That particular photo album taken by Frank Larosa only represents a portion of the upper floor at the Computer History Museum during last weekend's Vintage Computer Festival.

I'll be posting my own album soon which has the more impressive permanent museum downstairs. Not that someone reconstructing a living, working PDP data center just for a weekend-long festival isn't impressive. :)

Wow, those are some damn good-looking classic machines. And some pretty ugly geeks :)
But seriously, that hardware makes me drool. I want it all :)

I recommend www.old-computers.com for more old computer pr0n.

Also, check out the book "Digital Retro" on Amazon.

it's so usa computers, no consoles ?
is someone known a real museum of europeans computers (not pc, not online only) ?
Perhaps you should check out the alt party pix at slengpung, as they have many computers/consoles/really cool things. And as I understand it, are used for productions.
You could also check my apartment, though that tends to be Amiga related, but there are some other wierd things there. Another advantage right now is the fact that my apartment has no power and no Truck in it, so you could actually prolly borrow one of the Amigas.

I would also hurt you if you did that.
i'm still waiting for the museum displaying laxity's beat up amiga ^_^
