Ah the memories... My first "home computer" was the Texas Instruments TI-99/4A.  
Of course, not counting the Atari 2600, which was just the game console.
Now I suppose that TI-99 would be worth a fortune to some 

 I ran the Harry Potter books through a spell checker; none of those spells 
should work.

on our nec 8086 we just hooked up a regular cassette deck to the back of the
keyboard.... although we had an excess of floppies hanging around from a
warehouse that dumped a bunch of their inventory cheaply... so other than
the amusement of listening to the recordings on a regular stereo once or

and of course everyone here has undoubtedly taken a pair of scissors or a
xacto to a 5.25" .... or pieces of tape ... etc :)

Not really 'vintage' -- but did anyone ever have one of those VHS based data
archival things ?  You'd basically just feed it off the shelf standard VHS
tapes.  It was marketed as a poor mans backup solution... but I think had
failings due to variable quality of VHS tapes.
