Retrocomputing, its What I Do

I really hate link-dumping, but this article is just too perfect. He explains almost exactly what I enjoy about playing with Linux. The powerbook project is a perfect example of this. I got what used to been a very expensive piece of hardware, for free, and installed an enterprise power OS on it, then try and do the most outlandish things with it. In this case, I browse the web and solve Project Euler with a nine year old computer.

  4. There is something to be said about taking an old computer and resurrecting it so that it is useful again. To me it's damn fun. Cheers!
