It seems like everyone loves retro stuff, especially if it's something a person actually remembers using. In that spirit, I'd like to put together a gallery of old IT tools. It doesn't have to be an old computer that you still have lying around, but we're looking for even rarer stuff like that Quattro Pro software box you have inexplicably held on to. Or all the issues of Byte magazine. Or maybe you're using a datasette as a paper weight (that is, if you're still using paper!)
So dig through all your old stuff before the folks fromHoarders show up, take a picture or make a scan of it, and send it to me at firstname.lastname@example.org. (Put the words "old stuff" in the subject line.) We'll get all the submissions together and put them in a nostalgic gallery. Thanks, and happy digging!
