      So.. I decided to make a blog.

      My reason is to accumulate vintage computer news and announcements.

      http://8bitaficionado.com/

      One of the things I see a lot of heat about on here and on Classiccmp is posting of Craigslist/ebay stuff. So I will be posting those on the blog.

      Please feel free to give opinions.

      Thanks

          I thought of Old Bit, but it didn't make sense to me..

          Eh.. I kinda got tired of posting things only to get someone complaining. So now I have my own site and I can post what I want.

          I am looking to do something like "My Classic Car" where people send photos and a little blurb about their computer. I want to call it like My old computer or something. I think that would be cool. People are proud of what they have and I want them to be able to show it off.

          Also I am looking for old photos of people with their early computers, I think that would be cool too.

              Both.. Why?

              I like having people show off the computers they have now. You see me take a lot of photos at VCF because people are proud to show off the machine. I feel that pride.

              I really would like older photos of when we used these machines in their prime.. I have been digging through my mom's photos looking for pictures of me with my C64.

                Chris,

                Your blog is great! I just subscribed to the RSS feed so I can keep up. No matter which way you take this, it's good for the hobby.

                My only criticism is the graphic at the top of the page. On my netbook, that graphic is all that is visible when the page loads. I think you could get the same effect using half that much vertical screen real estate so at least your top headline is visible.

                Jim
