So, tell us, what are your collecting goals for 2018:
What do you want to acquire?
What do you want to sell off?
Do you want to "right-size" your collection to fit a certain lifestyle?
Do you want to get rid of excess doubles and triples?
Do you want to sell recently purchased things that are not so cool now that you have them?
Is there 1 single magical and highly desirable piece you're hunting for?
Do you have too much stuff to fully enjoy what you have today?
I don't expect answers to each of those. This is not an interrogation. They're merely there to serve as ideas for discussion.
My own plans continue to be the same as before. Minor accumulation of documentation and the occasional spare part or miscellaneous cable or expansion card. I currently have:
1- Apple II, II+, //e, //c, //c+, //e, Platinum, IIgs.
2- TRS-80 Pocket Computer 1, 2, and 4
3- TI-59 Programmable Calculator
4- Gateway 80486 DX2-50
5- Pentium III 1.5 BX6R2
6- Various modern-day (non-sentimental) PC rigs for work and play
7- All kinds of electronic stuffage, some in good new sealed condition, some now exposed and beginning to corrode and decay. Predominately 286-class hardware from when Xenix was a thing, old stereos, CB stuff, power tools, server racks, Dell Dimension and Inspiron garbage. Some consoles and peripherals. Car audio amps and speakers, I can't believe I spent time being involved in that nonsense. Other unidentified crap and rack-type contraptions with wires.
With all the heavy iron and Apple /// material we used to keep in the cellar and basement finally gone now, we've gained back about 800 sq-ft. Probably more. Items 2 through 5 listed above don't take a whole helluva lot of space - a few Rubbermaid tubs. I consider that done and complete and nicely packed for the long term. Something I plan to pull out and look at on occasion.
Item 6 isn't an issue, it's all non-sentimental commodity items that we can buy/sell/trade/dispose of on a whim.
Items 1 and 7 still remain a sprawling problem. So I plan to redouble efforts to get it all under control this winter. I swear it! The final push (with a Bobcat if necessary) will happen in 2018.
