    I've had little luck with the cards I had printed to let people know I collect computers, but when I do get a random call it's proven to be something major. My best acquisition to date is a new-in-box IBM 5150. Today I may have matched that.

    I received a call from a woman who said she had one of my cards and asked if I'd be interested in a PET computer. I told her that I would and asked the model. She told me it is a Super PET and I was very happy to hear that. I'd very much like to add a PET 2001 from 1977 to my collection, but any Commodore PET is good.

    In the end I picked up the machine, the drive and remarkably also the drive cable. The computer works and now it's time to clean it up and test the drive out.

    Came across these at work, what a score!

    Already popped one in my A1200, took my 16gb Image, burned it to the CF, used Thomas' fixhddsize tool to correct the RDB, added a 40gb partition, instant win

    Time to copy across my MOD collection

    I wanted to show my nearly brand new C64. List of parts here with more photos: https://amigalove.com/viewtopic.php?f=13&t=967
    This was not a cheap build, but the keyboard is easily the best C64 I’ve ever typed on. The only things that aren’t new are the keycaps and a handful of original chips. New case (that I snagged for $24 on Ebay a couple of years ago), new Mechboard keyboard, MK2 Reloaded.
    I went with Gatreon yellow microswitches on the Mechboard as they are the closest in feel to the original.

    So I wound up having to go into the clinic/hospital for a couple days running to get treated for a (probable) staph infection in my leg, on Monday I was up in the NE of Calgary where one of the hospitals is (and conveniently right across the street to the mall where Sunrise Records/EB Games and a few other stores I go to are in, and also in the are of some of the Thrift Shops I like to go to) and when I was done, wandered around for a while, Sunrise still had a ton of Funkos, and the clearance had been changed to get 50% more off if you bought 3 (from 25%) so I grabbed a few more.... the Dollar Store also had a few...

    Hi. So, I have not seen an Amiga in the wild for ages... years maybe. So despite having probably around ten A500's I couldn't resist buying this A500 for super cheap untested. Came with a Commodore RGB cable and an A501. Missing trap door cover.

    Anyway took it home and before testing I took it apart, washed the filthy case under a hose pipe, cleaned the motherboard, cleaned the filthy floppy drive and also the keyboard. I took apart the A501 and removed the battery which had only just started leaking slightly... Thank you GP battery for not being a VARTA. Cleaned it up and put it back together.

    Testing time.... Hooked it up, switched on and I see the lovely Kickstart 1.3 screen and the familiar floppy drive click. Insert a few disks but it had problems, so I used a disk cleaner and after that it boots everything fine. Picture, sound, controls, everything works fine as does the ram expansion. The keyboard has issues and I couldn't solve it but I had a spare which I used.

    Anyway enough babble, here are some pics

    You're probably going to be asked to remove the price you paid. Forum rules and all that.
