Hi all! So, this topic comes up a lot, I thought I would link some resources that I recently shared in a Facebook group as well as from other places! So, without further ado, here are some resources and ideas: Now for some connectivity fun from legacy PCs to help you get online Ok, that’s all for now, […]
It’s been a little while since I have written here, OOPS! Anyway, wanted to take a few minutes to wish everyone Happy Holidays. I am on day 13 of 18 of vacation and have been having lots of fun with retro projects. Several new videos have been produced and added to the backlog! Hopefully you are having some […]
Retro Computer Virus!
So, after getting back from VCF East, I had planned to get to work on a video covering the event. I had considered starting it on Sunday, but needed to recover a bit from all of the driving (I’m not getting any younger!). No big deal, figured I would rest on Sunday and work on the video on […]
VCF East Was Fun!
Hi al, I didn’t write last week since I was at VCF East. It was a fun little event, it had a different feel than VCF West, and definitely a different approach! I hope to have a video out soon on the subject… I’ve been a little bit busy, more on that in the next post. I also […]
Headed to VCF East This Week!
Although it still feels like I just got back from VCF Midwest, it’s already time for VCF East! Fortunately, this time I’m within driving distance and will be able to get there and back pretty easily. I’m just planning to head up for the day or so, but will have IBM Museum with me for the trip. Looking […]
Work/Life/Channel Balance Part 4: Bringing it all Together
So, the past three weeks we have talked about work, life and my YouTube channel and how they fit into the bigger picture of what I do. Today, I’ll offer a few pieces of advice that I have learned along the way as I have balanced the three. This will be short and sweet with four bullet points, […]
Work/Life/Channel Balance Part 3: Channel!
Continuing my series on work/life/channel balance, this week we are going to talk about the channel! So, as you have probably seen in past posts, RetroTech Chris is a time commitment. Before I started the channel, my quiet weekends were quiet! Now, they are a little busier with filming and editing. Couple that with the fact that I’m […]
Work/Life/Channel Balance Part 2: Life!
Continuing my series on work/life/channel balance, this week we are going to talk about life! So, first, I think the running joke in my family is: Chris, retro computers ARE your life. Haha, fair, I do spend some time on the hobby, and as folks know, I like to tinker. But fair to say, there are three other […]
Work/Life/Channel Balance Part 1: Work!
Okay, so this week’s post will be a little different! As I’ve gone through the summer and ping ponged a bit between marathon vacations, marathon workweeks, marathon content creation, and.. well.. marathon everything else, it’s interesting to pause a minute and look at how everything comes together, and what is unique and enriching about our lives. As such, […]
Time for Tinkering (Plus Bonus Collab)!
As many can appreciate, a good part of the retro hobby involves tinkering! Lately, I have been spending more time tinkering and less time creating content, but that will change soon 🙂 With the DFW weekend trip (and a beach trip this weekend!), I’ve also had some busy (but insanely fun!) weekends too. The great news? We’re weeks […]
