I guess for some that would be a pile of garbage...

but for me, when I see a stack of ST stuff like that, its pure gold... :)

PS Got a couple I'm working on myself, fun!

apart from the Mega keyboard, all of these are still safely stored in my loft now, -still- trying to find the time to clean them all up and rebuild them.
I did find my stash of floppy drives yesterday when deep cleaning my lockup garage (my main garage is full :) ) ans was pleased to see that i'd kept all the 'broken' original ST drives, as i've discovered that most of them magically come back to life after a few minutes spinning up with a floppy cleaner disk.

the mega keyboard was given a good scrub and is now plugged into my Mega :)

Nice little pile there...

I should take a couple of pics of my piles o' Atari ST stuff sometime. I've really accumulated quite a bit over the last few months. Actually I should really post some of it for sale since I really can't use all the stuff I have...
