The book description is of one with images of older electronics, the 'sneak peak' shows a book containing graph paper.
Which is it and what exactly are you looking for?

Stuff is a very large term.

The word pagan came from paganus , who mean peasant . Its was a way to significate than christianism was the religion of the elite and paganism the one of the savage worker class.

''Trickster shows us how we trick OURSELVES. Her rampant curiosity backfires, but, then, something NEW is discovered (though usually not what She expected)! This is where creativity comes from—experiment, do something different, maybe even something forbidden, and voila! A breakthrough occurs! Ha! Ha! We are released! The world is created anew! Do something backwards, break your own traditions, the barrier breaks; destroy the world as you know it, let the new in.''

How Vintage?
Back to the days of DOS when Windows was a program, not an OS?
Floppy drives, with tape drive backups? Dial up internet?

Sorry guys, I thought the subject would be descript enough.
By "swag", I mean things like notebooks, bags, and key chains. Basically accessories and/or office supplies.

You should have a look at the ThinkGeek website. They have merchandise for old Nintendo consols and such.

ThinkGeek is wicked over priced.

If anyone is lurking and interested, here is what I have found:


Nintendo Wall Stickers

Apple//e T-Shirt

Floppy Disk Notebook

Hard Drive Platter Coffee Table

It's pretty hard to find. I mean, once you've done the notepads and mouse pads....What else is there?

The Smithsonian used to have a pretty good exhibit; parts of Univac and Illiac, an actual optical character reader, etc.
