Retro Web Sites

So I may have gone a little overboard, but, I’m trying to create a handful of sites that cater to various retro and vintage computing interests, so hopefully one or more of these may meet your needs.

I’m a CoCoNut! is a web site dedicated to the Tandy Color Computer, with links to the various projects, blogs, communities, podcasts, emulators, downloads, etc.  This is your one-stop shop for all your Color Computer needs.

 

CoCoTALK! is the nation’s leading live talk show featuring the Tandy Color Computer!  Each week we live stream on YouTube and are also available as a podcast on iTunes, Google Play, Tune-In and Stitcher.  Check out what’s new and exciting in vintage computing every week.

 

The Retro Swag shop features custom, hand-drawn pixel art images by Instagram artist Joel M. Adams, which you can get on a T-Shirt, Coffee Mug, Mouse pad, etc.  The proceeds of this shop go into the hosting and production costs of our various projects as well as compensating the artist for his amazing work.  These are one-of-a-kind designs for the retro fan at heart.

 

We created TandyForum.org for those who’d like to share technical information, and not have to worry about how Facebook groups and other services make it difficult to find what you’re looking for.  This is a free public resource for those wishing to share retro and technical discussions.

 

The Rainbow Magazine was “The publication” for the CoCo all throughout the 80’s through the early 90’s.  There’s been talk of a possible “Rainbow Revival” and while we’re not sure what’s to come of a print version, we’ve attempted to create a simple one for the web where people can post their own articles and stories and keep the memory of the Coco and the spirit of the Rainbow magazine alive.  Check out TheRainbow.Online

 

Cosmic Aliens was a home brew game I made back around 1988 for the PC/DOS era systems, inspired by both Space Invaders and Galaxian.  It featured simple, text based graphics, but fun game play.  I’ve lost every program and source code I’ve ever had, but recently found a working copy of the game, which has prompted  a revival, and an interest for me to re-write the game to a variety of retro and modern systems.  This site will serve to track the progress of the various projects around this game.
