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 August

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. If you are interested in making your own C64 games in assembly then consider our listing of C64 books available to read online. Gaming has taken some interesting turns but nothing broke through the barriers quite like the Elite space trading game franchise. I hope that you are enjoying the vintage audio updates as they are coming along. My most recent update is the quality AIWA AD-6500 cassette deck. Continuing on with my vintage audio reviews, I take a look at the AIWA AX-3060 media center. Enjoy!
