retro

Feeling retro?

Nostalgia is a wonderful thing. I regularly pine for the good old days of computing from my university days. The days when I'd be sat surrounded by green screen Wyse terminals connected to VAX mini computers. The days when there was no GUI.

Well, believe it or not, those days are still here - at least in certain ways. And I am embracing those retro ways.

Continuing the retro...

This evening, more for fun than for any real serious reason, and following on the retro theme from the last post, I decided to make myself a retro green screen terminal.

Alas it's not a proper old Wyse WY-85, like I used to have an attic full of (oh how I wish I hadn't got rid of them...), but it's about as close as I can get using semi-modern hardware.
