Thought some of you might get a kick out of what I've done to the wall of my basement computer room. Found some cool 80's Space Invaders decals at ThinkGeek and improved, I think, the setting down in my den of technology.

Have a look - pic and details in my post on my site, here (http://www.bytecellar.com/archives/000025.php).

Wow, that's cool. I'm jealous of your retro-computing goodness.
BTW What is that computer on the far right? Never seen one of those before...

It is my TI-99/4A (http://www.blakespot.com/images/ti99.jpg). It was the first 16-bit home computer. A nice machine that was not without its issues. Got mine for Christmas in 1982. I was 10. The grey box is the Peripheral Expansion Box - the computer itself is integrated into the keyboard console unit.
