OMG Don't Do It

Can't believe that I come back here after all this time, and check this blog, and the One Thing on it -- an ominous foreshadowing of a day I've come to regret, the day I offloaded most of my 8 bit collection. "To make space". Omg, don't let this happen to you. Find an attic, a basement, a relative's closet, idk, find someplace, but don't abandon your 8 bit stuff just to "make space".  Bcz like as not, other stuff will just move into that space in short order, and you'll want to go boot up something like it's 1979 again, and then you'll realize your Mistake. (more after break)


What to keep?

I have several II's and not enough room to keep them all. A pair of IIe enhanced, a plain IIe, and even a II+, all of which work. Also some spare plain IIe mb's, unknown functionality. Ditch the plus, b/c I can sustain my IIe population? Or the IIe's, b/c they rely on custom soldered in chips?

nothing to see here. keep moving. move it along. nothing to see.
