Currently I do not have an update schedule. I'd like to produce some piece of content at least once a week, and produce something "big" at least once a month. 


I've started the write-up for the Atari 2600 and soon I'll be hooking up a Flashback system and going through some games.  I'd also like to do a video to accompany it. Once I finish that, I plan on going though my personal stories in, more or less, chronological order. Once I complete the 2600 blog, I'll move on to the NES, to Windows 3.1, Sega Genesis, and so on and so forth. 


Concurrently I'll be documenting my tinkering with systems I don't have retromemories of, such as the Commodore 64 or the Apple II, or a newer system like the Raspberry Pi. 

What am I working on?

Personal Stories - Atari 2600

I'm currently working on typing up my experiences with the Atari 2600, the first game system I remember using. I've reached out to my parents to see if they can help me refresh my memory on it. I don't currently own a Atari 2600, but I do own several Flashback systems and emulation, so I'll be demonstrating with that. Although I do have a friend with a 2600, perhaps he'll let me borrow it. 

Tinkering - Commodore 64

My favorite retro system right now is the Commodore 64. At the time of this writing I've been doing a lot of tinkering with the system, including adding a new case from a Kickstarter, using the Ultimate II+, the TOM+ adapter, and more. I'll be documenting my experiences with GEOS and once I get a way to get it online, I'll be exploring some modern BBS systems and see what fun can be had on the interwebs.

I'll be typing up the blog entry on an Commodore 64, using a word processor from the time period, and exporting it over to a PC for publishing. 

Tinkering - Apple IIc/Apple IIc

Using the Apple II community on facebook, I've acquired an Apple IIe.  I'm currently waiting for that to ship. I also have an Apple IIc that I've had in my collection for over a year now, so I'll also be taking a look at that. I'll be hooking up the FloppyEmu I purchased from bigmessowires.com, as well as a bluetooth adapter I obtained from 8-Bitdo. 


I'll be typing up the blog entry on an Apple II, using a word processor from the time peroid, and exporting it over to a PC for publishing. 

Current Tech - Raspberry Pi

I have several Raspberry Pi boards in my house.  The pictured device is my handheld using the Freeplay Zero kit from www.freeplaytech.com.

I'll be going over what I use them for and come up with some good projects to document.

Other - Accompanying videos

I feel like my writing is stronger than my video presentation skills, but when I started typing this stuff out I think I got a solid plan for videos to accompany my writings. I'll hopefully have a video for each blog entry. Stand-by!

Other- Inventory

I'd like to go through my collection and document it on this site. It will be quite an undertaking.
