Rink's Collection
« on: July 04, 2012, 10:36:30 AM »
This is probably my favourite area of the forum so I thought I'd post my inventory; although I suspect I might be the only person here trying NOT to collect stuff. Most of them have been acquired over quite a few years and I really try to avoid buying new items (there are exceptions)... but the temptation is too great.

Apple
Apple //e (How do I love thee? Let me count the ways...)
Apple iMac G5 (20", 2GB RAM, 500GB HDD)

Bandai
Wonderswan + Wonderwitch Development Kit

Commodore
Commodore C16 (in pieces)
Commodore Amiga 1200 (4GB Compact Flash "HDD")

Dragon Data Ltd.
Dragon 32
Dragon 32 (couldn't resist when a second one went for cheap on eBay)
Dragon 64
Dragon 200 (found my unicorn)

Microsoft
Microsoft XBOX
Microsoft XBOX 360 Elite
Microsoft XBOX 360 Slim (hardly retro)

Milton Bradley
Microvision + Shooting Star (donated)

Nintendo
Nintendo NES (not currently working - after I "improved" it)
Nintendo Gameboy (Mk1)
Nintendo Super NES
Nintendo 64
Nintendo Gameboy Colour
Nintendo Gameboy Advance (JAP)
Nintendo Gamecube + Gameboy Player
Nintendo Gamecube (No. 2)
Nintendo DS (JAP)
Nintendo Wii (+ soft mod)
Nintendo 3DS

Sega
Sega Megadrive
Sega Dreamcast

Sharp
Sharp X1 CZ-803C
Sharp X1 Twin CZ-830C (X1 + PC Engine)
Sharp CZ-81EB (I/O Expansion Box)

Sinclair
Sinclair ZX81 + 16K Expansion + ZX81SCP Mod
Sinclair ZX81 + 16K Expansion + ZX81SCP Mod
Sinclair ZX81 (back for repair/upgrade)

SNK
Neo Geo Pocket Colour

Sony
Sony Playstation
Sony Playstation (chipped)
Sony Playstation2

Toshiba
HX-10 MSX 64K
HX-10 MSX 64K (needs repair)

Also got a few LCD video games and am slowly building a collection of all the Addams Family titles on all formats.

Now... what I said about not buying things - that obviously doesn't apply to the intended purchases of an Acorn Electron (my first computer), Amiga 500 (mine was traded for the 1200 when I was a kid - bad call) and Dragon 200 (hell will freeze over before I find one of these though).

Small update: added a 4GB Compact Flash card internally as a hard disk to my Amiga 1200 (thought I'd list it on here) and bought an MSX not too long ago. Couple of video problems there but hey...

CF in an A1200 is always a worthwhile addition  :)

Yeah I'm pretty happy. Took a bit longer to get working than I expected (no fault of the £1.40 cf -> ide adapter from DealExtreme :)) but most of that was down to it being a *very* long time since I last had to deal with a hard drive on an Amiga.

Yeah,

I needed some help with mine, in fact it still won't boot directly to the HDD/CF, I have to hold the mouse buttons on switch on otherwise it goes to the normal waiting for a floppy screen due to an issue with Roms  :-\

That's normal for KS3.0 - live with it or get KS3.1 ROMS

i'm on a stock 3.0 A1200 from the first year of the model's release and it boots straight into the "HDD" fine. No idea what's happening with yours Panther.

You are not alone, I rejigged my toy room over the weekend and freed up some display shelf space, have already filled the slots with items on the wish list, damn you ebay!

Now I am full again so will have to reapply the brakes.

Lol. It's got to the stage I'm now having to build my own shelving units to fit all the crap in.

However, I have just shed one item (which makes a nice change). The Microvision console that I've been promising RCM since I first met them actually made it into the post last week.

Finally finished repairing and modding ZX81s so I've returned two of them to their rightful owner (after the best part of a year).

Sad to see them go since i'm now left with only one.
