I'm a collector :)
I collect betas, stamps, coins and bills, old computer parts, old magnetic stuff(8 and 5.25 inch floppy disks, Betamax tapes...etc), seashells, rocks(not music) and battery skins... :)
I wanna know if you have anything special and you would share:wink:

Computers, no matter how old or clapped out they are, I cannot drive
past one sitting on the side of the road in someone's pile of rubbish to
be collected....
I just recently had to make a trip to the scrap metal place down the road
to releive myself of some of the cases as I was running out of room in
the workshop....

I recently pick up 2 apple computers as a result, a Powermac 6500/275
& a Powermac G3, complete units, then realised I should have grabbed
the monitors/mouse/keyboards etc-etc sitting next to them, never
owned anything later than apple II / IIe & never realised the connections
were all different from your usual PC... :roll:

I also archive bios files, have been for about 5 years now...
Plus the programs associated with them....
Getting a pretty good archive of Manuals too..!
So far the collection fits on 6 single sided DVD's...

i don't really collect anything else as it takes up space, besides games for my gamecube

Computers, displays (okay, one, they're just too expensive to buy more than one), accessories, iPods... iPhone is going to come as soon as it's available here.

Well, I don't really collect anything, this more or less goes into my hobby sections.

The only real thing I collect is the empty medication bottles prescribed to me (Which is in the range of 4000+ now), mainly because I'm too lazy to throw them out, and just throw them into a cupboard when empty.

I'm not a collector of sorts, but my Interests and hobbys range from Photography, Fixing cars, rifle ranging, Aviation, Extreme Sports, and the list keeps going.

Not a lot really, OS betas, not big on app betas and even less so game betas (though I was in to the Sonic ROM hacking thing some time back, betas included)... I did try to collect console ROMs but after a while they take a heck of a lot of space...

Hrm... I suppose I collect audio/video cables but unintentionally, and I dunno if that counts :D

Betas of just about anything, OSes (mainly UNIXes and OSes for RISC platforms), RISC computers, Apple stuff in general.

I'm a sucker for all sorts of computers too, although I tend to just strip them of their parts and then throw them away.

I've got Virtual RPC-SE with Risc OS 4 ROMs, if you want it - I can't put it on the server here though as it would be considered warez.
