Relics from the past

Guess this is my weekend for restoring old computer junk. Friday I tried getting an old sun Sparcstation2 running again, but I don't have nearly enough stuff to get it going again. I need to get a keyboard, mouse, ethernet tranceiver, and monitor dapter before I can do anything with it. I'll probably take a look at the MSU surplus store one of these days to see what I can get. The other old school project was to put our old tape drive back in a working computer. I've been pulling some old backups off of tape, and it's pretty cool what I'm finding… lots of old stuff. I'm hoping to come across a backup of the BBS that I used to run, but I'm not terribly optimistic. I'm guessing that my dad overwrote that with one of his backups. Ah well.
