It has been such a long time since you posted your last video on YouTube, Terry.

I am watching the movie "Superintelligence" in HBO and an Epson QX-10 is mentioned @ minute 23, aprox.

I wanted to see that machine, and YouTube suggested your video. But I was sad that you don't do any more posts, for... 5 years.

I hope you are ok, and I want to thank you for your wonderfull videos, and for sharing your collection.

All the best,

Luís

Hi. I've been interested in computers since my local school bought a TRS-80 Model 1 in 1977/78. We later bought an Amiga (86) and I went on with PC's but have been collecting some "Retro" items since 2016. I saw your Youtube video on the TRS-80 model one. Ian Mavric seems to be the Australian man for them but I'm still looking for a Model 1 system and maybe an Apple II plus like I had fun with at school. Thanks.

Hi, Terry.

I stumbled upon your website while researching the Crush, Crumble and Chomp! game. I try to tell the history of the personal computer industry through ads from computer magazines (https://computeradsfromthepast.substack.com/). I'm very interested in the early days of the PC, so I'm glad to find that wealth of info that is your site.

Keep up the good work.

Hi Terry

I am about to start a degree looking at early NZ computing focussing in particular on the BBS.

Do you have any relevant material regarding BBSs in your database please?

I tried to tweet you but did not succeed.

Hello everyone

Looks like you have a well resourced website Terry. Keep up the good work.

Here at Ecotech Services we occasionally get vintage computers in for recycling. Needless to say they are NOT recycled. They are ogled over by the staff and then put into storage for possible sale at a later date.

Cheers!

Love the videos. I discovered them a few years back, and mentioned them to a few friends that have gotten into retro computing--they are a big hit.

I teach intro. to programming, and some students were asking me if I knew about the Commodore 64, Amiga, and Apple II that they had seen on a YouTube channel.
Well...of course I did, and pointed them to your series. Once again, they are a big hit with kids that think a Windows XP computer is ancient.

Hi Terry,
I have been a fan of your YouTube videos for some time. I will eventually view all of them. I've heard your interview on floppy days and your guest hosting a couple years ago. I have visited your website several times. I thought it was finally time that I gave you some feedback to let you know how much I appreciate all the things that you do and the hard work you put into all of this.
Greatly appreciated! I hope you continue for a long time to come.
Thank you,
Simon

Thanks for putting the NEC 8201a articles online. It helped rekindle my appreciation for the unit. I've just received one and am in the process of reviving it.

Also received a PC-2081 data recorder (Japanese version of your PC-8281a). Current task for it is to track down any documentation for it. The magic Google machine is turning up empty so far!

Anyway, thought I'd sign the guest book, let you know I dropped by and appreciate your retro work. Thanks!

hope this e mail finds you well. I have some questions I'm hoping you can help me with. Firstly, The sound for model 4 I have the CR 81 hooked up to the 5 din in the back of the model 4 and I have my speakers hooked into the Mic on the Cassette player. Using the games on floppy disks gives me no sound. When I use cassette I rewind the tape to play first game for example, I turn on computer, hold break key and reset button, type L , press enter, then type system and lastly, type in name of game hit enter and wait to load. My question is when do I turn on cassette? is it after I type in the name of game and hit enter/ or at the same time?I do know it has sound . But this is all new to me.I've watched so many of your videos! So good!! Grateful for any help.

Thanks so much!

First, connect amplified speakers directly to the MIC output from the DIN plug to hear sound in games. You don't need the cassette deck. To your next question, press PLAY on the cassette deck AFTER you hit ENTER.

I stumbled upon your youtube channel. The videos there are great! I then wondered if you were still active and I found this website. Thanks for all the information you present on all these retro computers!

Hi Terry, I have acquired an old Apple ][ europlus complete with a load of disks, manuals and the double drive. It all seems to be working except the red light on Drive 2 doesn't come on and there's no monitor. Whats your best advice for getting it checked/fixed and connecting a monitor please?

Any composite monitor would do, including a TV with a composite input. As to the disk light, until you can see what's happening on the screen, it's hard to know. In a working machine only the first drive will light up on boot.

Hi Tezza,

I really enjoyed your site and youtube videos. I was wondering if you might be able to help me figure out what this GIF is [giphy.com] I do not think it is a dos computer as the title suggests but a terminal and dot matrix printer, but I cannot for the life of me figure out the brand or model. Do you recognize it? Thank you again.
