The engineers that worked on the C128 put a little epitaph for themselves on the flipside of the board. (I think they are all still alive today luckily...) #Commodore #C128 #RetroComputing #PCB #RIP

Τι χαρά! Να «είσαι» στο 1981 και να έχεις μόλις αγοράσει τον πρώτο προσωπικό υπολογιστή με 16bit επεξεργαστή. Texas Instruments TI-99/4. Επίσης στα παρελκόμενα του, το Speech synthesizer. #recall_memory #hellenicITmuseum #elmp #retrocomputing #retro #computer

😍 This icon, embossed into the plastic of the original Macintosh keyboard. 👀 It also looks to me that the mould was made before (and not updated after) Apple decided to switch disk drives from their own “Twiggy” drive, which was very unreliable, to Sony’s new 3.5” disk drive. You can tell this by just how wide the drive is - Twiggy disks are 5.25” wide.

My Bible when I was a kid : "Mom, I swear, we can program with this computer..." And I spent my whole time playing video games... 😄🕹 Ma Bible étant enfant : "Je te jure maman, on peut faire de la programmation avec cet ordinateur..." Et je passais tout mon temps à jouer aux jeux vidéos... 😄🕹 #80svisuals #80skid #80sbooks #80s #1980s #childofthe80s #retrogaming #amstradcpc464 #cpc464 #retrocomputing #amstrad #amstradcpc

Hardcore 8-bit session - happily hacking away in Z80 assembler, doing things I wished I could do back in 1985

I bought this #TexasInstruments #SpellingB today. The #9v was corroded so I did a simple part swap and it works! Also came with the booklet and case. #handheldenthusiasts #ti #spellingbee #words #lcd #on #off #retrocomputing

Looking forward to testing out The Witcher 3 on this tonight, then maybe some emulators in the week🤔 . One things for sure, playing with this has really made me want to build myself a gaming PC. I haven’t gamed on PC (Properly) in, well, decades probably!😮 it may be time to save some money and join the master race. . . . . . #videogamesystems #virtualconsole #retrocomputing #RetroGaming #oldschoolgaming #RetroCollective #RetroCollectiveUK #RetroCollectiveEurope #NES #NESMini #NESMiniClassic #SNES #SNESMini #SNESMiniClassic #Nintendo #NintendoSwitch #Switch #NintendoGames #Techie #instatech #Emulator #Emulation #EmulationStation #Intel # IntelNUC #IntelNUC8i7HVK #TheWitcher3 #PCGaming #GamingSetup

My newest tech project! A Commodore SuperPET from the early 80s in amazing shape! Time now to tinker and get it to boot. I can't wait to see that green monitor come to life like in a Fallout game! #computer #oldtech #oldtechnology #vintagecomputer #pcmasterrace #retrobattlestations #retrocomputing #fallout76
I’ve been lucky enough to get my hands on the new intel NUC. It’s for a client☹️ but I get to play with..... I mean test it out, for about a week or so. . I can not get over how small this thing is! It’s a quarter of the size of my PS4 Pro and packs a punch. This would be an awesome emulation machine!😍 . The build took no time at all. The cover is held on with 6 small Allen key screws, with the internal led cover held in with one Philips head screw. With RAM and hard drive slotting in nicely. . Installing Windows 10 Pro took 17 minutes!! (Yes I timed it) from a USB3 stick from initial power up to desktop, with another 12 minutes for the online updates. Then on to Intel’s website for the last run of updates, all in all, it was under an hour. . Now I just need to make sure it’s thoroughly tested..... Playing Witcher 3 for a week is a fair test bed right?😁 . . . . . #videogamesystems #virtualconsole #retrocomputing #RetroGaming #oldschoolgaming #RetroCollective #RetroCollectiveUK #RetroCollectiveEurope #NES #NESMini #NESMiniClassic #SNES #SNESMini #SNESMiniClassic #Nintendo #NintendoSwitch #Switch #NintendoGames #Nin10do #NintendoLife #Ninstagram #Techie #instatech #Intel # IntelNUC #IntelNUC8i7HVK #TheWitcher3
BACK TO THE FUTURE PART III (1991) Image Works - ZX-Spectrum Finalizando la semana, es un muy buen momento para completar la saga y recordar este Back to the Future Part III, Volver al Futuro Parte III o Regreso al Futuro Parte III (como fuera que lo conociéramos en nuestro pais) Cuando comenté la Parte II había dicho que era una juego que rompía con la maxima de "Segundas partes nunca fueron buenas" pero ahora que comento la Parte III tendría que decir que "Terceras partes son Fantasticas" 😍 Al igual que en la parte 2 el juego está dividido en 4 partes Arcade inspiradas en escenas epicas de la película y controlaremos a Marty McFly y al Doc Brown en su viaje a 1885 y vuelta al presente... En una parte controlamos al Doc Brown a caballo en Scroll Lateral mientras evitamos ser atacados para rescatar a la Maestra Clara. En otra debemos disparar objetos en una típica galería de tiro. Luego tenemos una pelea desigual contra Mad Dog quien nos disparará con sus armas y nosotros responderemos con "Pasteles". Y para terminar un Beat em Up clásico lateral en un Tren a alta velocidad! TREMENDO JUEGO... SIN LUGAR A DUDAS!!! 😍🕹⏲⏳🏫🔫 #Nostalgia #zxspectrum #zxspectrum48k #spectrum #spectrum48k #sinclairspectrum #imageworks #volveralfuturo3 #backtothefuture3 #retrogamer #retrocomputer #retrocollector #retrocollective #retrogaming #retrogames #8bitgaming #8bitgames #zxspectrumgames #spectrumgames #oldgames #retro #regresoalfuturo3 #instagamerspain #8bits #8bitsgames #retrocomputing #gamesaddict #videogames #retrovideogames #videogamescollector
A 300 baud (bps) #modem from the #1970s . One baud was equal to one bps then, and one bps is one millionth of a Mbps. By modern standards, this is a 0.0003 Mbps modem, 30 whole bytes a second. Most of them random characters from the line noise (there's no error correction). For some perspective, this image would take 2 hours, 19 minutes and 42 seconds to download. Still feel that 4K movie is streaming too slowly? The very lucky people who could afford a terminal and one of these could read their email and write code from home, without having to go to the computer room. #retrocomputing #communications #hardware #electronics
