Classic Computing Redux

When I accepted my current Postdoc position, knowing it would mean a move from Canada to France, I decided to all but completely dissolve my classic computer collection.  I just kept my Commodore 8-bitters, that are now in boxes at a friend's place in Pointe-Claire, QC.

However, here in Rennes (and probably everywhere else in France) there are a lot of "braderies", basically organized neighborhood garage sales; we have found these to be a great source of things we need.

And sometimes, one sees something that can't just be left.  Like this Commodore 4-op calculator (Model 776M).  For €1.  No, I won't hack it, it's just too damn cute.
