Actually finds would be more appropriate.

I was cleaning out my garage and I came one box hidden in the back,
behind the usual debris, forgotten. Upon opening it I am greeted by
my first computer, my modified Atari 800XL with 256K and Omnimon.
I thought I lost it or gave it to The museum. With it I've found 2
1050 drives and an 810 drive. Now that made me feel good.

But there's more ...

My SPO256 Talker board, a Peripheral Technologies PT-68K board, A
modified Atari 520ST (with 2.5M of DRAM), an Atari 850 interface
and a WD 1001-05 interface board. There are more things but I haven't
really looked and I have more boxes.

The return of my Atari 800XL really makes me happy!
