Vintage Gaming Collection Washed Away In Aussie Floods

Over the past week, large areas of Australia's eastern seaboard have been
ravaged by floods. Billions of dollars worth
of damage has been done, and sitting quietly amidst that tally is this man's
retro gaming hardware collection.

Aussie collector NFG's house in Queensland was among those affected, flood
waters getting into his home and destroying
many of his personal belongings. Among those belongings was an amazing
collection of retro gaming hardware, once a
glittering array of the medium's past, now a worthless pile of mud-soaked
plastic and chipboards (and rare Nintendo
hanafuda cards).

Hope he doesn't ditch the stuff without tgrying to salvage what he can, a
good clean would likely being a lot of that stuff back to life.

I've done a bit of that sort of recovery before with worthwhile results,
though admittedly not to that scale!
