I have considered selling some of my collection as it just doesn't get used, but I can bring myself to do it !!!

Snap :)

'Losing' an Amiga 1200 68040 accelerator. When I got the card, I didnt have a A1200 - so its stored somewhere.

Also ripped a few keys off C64/VIC-20 whist they were in storage.

Selling my original C64 collection from when was a kid,
A guy at work was just telling me how he used to review C64 games for a magazine back in the day. They sent him (generally fully boxed) pre-release games and he got to keep them - so his collection included a few that weren't released because either the company went bust or the reviews were so bad they'd decided not to release the game.

The whole collection went to the tip. Yikes.
