The original home of the Miscellaneum

I love things, lots of things. Computers, reading and audio in particular. We have a small but dedicated readership that just goes with the flow. My goal is to bring amateur polymaths of all walks of life a light refresher on the miscellaneous. Feel free to browse through the articles. You'll never know what you will find. You can also read the website privacy statement.

Did you know that you can play vintage coin-op arcade games for free in your browser? Get your retro-creative juices flowing with these free Commodore 64 font packs for MS-Windows. I sip into the overlap between Audiophile and Cafe Culture. I review the ultimate retrocomputing unicorn, the amazing Sharp X68000.
