I have a "Logitec" (correct spelling); daisy wheel printer that is in working order; including cabels and manual: also a Sinclair QL computer that may be fixable.

Is there anyone in Christchurch who is compiling an old computer museum, or is collecting such things?

No idea about Ch/ch but Auckland Uni - Computer Science had a cool computer museum. All sorts of stuff from the old mainframes they used to old Amigas and bits and pieces.

Maybe Ch/ch uni does something similar?

The museum at Ferrymead has a section for this sort of thing.

As for the Auckland Uni one, my old Commodore 64 is in there.

I just phoned Ferrymead and was told that they don't collect anything after 1920.

Last time I was at Ferrymead, I was looking at a hard drive that was as big as a F&P washing machine. From memory 2MB.

?? I understood that Ferrymead took all the contents of the old NZPO museum.

Obviously made in 1919 then. :rolleyes:

Some of those early ones must have run on steam.
