    Yeah, good point :-)

    As for the DRAM, you are missing a couple in DIP, ZIP (aargh!) and SIPP packages!

    You're right, they aren't all that old. I'll have to Google what DIP, ZIP, or SIPP is .

    If you've got any interesting old pieces I would gladly take them to photograph!

    I love this subject... If any of you visit England, there is a very nice computer museum next to Bletchley Park (of WWII fame), which is about 1hr north of London.

    jp - it's amazing how much of this stuff I had sitting around (and almost threw away) before coming upon the idea to photograph it. Duh! I really think the anachronism between the subject and medium is interesting.

    I would like to come up with 20-30 images/prints and maybe pitch it to a gallery this year. I think I'll start with making 8x10 "proof" prints of everything and then standardize on 20x24 "gallery" prints if I get the opportunity.

    Years ago I wanted to repair an old Zenith floor-standing radio. I bought a book on how to restore old radios-- it said to pull the chassis out of the cabinet, plug it in, then turn it on. Watch the tubes. The tubes that didn't glow were bad and needed to be replaced. I did this, and in a few seconds a capacitor the size of a shotgun shell exploded "BLAM!". I looked in a mirror: my hair was blown back and my face was blackened. I looked like Wile E. Coyote after the Acme bomb blows up in his hands. It's a wonder I didn't blind myself. I replaced the capacitor and got the thing going, though.
