Retro Computing!

I am a strong advocate of what I call "Retro Computing". I love the history of computers, and I love out-dated hardware. I miss the days when game designers had to make games that could keep you interested without fancy graphics and sound. I still have an atari 7600. I wish I hadn't sold my Commodore 128 (My 64 blew up).
