 what is this


>> ’what there’s here?’
   here you can find infos, links, photos, misc about some *old* computer hardware and components...
>> ’why this site?’
   because.... the old is coool !! seriously, it’s to gather together infos we found, and also to help people like us searching throught the net.
>> ’what’s the meaning of "tolla"?’
   you won’t find the term in any language, it’s our slang way to name old and performant (for times ago :-) computer systems or peripherals.
>> ’who collect data and computers?’
   a group of students of turin (italy).



oh, yeah, THAT is a tolla!
