William R. Walsh
First experience with PS/2s: I first worked with PS/2 equipment when I was in the 2nd or 3rd grade. I was into computers then, just as I am today. Had a Kaypro XT clone for my own use back then. It wasn't until sometime around 1994/5 that I saw an ad for a used business machines shop that had PS/2s stacked to the ceiling--and my dream of owning "one of those great computers" finally came true.
I was hooked when I went there, and got my Model 70. Many visits to that store brought many other "members" of my PS/2 collection.
I use my PS/2s for both productive work and tinkering--so as to learn what does and does not work.
I measure 6 foot 2 inches tall, and weigh about 245 pounds. I'm 21 years old.
As per the picture above, I'm just sitting in front of my 9595-0MT.
Good habits: I'm friendly, believe in being honest, and work hard to get the things I want to have.
Bad habits: (Shocking, eh?) Eating too much, somewhat self-centered, quick temper.
The entire basement of the Walsh House is dedicated to my computers. For the most part, I have plenty of room for what I do. However, the whole place was a mess when I came in and still is, despite the fact that I do try to clean it up.
You can think of these pictures as continually outdated, if that. I am shooting some new ones (12/29) but it may be a while before they are posted.

Have spent all my life so far living in Farmer City, Illinois. I couldn't think of a better place to be. Nice and quiet with plenty of computer work to keep my small business going.
Well, to know about them, you should check out my computer collection.
Most used PS/2? Any of the model 25s, 70-E61, Model 90, Server 500. It's hard to say for certain.
Favorite music: Country & Oldies.
