RCR Episode 185 - Virtual retrocomputing

Panelists: Paul Hagstrom (hosting) and Jack Nutting (not hosting)

Topic: Virtual retrocomputing

For things you can’t physically interact with, how would you like to see or experience retrocomputers? What’s important to you for, say, an internet-accessible museum? Photos, movies, emulation? In-browser? Documentation? “Everything, all the things” is a possible answer, but realistically, what would you use, and what might the use case be? What is frustrating about existing online repositories you’ve used? Is there anything that you’d find more useful than things you’ve seen already? There’s a lot of possible information, maybe too much to really digest in one place.

RCR Episode 184 - Bring on 2019

Panelists: Earl Evans (hosting), Ken Gagne, and Paul Hagstrom

Topic: Bring on 2019

What plans are on the horizon for 2019? [Perhaps the same question as “What didn’t you manage to get to in 2018?”] There are some new products, new archives, any plans about things that are newly available as of 2019? Can we make it through this without making the New Year’s Resolution joke? No? Yeah, I didn’t really think so.

RCR Episode 182 - OK. OK. What's Next?

Panelists: Earl Evans (hosting), Paul Hagstrom, and Carrington Vanston

Topic: OK. OK. What's next?

How do you pick what to do next with your retro computer hobby and collection? Free time can be unpredictable, and sometimes projects get started and then stuck in limbo. Also, related - what is your “white whale” project that you’d like to do “someday” but you know in reality you might never get to it.
