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.

What's happening this September

We all know about the awesome music on the Commodore 64 and now you can karaoke on it as well. All is not lost when I look into Abandonware. I discover how to use the Amiga Workbench on the A500 Mini. What's up with the retro-MIDI standard that is still powering music today. I revisit the amazing Laserdisc game, Mad Dog McCree. Watch the legendary Jack Attack in action. Let's replay the incredible Dragon's Lair on DVD. I discuss the vintage AIWA AF5080 media center. I play the underrated scifi game, EPIC on the Amiga. Take a look at furniture plans for MCM furniture designed by Norman Cherner. I discuss the ethical dynamics of the theoretical Dyson Sphere. With a release of the A500 mini, it's worth looking at the Fred Fish disk collection, starting with Disk 451. Enjoy!
