Shared this awhile ago on reddit. It's still defying gravity just fine.

No offense to the craftsman but I wouldn't be able to relax sitting under that lot 😬

Life? Don't talk to me about life.

not only is it tiny but it's also overcrowded and messy as fuck. FML

Messy AF is the natural state of my office. My pic is not an accurate reflection of normal circumstances.

I sympathize with the space issue. It is unfortunate that retro computing hobbies consume so much space. Emulators just aren't the same.

I wonder, if many-universes theory is correct, in what percentage of alternate universes I've been crushed under a pile of retro computers. Good way to go I suppose.

Hi just introducing myself.
Been a pc user ever since our first pc a Philips P2230 12.5mhz 1 Mb ram, 20Mb hdd, 1.44Mb 3.5"diskdrive, and cga monochrome graphics. Later expanded with a 256Kb 8bit isa vga card and a Adlib compatible soundcard, after using a year or so a selfbuild covox cable.

My retro systems i got today are:
A P100, 32Mb, 1.2 Gb Hdd, ArkLogic 2000PV 2Mb vga card, A gravis ultrasound max compatible soundcard, and a Logitech soundman wave for soundblaster compatibility and a internal zip 100 and 8x cd-rom.
My second system is
a P233MMX, 64Mb ram, 3.2Gb Hdd, Daimond Stealth 3d 2000 4Mb, 3dfx voodoo2 12 Mb, a sb ct4170 and a 12x cd-rom drive.

For gaming purposes i have a whole lot of controllers, Gravis gamepad, Gravis joystick, quickshot masterpilot, thrustmaster tupgun platium, thrustmaster attack throttle, microsoft sidewinder forcefeedback and a digital edge f1 sim compact.

Display is a sony lcd 4:3 display.

I also have a commodore pc10-III, it's booting up, but i don't get picture on my monitor, also i don't have a keyboard. The battery has leaked so the mainboard and a few ramchips have some corrosion.

Wanna sell the P2230 ?
