Alright, my mess is, well, a mess.
First up is my home office. Nice dual Xeon workstation connected to a 22" LCD as my primary computer (my Linux netbook can be seen as the 'black slab' on top, with my dual external hard drives at the left.) Sitting on top of the workstation is my "nettop", an Atom-based tiny desktop. When I'm not doing "serious" work (most weekends,) I turn off the loud workstation and use the silent nettop. On top is my ViewSonic PS790, whose BNC ports come into excellent utility connecting to some of my older systems, including the SGI Indy and HP 9000-735 that are under the desk at the moment. (Along with an SGI Challenge-S, which is basically an Indy with server bits instead of video bits.) There's also my old gaming rig in the 'CPU cabinet' part of the desk, but I really need to just sell that, as my workstation does everything I need.
Second is my "old and new" shelf. This is a shelf on the wall in the basement right at the foot of the stairs. It houses my internet/phone setup (Cable modem, router, VOIP box,) all connected to a really big UPS, so even if I lose power, I have phone (and wireless internet,) for about eight hours. On the shelf is my "big iron" server, a quad Itanium, presently running Debian Linux and a trial copy of Windows Server 2008 R2. Sitting on top is my excellent-condition Macintosh (original 128K model, its serial number states it was manufactured in 1983!,) Apple IIc, and NeXTstation. I use the Apple IIc as a serial terminal for the Itanium. 😁 The stairs go up behind the wall these are against. UNDER the stairs is my old Macintosh collection. Literally packed in, Tetris-like, filling the entire volume under the stairs. I *REALLY* need to go through those and get rid of most of them. (Need to move from "hoarder" to "collector".) On the shelf above you can see a bunch of boxed video games - Atari published arcade games for the Apple II. I love playing Ms. Pac-Man or Dig-Dug on the IIc.
Yes, the Macintosh has its original keyboard, with numeric keypad, and original external floppy drive. The Apple IIc has its matching monitor and external floppy drive. The NeXT has matching monitor, black SCSI CD-ROM drive, and even the laser printer. If you want a NeXT, there's a near-identical setup on eBay right now, complete with manuals and boxes (I don't have manuals or boxes; not my auction, it's by someone who is on three other vintage computing forums I also visit.)
Next up is my main "workshop" area. Right now the surface is covered with Macs, but the second picture shows the stack of IBMs (with a couple more SGI boxes on top,) awaiting "processing". The large white cabinet is completely full of computer hardware. Mostly "spare parts", but I know there is a Macintosh SE, another Apple IIc, plus a 'stack' of notebooks in there.
Visible on the bench are: Apple Workgroup Server 7350, Macintosh Centris 650 (with A/UX on it right now,) Macintosh SE, Apple IIgs, PowerBook 520c (with Apple-official PowerPC upgrade,) and PowerBook 540c; along with an Apple PowerCD external drive.
Visible in the "stack" are: (From bottom:) IBM PC300 (Pentium III,) IBM PC350 (Pentium), IBM PS/2 Model 77 (486 DX4-100 with CD-ROM drive and 5.25" floppy - sadly *NOT* an Ultimedia, so no sound card,) IBM PS/2 Model 90 (486 DX2-66,) IBM PS/ValuePoint (486 DX-33,) generic "net PC" from the '90s (AMD 5x86-133,) and another pair of SGI Indy and SGI Challenge-S. To the left, in its original carry-case, is a Macintosh Portable, and behind that a Power Macintosh G3 Blue and White (the matching Apple LCD is presently connected to my Itanium because I needed to do some work on it over the weekend.) On top of the monitor at the far left are another PowerBook 520c and a PowerBook 100.
Plenty of floppies and CDs are visible stacked all over the place. I'm in the middle of going through them.
I am in the process of going through my "collection" to bring it down to an actual collection and not just hoarding of old crap. Most of the IBMs in that stack are going to go - they all have *SOMETHING* not quite right with them, and I have another PS/2 Model 77 that works great (although I'll probably transplant the CD-ROM and 5.25" drives over.) Likewise, I currently have about 100 old Macintoshes, and I want, in the end, to pare that down to 10 or fewer.
