Yep, that guy makes good videos and he's got a lot of computers and things to try and restore. I'm subscribed like some thousands people.

I'm pretty sure many people here follow him
It's his full time job. $4000 a month in Patreon subscribers. Which is good!

Ohhh... Come on!

And he also doesn't have any place left to store a lot of things that he receives everyday... And the Postman just hates him...

He should solve those problems sharing them (some retro stuff) with subscribers

I personally got a bit tired of seeing him retrobright, or using his magic marker, baking soda etc... We've seen that a thousand times by now.

I would like to see more techinical repairs tbh, and I don't mean swapping non working parts with working ones...

Indeed. Luckily there are many people doing this, lukemorse1 is another youtuber that I frequently pick up from my home page. His channel is filled to the brim with all kinds of repair videos on a wild variety of machines and devices; console, computer and arcade.

Its just that some people are far better at narrating what they're doing than others which can add a lot to the enjoyment of watching it regardless of what is being done in it, The 8-Bit Guy and RetroManCave are some of the better ones.

I like his restoration videos he also writes his own dos games and has a keyboard channel too.

He has a methodical approach when fault finding its quite an educational channel.

His channel is great as is "retromancave" but my fav is Bill and Anthonys Guru meditation channel - pure Amiga hardcore.
