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 […]
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 […]
Channel Milestone: 1000 Subscribers
Well, after 14 months or so, the channel finally hit a milestone: 1000 subscribers! I’m not really focused on numbers, just find it fun to share what interests me with others. It does have me thinking a little bit about the content I release, and how to best describe it to others. I think if I had to […]
My Visit to the DFW Retro Computing Meetup
Yesterday, I had the opportunity to do something that I have been wanting to do for quite some time: I attended a DFW Retro Computing Meetup! Now, some folks may be aware of the fact that I’m located in the East Cost of the US, but I can say that was definitely not a deterrent!! The meetup was […]
Summertime and Channel Videos!
It’s summertime! That means that the weather is nice and vacations are abundant 🙂 Since those vacations tend to occupy weekends, and weekends are when I make videos, I’ve been working to create a backlog of videos so that I can keep up with that one video per week release cadence that has become a channel trademark. So […]
One Year Channel Anniversary Reflections
So, I actually wasn’t tracking this but was curious, and when I checked the “about” tab on my channel, I realized that today is the 1 year anniversary of my channel. That’s kindof cool! So, since I’m due for a post here (I try to post once a week), I thought I’d reflect on the channel’s first year. […]
Controlling Your Own (Content Creation) Destiny
So, for those who have seen this PSA video I made yesterday (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Mr61PYFmgOc), today’s topic is easy: it’s about being a content creator and being able to control your own destiny. In particular, I’m focused in on the YouTube Partner Program (YPP) as well as what it takes to have access to YouTube Community. To get access to […]
