4 years has passed, time to update.

In about 1 weeks time it will be 4 years since I posted my first message on this blog; its about time I posted a second one!

A lot has happened since I started this blog then did nothing with it. However, the intention is still there to share what I am doing with my retro computer collection with the world – or, at least, other enthusiasts who have stumbled upon this blog or followed a link to get here.

So, in my first post, I said I was going to blog what I was doing with my Raspberry Pi but in reality, that’s not a lot. I configured it to boot to the desktop, activated the sound, surfed the net and put it in a 3D printed case. A few months back I bought an SD card with ZX Spectrum and Commodore 64 emulators pre-installed and an IO connector with two joystick ports on it. Actually, I think I bought it last Christmas time but haven’t tried it yet. My Raspberry Pi is still packed away from when I moved 2 years ago 🙁

Anyway, I also mentioned that I had discovered a thriving on-line Sinclair Spectrum scene, 30 years after it was first released, and I was going to get my beloved Speccy out of retirement. I did just that, joined some forums and groups, and thats mainly where my spare time has gone since. But not just on the Spectrum(s), I also tinker with the other Sinclair computers, Amstrads, Acorns, Commodores and the odd retro games console.

I will update the blog behind the scenes and gradually add pages for things I am working on. Projects I have already completed will be slowly added too so keep checking back here to see whats new. I may even add some ‘how-to’ guides for basic (no pun intended) modifications and repairs to keep those retro computers going.

There, second post done.
