Exploring a MASSIVE Retro Computer Warehouse!

Wetenschap en technologie

No joke, this place is truly mind-blowing! Taking a tour of Computer Reset in Dallas, Texas. It's a closed down vintage computer shop that's been largely abandoned and has stayed relatively untouched for years. Enjoy the mountains of computer hardware and software.

    There's a small Goodwill near me called "Goodwill Goodbytes" that I recently ( a few months ago) got a Dell Optiplex 3010 from ($35!) that only needed a HDD and OS. I put a old 3.5" 500GB hdd inside and installed Ubuntu, and now I'll be upgrading the computer sometime soon. It already runs Portal/Portal2 and the old 2005 version of Star Wars Battlefront II well! Current specs: Intel Core i3-3220, 4GB RAM, 500GB HDD, Ubuntu 20.04. It's the SFF version, so not much upgrade options. But I'll upgrade it!

    @Multiple Object Selector the place is semiabandoned and the people who clear it out are doing a service to the family who is incapable of managing it anymore. They should be able to make a profit for their effort. If you just relied on nonprofit driven nerds willing to personally fly over and add to their collections it would take forever to get rid of. Of course it would be better if they charge a more reasonable price for it or better yet if someone could organize and catalog everything and put it on sale formally for everyone.

    Being a computer geek going back to the early 80's, I would've loved to have picked up another Tandy 1000 EX or SX, maybe a 486 or Pentium to put my BBS on, but really... all of that old hardware is nostalgic, but impractical for a guy who lives in an apartment. Speaking of which, I have a couple Tandy Color Computers and a couple Radio Shack cassette recorders (the white ones used for data), an old vintage Tandy book I think. I'm looking to get rid of them. I was going to e-mail 8-BIT guy, but he's busy with his new studio expansion, didn't want to bother him with it. Any of your group interested in them?

    I'm just finding this video, and news about this place for the first time - nearly 2 years after you posted this. Is this place still getting rid of stuff?? I've seen what looks like recent photos of the building, and except for the address... it is no longer marked with any company name on the outside. I think I also saw that the place is for sale, so that leads me to believe that everything has been liquidated as of this time! I wish I could have discovered this place a couple of years ago - or even this video when it was first posted. I am desperately in search of a "black" XT/AT (preferably switchable, not auto-selecting) 101 keyboard. It would have a 5-pin DIN plug, not the PS/2 connector on it. This place probably had one! I can't find one on eBay or Amazon, and Google searches don't turn up anything. I keep checking thrift stores, in the hopes I get lucky!!

    Boy OS/2 was crap. We had it at work for a while and tried make it work along side Windows 3.11 (win for workgroups) then finally chunked em both and went Win NT. Used that many years then chunked it and went to Redhat Linux. Hell it was taxpayer money so they did not care. Even used IBM 3090 mainframe OS, TSO, JES2, CICS, IMS...wow memories. Good times.

    So fascinating, I have made it trough the 80s and 90s with most of this hardware and growing up with this stuff. Now seeing it so...derelict? makes me sad. But I also wonder, how we are going to handle all this waste...I am not overly environmental, but all this stuff ist waste, and will probably never get recycled or proplery disposed of. A hard legacy...
