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. The original home of Miscellaneum. Feel free to browse through the articles. You'll never know what you will find.

What's happening this October

I look at retro-solutions for storing your TheC64 Max computer by Rotronics. Your friends will knock down your door, to get into your Commodore 64 advertisment from the US. I pick up on an multimedia art installation that is raising awareness for our digital dark age. People are searching and I have posted the Amiga public domain disks for Fred Fish disk 591 that contains the Amiga source code for a Monolopoly clone and a tiny-tiny font. Wow, after many requests, I have put up the full lyrics to the famous Commdore C64 ad, are you keeping up with the Commodore? I put forward my thoughts on what makes the Commodore C64 so popular. To my eyes the Cray Supercomputer line is the most beautiful electronics equipment ever made, I take a look at why they make quirky furniture. Can you ever imagine learning to use a microcomputer on the amazing Borg Warner student computer. And can you think faster than the Geniac analog computer? In these challenging times, I reveal my 8 secrets to thriving in a self-managing team. My current pick of the AIWA vintage range is the AIWA AD-1800 top loading cassette player. Enjoy!
