Clearing the Attic

Let me just say this first: yes, I'm a sick individual.

I've been clearing out my room at my parent's attic. This is some of the left overs that I donated to recycling.

Com-ports anybody (ISA cards)

This is proper printer paper!

Some of my old boxes of proprietary software...

...and even more (notice the right one - I used to do Fortran'77)

Memory, all sizes and sorts. Perhaps a gigabyte in total :-)

Mice and keyboards...

Crappy picture, but it says "COMAL, advanced course"
"The components of a computer"
"according to von Neumann"

Life has been good :-)

You threw away OS/2 WARP boxes? You *are* a sick individual... ;)

Are that orginal IBM keyboards you are throwing away? Those are _collectible_!


(Not that I want them -- they're probably Swedish layout...)

Hey, I used to program in Comal myself, back on the good old Commodore 64. A teacher in my school got us addicted to the endless possibilities of the structured loops it offered (while-loops are abslutely fascinating if you're only used to CBM Basic and its FOR loops).

When I got my PC later on (1993 I think) I was always looking for a Comal system for it, but I never found one.

Later I found Turbo Pascal, and I never looked back (well, just a little bit, because of the nice graphics features of C64 Comal)

Been there, done that :) Hmm... Actually I haven't done that, I still have tons of hardware laying around...

I've kept my original IBM XT keyboard (with the F-keys to the left), and I've kept all my Atari ST stuff and a few other memorabilia (to my wife's despair).

OS/2 Warp! Awesome. I never understood why that did not become the leading desktop OS. True 32-bit, better threading model...

I have to disagree with your paper comment. Real computer paper is 14" wide and has green bars.
