Anyone interested in writing for this blog?

I am hoping that more members of the 8-Bit Retro Computing group on will be interested in contributing to this blog by posting an article now and then.

I have outlined the details in the text to the left, so all you need to go is be willing to write something.

I'm also considering opening this blog up to swap and shop listings, so if you have some old systems, parts, or books you want to list here, again drop me line.

Speaking of old books, I have three Windows 3.11 books that are heading for the recycling bin unless someone here is interested. They are yours for the cost of shipping, that's all.

Cheers! ~ Jim

Added some more links.

You know, I could spend weeks adding links to this site, but since I do need to focus on my job search I can only spend a little time right now.

If you have suggestions for links, please leave a comment to this entry, and I will do my best to add them.

Could Cobol make a comeback?

While not hardware related, I thought this article on about the possibility of Cobol making a come backpretty interesting.

It's nice to think that some of the 90K or so Cobol programmers out there may find their skill in need.

Now wouldn't it be nice if there was a need for TRS80 Basic programming skills?
