No joke, this place is truly mind-blowing! Taking a tour of Computer Reset in Dallas, Texas. It's a closed down vintage computer shop that's been largely abandoned and has stayed relatively untouched for years. Enjoy the mountains of computer hardware and software.

  • Here's the group for Computer Reset updates and volunteer work: facebook.com/groups/627459117730981/ And here's an update video on the status of the place as of July 2020! plworld.info/show/fqBujNOcqpyseZM/wideo.html

    • @Multiple Object Selector the place is semiabandoned and the people who clear it out are doing a service to the family who is incapable of managing it anymore. They should be able to make a profit for their effort. If you just relied on nonprofit driven nerds willing to personally fly over and add to their collections it would take forever to get rid of. Of course it would be better if they charge a more reasonable price for it or better yet if someone could organize and catalog everything and put it on sale formally for everyone.

    • Being a computer geek going back to the early 80's, I would've loved to have picked up another Tandy 1000 EX or SX, maybe a 486 or Pentium to put my BBS on, but really... all of that old hardware is nostalgic, but impractical for a guy who lives in an apartment. Speaking of which, I have a couple Tandy Color Computers and a couple Radio Shack cassette recorders (the white ones used for data), an old vintage Tandy book I think. I'm looking to get rid of them. I was going to e-mail 8-BIT guy, but he's busy with his new studio expansion, didn't want to bother him with it. Any of your group interested in them?

    • Curious to know what "newer" stuff they have. Looking for old IBM Thinkpads hopefully up to at least 2004 or so. Probably a crap shoot but I want to go here and see what I can find.

  • Haha, those "cat machines" @ 20:10 - I remember a small animation house in LA, way back in the early 2000s, that had a metal rack with shelves of those as their render farm. There was a "cat" in the studio name.

  • Very interesting video, i have been working on computers since i built a big-board CPM computer before MS DOS. I had for a long time a Data General One model 2 laptop, it was a $2800 unit, I have the original case, manual, printer and more, have pictures. I am willing to donate it to anybody that can pick it up or pay for shipping, it is very heavy and I am in Pacifica, CA. Let me know if interested.

  • This is what Horders "computer equipment" series would look like. Man the family that had to deal with this after the Owner or whoever it was became ill / passed away. I bet he was worth millions and who knows how much he hoarded in this warehouse / store, it seems he kept going years after he could no longer operate the store / sell stuff. Its sad, but yeah its cool for us nerds. Who love old computer tech.

  • IMO there is/was over a hundred thousand dollars worth of stuff there. Terminals and sealed vintage software can go for a bit. The cheapest CRT monitor on ebay at the time of this comment (1 yr after video) is $36. Most of them are $50 - $200. A computer person, could have turned this in to a lot of money, perhaps over the course of 3-6 months, maybe less, and kept some of that history alive. Edit: That was just the shop - I hadn't seen the warehouse yet...

  • Really positive that it is not just going to the dump. In 1976 about two dozen of us got together and formed the North Texas Computer Hobbyist Group. Some (like me) built S-100, some 6502 based machines, etc. It was an interesting time in computer history when it was possible to know all of the microprocessors, their support chips, memory, etc. I sold a S-100 4K static RAM board. There was a fellow that would buy the scrap chips by the barrel from Mostek, re-test them and sell really cheap. I had 32K of RAM and ran BASIC. That was a lot of memory. ;-) I still have my Apple PB-100. Always like that little guy. Thanks for a great video. Hope your ankle is better.

  • This brings back memories from my childhood where I would go to the local computer store with my cousin and we would dig through the scrap computers and parts in the outside recycling area before the company who did the recycling for them came to pick it up. We would grab all the cool parts we could find and then compete to build computers and show off the cool things we found:)

  • Now this is a waste management nightmare. It says something about what we've done with our civilization, doesn't it - think of how much money changed hands to buy all this stuff in the first place, then some economic value was extracted out of it and it fell into disuse. Now it's a waste management problem and the cost of that waste management has to be debited from whatever economic value was extracted...how much of the time does it wind up upside down in that process. How many thousand CRTs are in this place? How many pounds of lead?

I love getting to find hole in the walls places like that that occasionally have old hardware, but never anything like this. Also, not only was Texas the home of Compaq, but also Dell, Tandy and (obviously) Texas Instruments and many other hardware and software startups so if a place like this existed then it would've definitely been in Texas.
