As an update to what I’m currently working on most of the video is shot for the current project but it’s taking a really long time to edit due to the way it was shot. Hindsight is 20/20 of course but hoping to streamline my process even further for the next one.
It is a build project that’ll have 2 parts where part 1 focuses on the hardware as it sits and part 2 will go over some upgrades to truly make it a gaming machine. Expect this to be a very 1998 centric build…
Hoping to keep cranking away at it and have it ready in a few days or at the latest next weekend. If I realize it is just taking too much time I’ll cram another Extra Bit in as well as the last one I did I found was enjoyable and quite a bit quicker to make.

As the site is taking shape there are a few areas I wanted to point out that may be worth keeping an eye out on and my idea behind them.
Downloads – Software, tools and updates I’ve used for builds as long as it’s not available commercially to get from a legitimate source. Expect that to build over time as I work on projects.
Random Retro – This will be a big bulk of the site containing:
* Collection information – data on computers, games etc I have
* Articles – If I want to type something up more in detail than what I can cover in a video
* Projects – Things I might be working on
Links – Literally a list of links I find interesting or useful since all the old school websites seemed to have one of these…
Of course all of this with the explicit purpose to keep the site looking like something you might have run into during the 90s. Expect cheesy gifs, clipart and horrible link lists!

Last night we streamed Caesar III on the Pentium 3 700. Boy that was a fun one to revisit and I poured so many hours into that game back when. Still a blast to play although I think I had forgotten how insanely complex and deep the game really gets down the line.
Still I highly recommend anyone to check it out you like classic city building games. If you want to play or buy it today GOG is likely the easiest option and you can find it here: https://www.gog.com/game/caesar_3

The site is slowly… with an emphasis of slowly… coming together. This will take a while to represent what I had fully in mind but I’m hoping it’s a good knowledgebase where I can dump things about my findings and expand on things related to projects I’m working or have previously worked on.

This is the first post of the site which of course is considerably less exciting than it sounds. This site will primarily be a repository of information I collect on my retro journeys including files additional information I may not have been able to cover in a video and things of that nature.
