HCM - Home Computer Museum

Hey guys, I just came across this really neat site called the HCM - Home Computer Museum (HCM) by Kerstin and Stefan Walgenbach. Its new to me but has been around from the 1990s and many of you may already know of this museum. If you are into history and especially history of computers, this would be an ideal site to spend some time like you would normally do in a brick and mortar museum checking out the over 500 different machines in the museum's collection. The collection is well organized with links leading to the Inventory, Manufacturer, New Items as well as a wonderful Exhibition. From what I can see, the items in the New Items section span from 1996 to 2006. Other sections are What's New? - which is the page I started on; History; Flea Market – which has a Trade-List and a Want-List; Know-How; a Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) section and a Special Thanks section thanking contributors to the museum. With this said, set some time aside and take a stroll down memory lane or get acquainted with some neat throw-back technology at I am really glad I came across this site and am looking forward to hearing from you on your experience as you leisurely browse the wonderful items on display.

As always, email me with your topics and let’s have a good time learning together!

In His Service,
