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!

Ack no. I knew it would happen at some point obviously, but you just never expect things to happen when they do. 
 
"Uncle" Clive Sinclair, the man who is directly responsible for me sitting in this chair now typing these words dies at 81. I owe my career to you, sir. RIP.

2 years ago almost to the day I received a one-off thing of excellence in the form of my French FrankenZX81, it was a ZX81 once, but it's been kind of Robocop'd. Go have a look!

To celebrate 3000 followers on Twitter I revealed the special machine I picked up yesterday, a rare as hen's teeth Positron 9000 multiuser OS9 powered viewdata compatible machine from 1982. Go see!

Busy year for STC Executel repairs so far. Lengthy addition to the STC page with more pictures of the latest successes.

Welcome to the new Binary Dinosaurs webserver! The old Mac Mini that was running the place can now join the museum and the new Debian host can take over. Please let me know if you find any bugs. 
Also note that I'm now SSL'd up!
