used to have one as a kid)
Atari ST (also currently a missing piece)
Consoles, XBox, PS2, N64, Gamecube: I have never been a console guy, but I want to play with these. They are mostly for the GF. I also want to play with NES, Sega stuff, etc. Maybe even Jamma arcade stuff.
A few Mac Mini G4's
Silicon Graphics O2
I also have 8 or 9 Sun SPARC machines, mostly Ultra 10's
15-20 laptops from 1992 to "modern"

Electronics
Components
Hot air rework station, and other tools
Power supplies
Oscilloscopes, etc.
SDR (Software Defined Radio) stuff, antennas.

Modern Computing Lab
5 "modern" Xeon workstations
3-4 servers (build servers, web, mail, Storage/SAN)
A stack of embedded systems: 2 x Soekris NET4501 and 7 x Soekris NET4801. Used for DNS, DHCP, NTP (Rubidium frequency standard with GPS), etc.
A rack with network and storage (Fibre Channel) switches, etc.

I also have two small rooms in the basement of the building. One of them is done, with shelves on three walls for lidded plastic containers/boxes. The other one need to be cleaned out, and have shelves put in.

True... Space is one major key factor. Hmmm... You have an a1200? I only have an a600, yet I fear a 1200 will not be used as much, because I tend to play a500 games only.

This on not old hardware, yet modern hardware to play old games on. Super cheap...
My son loves space invaders and pacman best of all vintage games, so this is indeed a present that he will enjoy.
As this is a really cheap device, it will be both of my cats present for him.
He loves those animals, so it is about time they "give back" for all the respect and love he has shown them.

It is one of these in this video here below...

Hah those XPS boxes were really cool! Too bad they're BTX and require a ton of work to convert to ATX.

I just bought an Orla Micro Partner GM sound module for a very low price.

Anyone know anything about them? I found a thread here from 8 years ago and no one knew anything about them then.

Looks like a nice compact unit.

Finally managed to score a Dell 2001fp off a local site, 1600x1200 pixels of glory. Of course the first thing I threw at it was my favourite monitor torture test.
2001fp1.jpg

It's really nice for a 2003 LCD, great viewing angle & nice vibrant color all across the panel with no variations. It'll go into a spot where I need to switch between DVI, VGA & S-video a lot so it's perfect. Now I just need a second one so I can run the Mac Mini at 3200x1200. :P

2001fp2.jpg
^^ here it is coping with a notorious LCD logic bomb like a super-pro. I'd estimate 90% of modern displays will throw a hissy fit at this. I'm gonna have to hit it with the rest of the testing suite & see how it does.

^^ Gotta ask, if you put a 2001fp & 2007fp next to each other in dual-head configuration, do they look good? Like, do the sizes of the bezel & screen dimensions match up? I definitely want to get a second one.

You are right, that is why I will be looking for the next one to come in so I can have spare parts. I just couldnt let this go to scrap since it is a working machine. I also didn't have a 60lb PC with LED lights and everyone should own something this gaudy.

I use custom monitor arm, to free some space on desk, so, not shure about height, but yes, both looks good while standing side to side, when i use them with modern pc.

Upd: 2007fp on left, 2001fp on right:
