When did you get your first Mac?
I got my first Mac from a random crazy guy running down Haight St. in San Francisco. He had a Mac Plus (and accessories) in his arms, ran up to me, said "TAKE IT!!" and ran off.
How many Macs do you own?
I currently own a 17" MacBook Pro, 20" iMac G4, dual-G4 upgraded Cube, a 20th Aniv. Mac, a Mac IIfx, a Mac SE/30, a Mac Portable, a near-mint 128k, several PowerBook 1x0's, a PowerBook 3400/200, a Quadra 950, a Performa 6400, a Centris 650, an Apple IIGS, an eMate, and a Newton 2100

That is a wild way to get your first Mac, but who is going to argue with a crazy guy? He wasn't wearing a long trench coat, black full face cycle helmet and calling himself 'Reno' by any chance?

So, today makes one full week since I relocated to my new store. I'm now the Apple Solutions Consultant in the Albuquerque Best Buy store. My Apple Shop is right near the front of the store, alongside the line of folks at customer service and the Geek Squad counter. Yesterday, I got to chatting with a woman who was waiting to have her PC notebook serviced, and she mentioned that she'd used a Mac years ago, but had since moved over to Windows. I ended up giving her a full demo, and she left very happy and interested in an iMac for her next computer purchase. While I was demoing the DotMac Photo Galleries, she noticed some pics I'd posted of the SE/30 that I was working on a few weeks ago - "That's it! That's the old Mac I used to have!" was her reaction upon seeing those pics. I laughed and mentioned that I've got a decent collection of vintage computers, and the SE/30 is a recent addition from another customer.

So, I came back from lunch today to find that she had dropped off two old macs for my 'museum' - a 128k (which may have been upgraded to a 512k) and a Classic. Sweeeeet!

The Classic is bare, and pretty beat up, but the 128k is in nice condition (though more worn than the one I have already), and has both the stock keyboard and mouse, all in a tan Apple carrying case (unlike the forest-green one I have with my existing 128k).

Gotta love generous customers!
