    Ha, naw, while you were away, I picked up a C64, Atari 600XL, a TI-99, haha, and a CoCo2, which I've yet to upgrade!
    Bought a big local lot, had several 80's PC pieces, so I just went crazy on it, mostly "good deals" at Atari Age!
    :D

    Please tell me how much you paid for what you mentioned? After you got a PS4 for pocket change, I'm interested.
    I'm just getting into the mood to get some old computers. It's nice. :)

    Totally only ballpark guessing here, tbh, but I'll give it a shot-

    The C64 wound up being something of a bundle-the unit itself wasn't much, and OnlyinAJeep cracked it open, pored over it, heatsinks, it's SWEET, but with the modern PSU, the Fastload cart, and the SD2IEC it prolly did amount to even 400$... BUT-C64 has kinda always been "top of my list", important to me!

    CoCo2 came with my big bundle, it was so much stuff it's hard to put individual "cost", but say 50$, mebbe-again, OnlyinAJeep has helped me out, sent me the stuff I need to upgrade it some, it works fine I just haven't upgraded it. First PC I ever personally owned, and I detested it, wanted a C64, haha!

    Atari600XL was a couple hundred, but it came with the UNO cart, so that's another hundred value there really-it's output modded, and the RAM is maxed out.

    The TI99 was about 125 from Scott Stilphen, first PC I ever actually got to use, as a kid in the "smart classes", ha, hunting wumpuses. Really, really neat to own.


    So altogether, no real small chunk of change, but it did take a while, and, my biggest thing-look at all that friggin history! My room is honest to gosh about as close to an actual "museum" as a low budget personal collector can possibly come up with, haha!!!
    :)

    Rest assured, most of these will be "catch up" ties, haha, 9 lap Albi is killing me, that one is GREAT!!!

    And tbh-no, today has actually kinda sucked the worst, I'm sick and tired of being sick and tired, haha, it's actually kinda pissing me off, like a relative sleeping on my couch that just won't damned leave!
    :D
    It'll pass soon!!!
