Home Computers

Jumping on the bandwagon of Cards Against Humanity Family Edition I’m here to announce that you can download a free print and play version of the Home Computers retro collectible cards / trump card game ;)

Background

Back in 2015 I ran a kickstarter project to create cards each featuring retro computer stats. I wrote a little script which generated the card layouts, crowdsourced stats, and delivered the project!

Later I donated the designs to Centre for Computing History to sell with all proceeds to their charity preserving retro machines for education and fun. You can buy a professionally printed pack in a cool cassette box today from their online store!

Talking with the museum this week we agreed to make a print and play available too. So you can also download a version for free at the link below and print at home.

Enjoy!

New blog

I registered my first domain years ago. I ran webservers, kept a blog. Then at some point along the way stopped and began to rely on other platforms and social media. Now (like a lot of others) I want to claim my content back again :)

I pulled this blog together pretty quickly using Jekyll. Github pages offers an integration but I opted to install Jekyll on my Mac and use it to generate a static site and upload to AWS S3.

There’s not much here yet, but there’s a lot of material waiting! Thanks for stopping by…
