🧮 Retrocomputing corner

Like any enthusiast, I accumulated a bunch of old computers over time, most of them hand-me-downs. A Spectrum clone, buried at the bottom of a wardrobe; an 8086 in a dark corner; a 486, perched behind some boxes. All useless now even if I could set them up anywhere. Cool, sure, in a living-museum sort of way. Assuming I had the means to set one up, even just for friends.

(I did make a few games for the ZX Spectrum; two of them were even published on tape. But those were cross-compiled and tested in emulators.)

Right now, the most retro machine I've been able to revive and make usable is an Asus Eee PC 701, which is happily running Puppy Linux 6.3.2 "Slacko". But hey, it's something! It even connects to wi-fi.

I have plans for another one, of course. But I'll tell you when I get to it.
