Poor guys. I bet they were fine fellows.
He looks like an evil bastard. (but since this was posted in 2006, I bet the poor bastard is gone now)

I like this. It reminds me of looking at the Christmas tree... while drunk.

Ah yes, I saw that video last year.
The way to determine the key switch is to pop off a key and take a photo. It can usually be easily identified. I don't want you to accidentally wreck your rare machine though, so I don't expect you to do this. (switches are usually strong enough to avoid damage when popping off keys, but there is a rare chance of damage if done incorrectly)

Ha! I hope you managed to talk that jumper down.

What is the keyboard like on this thing? Do you have any idea of the key switch used?
"Future wife" sounds so high-tech. Did she have one of those Jetsons-style beanie hats?
Did you actually type on that CDC keyboard? If so, can you compare the typing feel? (looks like Micro Switch hall effect, but hard to tell for sure)
Burgertime is probably the only game I prefer on the Apple II. (everything else is far better on Atari, of course)
I think Burgertime is also my favourite game for the TI-99/4A.

Nice photo. Pity about the scratches on the metal though.

"I just want to tell you both.. good luck. We're all counting on you."
I use that quote all the time. It doesn't matter if I'm only talking to one person.

Hey! I think I played one of these! I even remember the feel of turning that timer knob. Eerie...
Nice... but what if somebody tries to play a tape?
Look at all that grey! You need a nice brown & cream 800XL to improve the look of that setup.

Nice pictures. (...but they remind me of how much I hate sodium vapour lamps and their orange glow. You just can't see real night these days.)
I took some similar pictures to show light pollution. On one, I moved the camera accidentally before the shutter closed and the light streaks ended up looking like missiles fired into the city.

I hear those things are heavy. Shipping must have been monstrous.
