Cool! Great job.

Although I'm already employed more then 20 years at the (former) NatLab site I've never seen any MSX related history there. And if I remember correctly I also tried that in the internal search engines around 2000....

Nope, were are they located? I did see someone walking in a well known blue colored shirt with three letters on it like this website's name but without the dot com very recently. This was about two weeks ago on the dyk to the Strip. I was a bit flabbergasted and he was so busy chatting to his collegeau that I didn't took the oppertunity to make a chat at the spot. Though liked it.

Never seen someone walking around with MSX markings on the campus. I know a few in in our building that still have one as a hobbyist, but I do not think they power it on anymore.

When working at Philips ASA-Lab I knew there were multiple people there that actually did work on MSX in the past. But I think they are all retired for multiple years now.
I did find some MSX related trash (non-Philips) there that I could not relate to any product. From a colleague I have got some prototype Philips MSX computers. A VG8240 as on this page, an NMS-8280 with a harddisk and some very early prototype that has the same functionality as the VG8240 but with a complete different internal design.

One of the former Philips Beatrix site/SLE Lab IT support collegeaus kept a personal museum of computers (vax, pdp8 etc) in the attic of HTC41. Unfortunately facility management cleaned the storage area during his abscence...what a pity...

The buildings had letters and almost on the top floor of one the Philips Radio Amateurs were situated. I once went there to pick up some components.
