    I may have a Roland Sound Canvas for you!

  2. Barbara Sazynski says:

    I believe I may have a TRS-80 available. Would you be interested in purchasing? It is part of an estate that is being liquidated.

    • Bryan says:

      Yes, we may be interested. If you can provide model number I can let you know if it is something we would be interested in. Thanks!

    I live in Florence Oregon. I was the worldwide corporate Senior Quality Engineer for Tandon Computers from 1988 to 1992 when they were about to go bankrupt. I have 286/386/486 computers along with monitors, keyboards, data pacs. Might still have all the manuals. These were my working computers when I worked there. Too heavy to ship. Interested?

    I am in the process of downsizing and I need to find a home for a TRS80 Computer a TRS80 Modem II and a Daisy Wheel Printer that I would be interested in donating these items to a museum. My brother-in-law gave these to me in the early 1980’s when he purchased a new computer. If I do not find a home for these items, I will have no other option than to dispose of them in our local land fill and I do not want to do that. Please consider accepting these as a donation. Thank You

    Hello Bryan,
    Would you be interested in a donation of another Osborne 1 computer, complete with manual, program disks, dust cover, and several issues of
    Osborne Portable Companion magazine to add to your collection or to use to swap for items on your”wishlist.”

    Hi Bryan,

    I like your computer museum, tho regrettably it’s not close to me. Anyway, are you interested in any 1970s mainframe stuff? I have a couple of IBM publications posted on eBay as well as a few other reference manuals in my basement. I could donate these… I can send you a list of what I’ve got if you want.

    I have an almost complete Exidy Sorcerer with expansion chassis, ROM packs, external dual 8″ floppy, HI-80 plotter, other peripherals and manuals. Best offer will be considered.

  8. Watts Hill says:

    I have a collection of Apple Mac IIs, peripherals and a Mac SE with internal HD.
    As a former developer I also have years of Beta OSs from the early days which may be of value for getting copies of old OS no longer available. (Most on 3.5″ floppy) I would be glad to donate if going to a museum to help other see what was.
