    Developing for the IBM PC

    Hi! I just got myself an IBM 5150. And I though that it might actually be an interesting experience to do some software development for it and on it. I am a software developer by trade so I think (or at least hope) I know what I'm getting myself into. But I would like some pointers on how to...

    Amiga PC bridge

    I've gotten my hands on an Amiga 2000 and a PC Bridge board. I haven't decided whether to keep it or not. I'm a bit curious about the bridge board, was it possible to run a PC environment (dos or cpm) alongside the Amiga OS? Was it common or have I found something rare? Also, out of curiosity...

    ASR-33 (and rack kits)

    Hi Since I've just gotten a PDP-8/e I'm on the lookout for an ASR-33. It feels like the right contemporary terminal to use, and I could use the paper punch. I'm not terribly rich and I guess that shipping this beast will take the better part of my budget, however I'm willing to pay a...

    The PDP-8/e

    Finally! After a year or two of searching I have gotten my hands on a PDP-8. A PDP-8/e to be exact.
