I used to have an Altair until the basement flooded and destroyed it.

I still have an old Heathkit Z-80.

I've still got a ZX81, and an Atari 2600 (can't remember which is older). Do you know anywhere in the UK, that you can still buy the rubber membranes for the ZX81? Mines worn out at last after nearly 10 years without being replaced.

No, I don't. Sorry. I live in a moral (non-socialist) country.

I have an IBM 8086 in perfect condition. Both 5 1/4 " drives still work and even the RGB monitor still looks kinda sharp..

The 2600 is much older than the ZX81. For that matter, the Atari 400 and 800 (1979) are too. I still have both a 400 and an 800 - plus a Super Pong (pre-2600), I also have a MOS KIM-1 (1975). These are all in storage back in Maine.

Sorry, I had to get rid of all my Amiga gear when I moved. Still have my Atari STs and TTs.... It's easy to order the Amiga cables online though, if no one comes up with any for you.

I have a telegame, made by Philco and Ford together. It's a very small videogame, made with wood and you have two buttons at the console which looks like those grandpas AM radio turner. On button controls the right team, the other one controls the left team. The game, indeed, is pong .
It's PAL-M color. 2 or 3 at the same time on screen I believe

Man, I guess this all beats my (fully functional) x8086 with a whopping 640K of Ram, a 20 meg harddrive (stackered to 70 megs). Its an old Commodore PC10-III, with a CGA screen...

A couple of years ago, I wanted to transfer my old university papers and my novel off of it (to back up to CD) and I used the 2400baud modem in the thing...(I had 2 phone lines) it took a couple of hours for a couple of megs of stuff...it was wild.

Here... I've found something nice about my telegame, called telejogo in some countries:

It's a classic wood thing

In this picture, you see the panel:

http://www.roarvgm.com/systems/telejogo/panel.jpg

At right, It has three variations of gameplay. Futebol = Soccer, Tenis = Tennis and Paredao = Some sort of squach (or... how was it called, that tennis that you play against a wall... wall = parede in portuguese ).

At left (with those sliding switch buttons), you have "jogo = game", "treino = practice", "channel 3 or 4" (who does not remember in the old Atari 2600), "desliga = turn off" and "liga = turn on"

This has another shot of this machine:

Nice design, way cooler then that crappy Xbox if you would ask me

I never had one, although I've seen photos. Pretty much a Super Pong though, as far as games go, it looks like.
