Home Computing History


Welcome to Binary Dinosaurs, the online display of a real collection of nearly 500 computers that begins at the Magnavox Odyssey from 1972, travels through the 'pong wars' of the 1970s, visits the explosion of diversity and excellence that created the home computer market of the early 80's and ends, well, as time has gone on it's been proved it doesn't end - my former main Mac G5 is here now and pretty soon the machine this site is running from could be declared vintage too...

(I must at this point apologise for most of the pictures here, they were mostly taken in 2000-2003 when bandwidth was precious and digital cameras weren't the best)
Head up to the Control Panel to find your way around the site and enjoy your visit!

First update of 2021 comes courtesy of an ebay auction for a Tandata TD4000, I thought you'd like to see pics of the not-PA.

My finest achievement of 2020 was finally finishing the replacement keyboard PCB for my battery damaged Tandata PA, so why not go and read about that?

Something even google didn't know about until now, the 1981 AlphaTantel videotext terminal by Tantel of Ely, Cambs. This is the company that became Tandata in 1983. Click that link!
