I constantly find myself watching these Retro Computer and Console discussion and restoration videos. Since we do not have a general retro forum
like that this is the place

8 Bit Guy - I love this guy! Here is his Commodore History series which I find really interesting. One more video is going to come out that covers the Amiga but I really like this history


He also has a couple of games that he has developed that cover alot of the old 8 bit machines from the US.

Planet X2, Planet X3 and Attack of the PETSCII Robots

AVGN is more comedy that actual reviews though. I have watched a couple of his videos though and got a chuckle.

I just do not like the AVGN. He dogs the Jaguar bad and it was not funny.

This unknown computer is just so freaking Interesting!


after reading the comments I have found it is an STD Bus type computer - the 80s Arduino used in colleges and industrial applications. No idea what application this was for but everything in it is hand made.

Not technically a retro computer but the story of the ill fated Coleco Chameleon from Lady Decade is good

For years, an ongoing battle is fought by a group of Engineers to make a product that their industry thought impossible: a processor so cheap it could change the world. But to make it happen they would have to struggle in ways they could have never expected.

This an older history of the Commodore Amiga by Nostalgia Nerd. It has a bunch of good information and I love the accent of these documentaries :)

    Past*
  • vypur85 vypur85:
    Missing this place much. Wish that WE is still a thing now, just like the past when everything was so active.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    Are you in Taiwan or Mainland China?
  • vypur85 vypur85:
    I'm in Mainland. At Wuhan. The place where all shit began...
  • vypur85 vypur85:
    Lol. After one whole year here, I learnt a few good and bad things about China.
  • vypur85 vypur85:
    Everything you do is pretty much observed. There are eyes everywhere... They can even read your Wechat texts if they want to...
  • vypur85 vypur85:
    But it's pretty much safe here. Walking alone in the middle of the night in weird dark alleys is completely safe...
  • The Helper The Helper:
    that is cool
  • The Helper The Helper:
    at least its safe
  • jonas jonas:
    Haha, I remember taking a taxi in Beijing last year and the cabbie lectured me about how safe China is compared to America, then he made a gun with his fingers and pretended to shoot in the air while making "pew pew" sounds
  • jonas jonas:
    I pmed you my wechat, I'm thinking about visiting wuhan this year
  • jonas jonas:
    Which company do you work for?
  • vypur85 vypur85:
    Haha yea they'd compare my country as well...
  • vypur85 vypur85:
    Hmm i don't receive any pm? Maybe I'm using my phone. Gonna check it out using my pc later.
  • vypur85 vypur85:
    I'm teaching A Levels in a school in Wuhan.
  • jonas jonas:
    You should see a "private conversations" tab in the chatbox, that's where I sent it to you
    +1
  • jonas jonas:
    Wow
  • jonas jonas:
    Is the school system in your country similar to Chinese school system? I could never imagine being a teacher in a Chinese school, what's expected of students and teachers is just so different from what I'd be looking for as a teacher
  • vypur85 vypur85:
    A Levels is based on the UK syllabus offered internationally. So the syllabus is similar throughout different countries, taught in english.
  • vypur85 vypur85:
    I can't speak or write or read much chinese... Too difficult....... Which also makes my life here in china a lil difficult.
  • jonas jonas:
    Oh, I see. I thought Chinese version of A-levels :D
  • jonas jonas:
    I've been using the translate app a lot on my phone. take a photo, translate. take another photo, translate again :D
  • jonas jonas:
    it also has voice translation, my colleagues sometimes use that
  • jonas jonas:
    You came during the 0 covid policy right? How'd you get through quarantine? Did you have some help with the apps and green codes?
