Take this word of wisdom from your old pal the geezer Spike.  If you are
cleaning out and find any old computer from the 80s, and even better, from
the 70s, find a place for it somewhere and keep it.  Don't worry if it
doesn't work or you don't have all the peripherals, such as, like, memory.
Just keep it somewhere.  Fifty years from now you will be glad you did.
