Have a look around! The left navigation panel lists different computing systems exhibited online. As a private person, giving computers a roof is crucial to preserve them, but it doesn't give many possibilities to physically share them with other that are interested in them. This is why I consider it very important to share the computers' existence, their stories and interests about them online to reach out to as many people as possible across this world!

A Philips P3200, which was my very first computer, focused my interest for old computer systems in the early 1990s. The P3200 was already antique, when my father got it offered by a colleague and brought it home. Mechanically and electrically, this system seemed over-engineered. It was very heavy, equipped with an enormous mainboard and did hold an Intel 286 processor. (working at 6 MHz). The power supply could provide 720 Watts and the 5V rail was attached by two screws (!) on the mainboard. A Miniscribe 6032 harddisk was mounted inside the chassis and had quite a raw appearance (5,25" full height).

I started off my interest in collecting small systems with sizes of personal computers. With time my focus spotted on other architectures than Microsoft/Intel computer. Fortunately, ebay made it possible for me to obtain my first larger computing system (a PDP 11/73 in a two-19"-cabinet-configuration) in late 2001, and from there on, I expand my interest also in larger configurations.

Quite some machines, I try to provide a good home for, were made by DEC (Digital Equipment Corp) as their architectures were very inovative and the systems well-designed. Since DEC computers are wide-spread among with a large community devoted to their preservation, access to a lot of information (documentation, schematics, personal experience) is fairly easy. Besides DEC systems, computer systems from SUN Microsystems, Silicon Graphics and IBM found their way to my home.
