I think the older computers are much more fun than the new ones, well in six months the new computers will be out dated any way, then I'll add them to my collection.

Me and my Intel Paragon systems and IBM 3420 tape drive, I will rent it out, email me.


Imsai 8 bit computer WOW. Wanted one of these since I was 15. Cost New over $500.00. Donate by Sherwin and Shirley (aka "Shyrl") Ham radio name K2OZK. A little history on the system:
IMSAI 8080 which my husband built in 1974 or 1975. He and I both learned Assembly language on that computer, and after we got basic, I would enter programs (mainly games) from the dozens of books coming out on Basic - my job was to improve on them, eg. using a person's name and tallying each game's score. From there I branched out to write a program to handle his meagre financial holdings, but I included charts -years before these things became ho-hum. After that, I branched into the Commodore 64 and 128 - both great machines; I was in heaven when we could finally afford 20k of memory! :-D .

INTEL Paragon XP/S Super Computer, 96 of a i860 processors, 64 bits Unix!, WOW, Cost New $1.2 million dollars in 1994 for the 2 cabinets, have 5 of them, more information coming soon.

INTEL iPSC Super Computer, 32 of a 286 processors and 287 coprocessors and it works !, runs XENIX WOW, connects to a INTEL work station, Cost New $750.000 dollars in 1985, more information coming soon.

INTEL 286 cpu and 287 coprocessor Node for the iPSC
MASPAR 2101 super computer, it has 1024 PE cmos processors, Max Mops =1600, 64 meg Data memory, Cost New over $700.000 dollars in 1992. .
CRAY 3 super computer processor board 1 ns processing time, cost over 300 million dollors to develop in 1995. The Cray-3 was intended to be Cray Research's successor to the Cray-2 supercomputer. The system was to be the first major application of gallium arsenide (GaAs) semiconductors in computing. The project was not considered a success, and only one Cray-3 was delivered. .

The Mark 8.
1974 Radio Electronics, The First 8 bit computer kit. It had a Intel 8008 processor and 1101 Dram memory for a total of 1k of main memory.

MicroData 1600 Mini computer The MicroData 1600 just came in on the truck on 3-8-2000, boy what a mess, it was in a persons barn for over 14 years. It was full of bird droppings, mouse fur balls and squirrel nuts, I spend an hour hosing it off with water and antibacterial soap, it smells and looks much better know. The photo shows the removable hard disk units laying on there sides after a good washing and the main 1600 unit and tape drive in the background. I will update this page in the coming weeks to show more photos of the unit being restored to function. This is a photo of the front face plate of the Mirodata minicomputer.06-26-00
