Wow, I'll bite. I'm probably going to forget a bunch of stuff. All of  
this is complete and operational, with a couple of noted exceptions.

"Old" systems part of the collection, exclusive of 8-bit micro stuff

Apollo DN300 - 8" floppy, 8" 70MB ANSI X3.101 fixed disk, SR8. I still  
need a keyboard & mouse.

Apollo DN5500 - SCSI, Ethernet, Domain Ring, SR10.4.1

Apple Macintosh SE, Plus, 512k, 128k, HD20... somewhere in there is an  
external 800k Mac floppy drive, with a CRAY property tag on the bottom,  
which I keep as proof of the old saw about Cray and Apple.
Apple Macintosh SE/30 - one of my all-time favorite machines
Apple Macintosh IIci - I think every nerd is supposed to have one of  
these in his closet. Mine has an '040 upgrade that breaks A/UX.

of these in the early '90s.

Gould 9540 - non-SUN-derived 8 MHz MC68000 Multibus CPU, early

fun to find HP-UX for this guy. I have a couple extra systems, too,  
that I should probably offer to the list eventually.
HP9000 345 - MC68030, HP-UX 9.10. HP's little experiment with  
integrated packaging. I could use some extra RAM for this guy.

HP9000 715/50 - FDDI, HP-UX 9.05. I used to have NEXTSTEP on this, and  
it ran my internal mail and DNS in tandem with the next machine for a  
long time.

got it; I'm trying to recover the special version of CMS off the  
failing hard drive.
IBM PC Server 320 - 2x 133 MHz Pentium, BeOS R4.5. Used to run NEXTSTEP  
3.3 and be the other half of my main workstation until it flaked out  
and was replaced by...

feel a little out of control lately.
