My name is William Maddox. I am a serious collector of vintage minicomputer gear from the 1960s and 1970s. Machines with core memory (no sissy DRAM) and a fancy front panel with plenty of switches and blinkenlights. Real computers look like computers. Real computers do not use microprocesor chips, Intel or otherwise, and they do not run Windows!

I collect DEC PDP-8, Data General Nova, and other machines that fit the description above. Also, spare parts, peripherals, documentation, and ephemera.

I have begun to document some of my collecting activities on the web, specifically a recent rescue of machines from the mid-1960s and an attempt to uncover more information about the company that built them. Please visit The 3C Legacy Project.

By day, I work with more modern computers. Please visit my professional website.
