Adventures in Retro-Computing

jwz seems to be having an interesting time with some old macs.

the whole concept of retro-computing is interesting.

i mean we've already got companies who specialize in recovering old data from older machines, since really, do you have the hardware and the software to read that obscure archive format you used to back stuff up on to now-ancient floppies back in the 80's? what if you need something on those disks?

this kind of thing can only become more important as time goes on, with people storing so much of their data in the random proprietary format their favorite app happens to use.

in any case, yes, i'm jealous, i wish i had a dedicated daliclock machine.
