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!

Fully restored a pair of TRS80s in the last couple of weeks, go me. Therefore I've updated the Model 1 page and added a page for the Model 4P I realised I'd never created.

After seeing a post on Twitter earlier I realised I'd never created a page for my Microwriter MW4, so here it is!

After a trip to Worthing last weekend to meet Paul Miles, ex of STC, I'm now home to much Executel goodness including 2 boxed machines and service docs along with all the source code :D 
 
(I just need to learn PLM now)
