Does anybody have any good ideas for what I can do with an IBM 5150 that I just rescued? It's got an enormous external 20 meg hard drive (woohoo!), an ubercool monochrome phosphorus monitor, and both 5.25" AND 3.5" inch disk drives! Unfortunately the original keyboard (one of those nice, noise ones - "click clack") got replaced with a new(er) quiet one
Right now it joins the 11 other computers in my growing collection of computer hardware. Most of them seem to be just one part away from functioning; the Cube needs an optical/CD drive, the sparc stations need two hard drives and one video card, the alpha needs a 2.5" IDE drive (I don't think these are made anymore - all I really need is the 2.5" IDE cable!). Most of the macs are in working order, thank goodness, as are the newer intel machines. Ahhhhh... so many computers, so little (time|money).
