I like it!

Good luck with the tape deck. While you do that I've been re-capping my C64.

Too late buddy. I made that three weeks ago (BTW do not forget the caps inside the RF modulator), later I invented the new-retro C=64 psu, installed dual sids, painted it (I will paint it again) and now I'm actually awaiting for parts to create something never seen before and also to add a Jiffydos.

Well, back in the day I was an Amiga zealot, but that all changed after Commodore went bust.

As of now, I don't know what I'd call myself, but I call my collection of software links "RetroStuff", even though technically some of it was only last year, but the vast majority of the software was produced way back in the 1980s.

In English: Amigan
In Finnish: Amigisti

I never liked to label myself as a gamer, even though that's always been a part of computer use. They can do so much more and I never had a computer primarily because of the games.

on tumblr, we/they call it "retrotech" for short. I lean towards retrotech enthusiast, only because I'll play consoles too and most people don't think of them as computers.
