Hi Tezza,

Just a note to say "thank you". I found your YouTube videos and then this website while doing a little research. I ended up watching all the videos well into the morning! And I've been back to the website many times to read your stories from your collection. Great stuff!

I started in 9th grade on a Commodore PET 2001 (in 1979). Always wanted a C64 but had no money to buy one. I later inherited a Northstar Advantage (after I married in 1987) and learned CP/M. The first computer I bought was a Tandy 1400FD laptop. Learned MS-DOS. Then finally ended up in Windows, where I remain with Windows 10.

I'm not in the computer industry. I use them for business. But it is my hobby at home. You've inspired me to continue what I started many years ago. I had started setting up a small "museum" in my basement several years ago but it fell to disuse. I'm now back at it and getting it cleaned up. Can't wait to see if the N* Advantage still works!

Thanks again and I hope you're able to keep up the videos. I haven't learned to do that yet but I may have to learn how to put up some videos for these machines I have. Any tips on how to start will be appreciated. What equipment do you have for making these videos?

Take care,
Sean

Hi Sean, Thanks for those comments. Good luck with the museum. I just use my mobile phone for the videos now (Samsung Galaxy 5) and Windows Movie Maker. Fairly basic stuff smile

Great website! I have a Compaq SLT 286 that I bought in the late 80's. At almost 15 lbs., it was cutting edge and considered sleek. I've kept it in a closet along with other laptops which have been retired. The last time I booted her up was after Y2k to see if it would still work--It did!! Tried to turn her on today and it would not reboot. Got an error message that said to insert the start up disc. I have no such thing and would not know where to find it. I use computers because I'm lazy. I'm hoping you can steer me in the right direction. Do you have any ideas?

Hi Terry,
its been a long time since I last contacted you and I can't remember my log in.
I am still collecting but am having a clean out of a few machines and looking to repair a few others.
I have an Apple Lisa 10/2 ( XP? ) which has a faulty power supply and am looking for someone who I could contact to have it fixed.
It is completely dead and keeps blowing fuses, so assume something is not right.
I have read of what to look for, but I am not suitably skilled to go repair it myself, so would welcome any recommendations who I could send it to.

many thanks
John

Hi Terry. WONDERFUL WORK with your retro computer YouTube videos. Your back history and computer showcase are easy to follow and detailed enough without being boring. PLEASE MAKE MORE!!!

Thanks. They take a bit of time to produce, and other things in my life are a priority for the moment. Hopefully I'll be able to do one or two more in 2016.

Hi Terry,
love your videos. The Spectrum bought for me by my mum & dad is now loading WAV files from a PC in my garage. I also did a composite video conversion. I have an Atari 600XL I expanded internally to 64K running SIO2PC connected to the same PC. ! Keep up the good work! Oliver

I miss your documentaries. smile

I am reading some older computer magazines and in the American BYTE 1/1984 I saw a report about the Zenith Z-100. Cannot tell whether that was available there, neither did I have one. But having 2 CPUs it seems to be a quite interesting computer.

In case you have no "new" computers in your collection and can get hold of a Zenith may be you can add this to your collection and make a video?

Thanks.

You must start making videos again on ANY subject involving classic computing. Your series on Youtube is amazing.

Interesting website.

Any Commodore 64 fans should check out my game, "Hangman's Hazard", which can be found at gamebase64.com, csdb.dk, and elsewhere.

If you like word games and are highly competitive, you might enjoy a game that was designed to be the best of the Hangman / Wheel of Fortune category.

Especially good with 3 or 4 players and can be played comfortably from across the room.

The dungeon scoring system is unique and was described as "admittedly the animation is nifty" in a review in Run magazine of Oct 1992.

Check it out.

Thanks Mike. The videos are taking a hiatus at the moment...too many other thing in life which need my attention. There might be one or two more in 2016 though.
