Commodores, Amigas, and others destroyed.  Fortunately, no one was hurt.

That seriously sucks. The only good parts of this are that no one was hurt and that he had documented the collection online. May he remain safe. . .

I wonder if it will be rebuilt? Could be a place to send duplicates and triplicates of extra hardware you may have laying around.

There are REAL war crimes being committed against the people of Ukraine.  The loss of vintage computers is nothing.

That is true, and yet the Russians are also destroying the culture and national infrastructure of the non-Russian nation they invaded. 

 

This is exactly what [Invoke Godwin's Law] what the Nazis did when they conquered other countries...yeah I said it because history is repeating itself.

I just can’t get over this why russia have destroyed a retro computer musuem in ukraine ,it has nothing to do with oekraine’s history or with ukraine’s militairy activities,damn if i was the owner of that retro musseum and i knew that russia would also destroy civillian targets including houses,hoapitals,museums,theaters etc,, i would,ve moved all those retro stuff into a bunker 300 milines inside the earth to make sure that those retro stuff are pretty much save from destruction,but as a retro fan of old computers i almost got sleepless nights because of this shit what happemed.

russia i like your history and your country but please stop this [email protected] nonsense pointless war.

I don't think they said "Retrocomputers! Blow'em up!" They're just mowing down everything.

This.  War is hell.  Warfare incurs plenty of collateral damage in everything, including people and culture.

Well, actually war is a lot more about the collateral damage than anything else.

Everything that happens to the civilians is what ends up making a war a war and not a single one of those things is something one would like to remember, including the perpetrators who usually need to "decorate"/retro-correct their often inhumane acts as something else.

Seems like the brain is separated into 2 parts. The war part that is uncontrollable, the feel-bad part that needs to rewrite history. The defective presidents and leaders have structural issues and no connect between the two parts. Been that way like 4ever.

My statement stands.

Bastiat would remind you that leaders do not become leaders without the electorate.
