My son (going for his Masters) sent me a text today asking if I still had my old iOmega Zip drive. Seems there are files he needs to recover and the first tier of IT has no idea of what Zip even means. It's just one more badge of education.

......and obsolescence.

Don't ask how i know.

edit: Need a NOS (original box in plastic wrap) IBM Warp OS2? Considered by many to have been superior to Windows.Sure wish I'd kept the Commodore Pet and Osbourne luggable computer. Years back I donated a 5 1/4" , 5 megabyte hard drive autographed by The Man - the late Al Shugart, to a historical collection. Seagate was a great customer for years.

Intel memorabilia have any value? Back when they were the 4th largest mfg of silicon memory chips, terrified of Japanese capacity. Prior to the first real microprocessor = 8080.

My first was a Commodore VIC that I sent on to someone else quickly, but I am forgetting the Timex Sinclair that still resides in my garage. I have the Compaq suitcase computer in my attic as I speak. I did the upgrade to a real time clock card, as much memory as the MB could take, and a 5mb Hardcard. Later I removed one of the 5 1/4 floppies and installed a 3 1/4 floppy. I thought I was on the bleeding edge. I was wrong.
