Cleaning out some old files, I ran across this link that my son sent me a couple of years ago about a Russian fellow who started collecting very old PCs and couldn't stop. It's not technical, and the computers are almost all Russian, but he's a charming fellow who loves old computers and has single-handedly put together quite a museum of almost 200 PCs from the early days including the earliest Atari model.

That's a great story. I like how he had to buy many computers at a time to get the parts he needed and then sold the others and collectors thought he was a wheeler-dealer making money on their passion. But once he opened his museum then apologized and helped with donations.
