RCR 166 - Retrocomputing Replicators

Panelists: Paul Hagstrom (hosting), Earl Evans, and Jack Nutting

Topic: Retrocomputing Replicators

Part of the fun of retrocomputing in the modern age is seeing what we can do with new technology to help our old hardware do things that were never before possible, or difficult, etc. With relatively easy availability of PCB design tools and fabrication shops, people set off to make their own projects, and share them. And maybe make a few and sell them. And people want them, and then they run out of time, interest, materials. Could things be better?
