Man Discovers A Still Working 30-Year-Old Apple Computer In His Parents’ Attic

quote [ My kids thought things were insanely retro when my wife and I played NES Super Mario on the oldest's Switch.

Tomorrow morning their definition of retro is going to shift significantly. ]

I miss hacker screens and ASCII art and green text on a black screen.

Damn kids. They know nothing of their digital heritage.

Those who forget history are doomed to repeat it. I gather the new iPhone has an amber monochrome touch screen, and all the games go "boop!"

Been meaning to look up the old gold box games. I think there's browser versions of them now.

I miss the time when video games weren't a thing.

Did I say get off my lawn?
