Say hello here!

Was looking through some retro tech videos, and managed to get a hyperfixation on the PCjr. Now I just need to get one.
(thankfully, I'm just outside of Dallas, so I'll see if I can pick one up next time Computer Reset is open)

And my last experience with a computer around the age of the jr is a TI 99/4A my dad had when I was like 4.
PCjr w/ Rapport Drive 2 + 384KB Memory Expansion Package, jrIDE
Wanted: light pen
Docs (inc new/updated Guide to Operations pages) from:
Compact Printer
IBM 128k sidecar (exc Memory Options guide/disk)
Speech Attachment (exc installation instructions)

Hi - also new here, also in DFW. Just curious as I haven't been looking that long, how often do you see PCjr parts, etc. in the wild? (thrift stores, flea markets, yard sales, etc.?)

If you're interested in old-school computing generally, you should also check out the DFW Retro Computing group on Facebook if you aren't already a member. :-)
