Take the RetroChallange!
Get that vintage hardware revved up!
From the site:
"What is the RetroChallenge?
Its a look at old hardware by using it, it's a discovery of the kit you loved when you were younger, it's a play for the sake of it, its stopping computers ending up in landfill sites when they are still useful, its a bit of fun for those geeks out there that want to play with old computers.
If you have to ask why, then I would think that this would not be for you!
Erm.. There are none. Really!
You can enter with whatever kit you like - It would be hoped that you would be sensible and use something, old, obsolete or weird, but if you want to show all the great things that you can do with a 3GHZ Intel machine, then go ahead. I promise however, that everybody will laugh at you.
So what is retro? Well that is a hard question. Windows 95 and a Pentium machine is not Retro. But depending on what OS you use on a Pentium machine, then it could be considered retro and certainly fun. Depending of what you actually did with Windows 95 - video work perhaps, then again it may have some merit, but just swapping your current kit for Win95 and a Pentium during July? Well that's simpler to answer. It's just too easy to do stuff on that sort of setup. You can pretty much do everything you can now on a Pentium running Win95, it's just slower.
It's not that this is about excluding hardware or OS from a certain time period, just that common stuff 10 years old being used for day to day tasks, is not that interesting. However fun stuff with a NeXT station could be interesting. See how it works?
The point of this, if indeed there is one, is to challenge you to do something new, to learn something new or just play. It is sort of like a show-and-tell. Do something fun or interesting and let the world know."
