Although my channel is pretty much a PC Compatible channel, I decided I’d participate in #MARCHintosh. I have fond memories of trying out the ARDI Executor Macintosh emulator as well as using Macintosh systems in high school. Back when IBM PCs were still up and coming with a graphical user interface, Apple Computer really had it figured out […]
Bringing it All Together
So, when it comes to technology, one thing I have always loved to do is to integrate different systems together!

“Feeding the Beast” while “Chasing What you Love!”

I’ve talked with some folks who are new to YouTube content creation and some are more seasoned. And at the end of the day, to keep momentum going […]
Viewing the Backlog!
So, over the past couple of weeks, I have been working on new content. However, I haven’t wrapped anything new.. I needed a bit of a break! At the peak of production for the channel, I was making two videos per weekend. However, what I found is that “getting ahead” may not be the best idea: while it […]

HP Colorado FC-20 Tape Controller
Yesterday I made a video about the HP Colorado FC-20 Tape Controller. This is a neat little device that really gave tape backup drives of the day a boost! Funny enough, the first time I had ever installed one was just a few short weeks ago 🙂 As always, it’s a blast to explore retro tech. I anticipate […]
