Lab donations
« on: February 03, 2013, 01:15:13 PM »
I'm moving, closer to the lab, :)  and I need to lighten the load. I have an original commoder 64 with 1541 floppy drive. In addition to this I have an original xbox with a few odd games. Both in working order when originally boxed.

I dont use them so I figure I would ask if we could use these at familab. If not I'll leave it open to any member who wants to go retro.

I'd be willing to redo the front room more nicely and set up some cool retro stuff next to the trs-80. Would be great for street cred on open house nights.

I'll bring it in this week. Maybe some of these old floppies are still good.  I even found the original manual and some programming books.

I'd still like to see the laptop bars built. Having a built in retro station would be awesome...

If we have extra commodore 64s, I'll gladly snag it, if not, it will be useful for the lab. In any event, we have a lot of retro equipment now. We should set up a table with the TRS-80, a commodore 64, and Dan's logic analyzer.
