I planned to write a whole thing about how computers use to have character, how nobody will ever want to buy a 386 or run Windows 3.0 for nostalgia, how much of a geek I am, et cetera, but it's late, I'm tired, and I want to see if anyone knows where I can get a NeXTcube, NeXTstation, and a Thinking Machines CM-n (where n is a number between 1 and 5, I think)? I'm planning on starting a little collection of all the computers I really wanted to own and can now afford due to obsolescence (although I imagine the Connection Machine will still be quite costly, I've found some NeXT computers between $200-$1000). Hmm, what about old Cray supercomputers? Surely there'd be people willing to *pay me* to get rid of them, being so big an' all.

Oh, and all the stuff I didn't write would have been on topic.
