Last friday evening at 11.45 pm I drove off to Roosendaal near the Belgium border to catch a hotel.The next day I met Lino Lampers (big Dutch computer collector) and we drove off to Machelen near Brussels for the Computer Collector Mailinglist Meeting. Dimitri Kokken organized this meeting at his indoor Kart place called First Kart Inn. Some 15 other Belgium and Dutch collectors came also .Most of us came with large amounts of old computers to show what those rusty beasts still can do. However, after looking in one big room were Dimitri keeps his stuff we were all amazed. Over 450 homecomputers,boxed and unboxed, rare and common ones.

In case you were wondering what this posting is all about: Most of those are MSX Computers. After some talking and trading we all went downstairs to the restaurant andDimitri provided us with pizza's and other Italian food. Plenty of beer and other refreshments. Afterwards,most of us went Karting at his great track. At 5.00 pm I left to go back to Holland, with my mouth open, likemost of the other collectors. It was a great day Dimitri! I hope to see you and your goodies again soon!Do you want to be amazed too? Look at the photo's!
