I built this site for true computer hobbyist that have an interest in using and maintaining some of the vintage software and hardware that IBM has blessed the world of
computing with. For those of us that think something was lost when computers became a point and click affair, that relished building an electronic kit, or bringing
back to life a dusty old relic of ancient computer history, this site is for you. There is always an old gem on
ebay that needs to be rescued. Always another facet of
the complex character based operating systems of the past to be investigaed. These old OS's actually came with manuals, lots of them, that are still available on
bitsavers.org. This site is a wonderfull resource for investigating old software and hardware. So put down your soldering iron, or
video game console, and take a trip to the distant computing past. It's more interesting than virtual reality websites or online games.
Things I learned while developing this site
Here are some of the oddball stuff I came across while working on this site. If you have any unusual problems with Java or PHP
used in a live webpage that were resolved and you want to share the solution with the world just email me a brief description
and I will try to get it on this site. Please do not submit copyrighted material.
