December 2018 trades / pickups

December started off with a local get together of people who also have similar old computing interests and this resulted in some nice pickups which are listed, as usual, at the end of this post. Every month of 2018 I have managed to keep a small blog post to remind myself just how much the collection has grown and what has attracted my interest enough for it to find a home here. The blogs have given me to opportunity to look back and appreciated the fact that everything comes around at some point and this in itself adds a certain amount of sanity and perspective to a hobby that is slowly starting to become more expensive as the years go by. With an increasing interest in old computing related stuff price increases are inevitable, as the demand for a taste of nostalgia takes hold, so it's good to reflect on where your collection is going and what you want to get out of your efforts.

The list below is some of the items that found there way into the collection :
