So, you may well remember that I entered Retro Challenge 18 months ago, and what a fun crazy busy time that was! Well, the January Retro Challenge competition is about to kick off in just over 2 weeks.
If you’re not familiar with Retro Challenge, shame on you! But you can de-shame yourself by heading over to http://www.retrochallenge.org/ and seeing what it’s all about. Essentially, it’s a month long bi-annual competition where the entrants set themselves a goal based around old school computing and blog, tweet and share their experiences. The goals are pretty loose, as long as they are based on something from last centuary (modern emulators of old kit is fine).
The challenge I set myself was to take a breadboard based Z80 computer and bring it to life in modular PCB form in such a way that I could spell out my name on. Have a look back through my blog to see how I did. Spoiler —->
