How Long I've Been Actively Collecting

I'm not very active :) Have been picking up things here and there since 1993 or so (mostly NES carts). I live in a rural area devoid of thrifts & fleas

Possessions In My Collection I'm Most Proud Of

It was my Apple IIE (with tons of addons and software), but I sold it a few years back for some reason (trying to track it down and buy it back). I don't have many "exotic" or rare games, the only one that comes close is Tengen Tetris :/

Other Tidbits/Comments

I run (among other sites) and was sucked back into "collecting" via emulation. Spent the past two years at, ran a Doom BBS and was an editor at MSN before that. I don't watch any TV with the exception of Late Night with Conan O'Brian, the Internet is my hobby and my job :)
