Retrocomputing is usually classed as a hobby where enthusiasts often collect rare and valuable hardware and software for the collectible value or to have fun in the use of it. Many expensive systems like IBM Mainframes, DEC Superminis, or SGI workstations have now become affordable on the used computer market. Other vintage computers such as Apple IIs, IBM PCs, ZX Spectrums, Atari, Commodore, Amigas and BBC Micros are even more popular among collectors for sentimental reasons. I'd like to start a group that is keen on discussing, displaying, coding, playing, etc. on their original hardware in order to enjoy and share the experience with like-minded others, while preserving the aging electronics for historical reasons.

    "I have several old computers and game consoles, including the original IBM PC and a Famicom disk system from Japan. The board behind me in my profile pic is from a prototype Convex supercomputer produced in Richardson, TX in the late '80s."

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
