After a long period of silence from my side I finally found some time and energy to write a new blog. But wait, what do you mean by 'no time' and 'no energy' to write a blog or even add anything to the collection? What happened? I don't know where to begin but I will try. The short version is: We bought a bigger house, started to renovate it, and came into the trap called economy and lack of construction knowledge.

A long time ago I bought a dinosaur robot named Pleo. (From Wikipedia: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pleo) PLEO is an animatronic pet dinosaur toy manufactured by Innvo Labs, a company located in Hong Kong and Nevada. The toy has the appearance and (imagined) behavior of a week-old baby Camarasaurus dinosaur.
A view weeks ago, I saw an advertisement of someone selling a Commodore Amiga 500 on a Facebook group. It looked great on the photos. Even the box was in great condition. Normally I don't respond to advertisements on Facebook, but with this one, the price was not 'too high' and the shipping costs turned out to be not too bad. My only concern was to get it to arrive in good condition. I decided to go ahead and respond. After finalizing the deal and payment, I received an extensive report (images and videos) of various tests and the packaging process. I must say this is the first time something I packaged that well. My compliments to the seller Marcantonio Galati.
The Instagram page is really kicking off. Today, with a total of 279 followers. I love seeing that many other people share the same interest in 8 and 16 bits computers. You don't know how big a community is until you connect with the community. To reach more and other people with the same interest that don't use Instagram I started a Facebook group. This is a public group which you can join. Today, this group has 1 member (me). I find Facebook more accessible and easier to communicate with others.
For those who haven't already seen my Instagram page, I'm filling this up at the same speed as I fill my collection page. That means 'slow'. Just a few items per week. I was hoping to do this a bit faster but not everything can always be going as planned. Please subscribe to my Instagram (search for 'thecommodorecollector') or click on the link in the footer. I've got 18 followers at the moment. Everyone who is sharing mostly commodore stuff I will follow back. Go check them out for even more Commodore photos.
