On the talk of Europe & Tapes…

I recently discovered this youtube channel by Kim Justice.  She does quite a few video documentaries about retro games, and the like.  I found these two quite interesting:

The history of US Gold was quite interesting, along with her documentary on Ocean

And of course this video about the ZX Spectrum tape wars.

I had a Commodore 64, and although I did have a 1541 disk drive first, I did later manage to get a datacasette, and on rare occasion I would pick up a Zzap64 and did quite enjoy the whole idea of a covertape.  The tradition continues in the UK & EU with cover discs, which I pick up on occasion in Hong Kong.

About neozeed

What is there to tell? I've loved UNIX like things since I was first exposed to QNX in highschool (we had the Unisys ICONS!), and spent the better time of my teenage years trying to get my own UNIX... I should have bought Coherent in retrospect.. Anyways latched onto Linux in 1992, and then got some old BSD admin books and have been hooked on the VAX BSD & other big/ancient things since...!
