First post, by ubiq
I got into retro computing back at the beginning of this year. Very much a nostalgia thing, with the idea of building (what would have been) the system of my dreams back in the mid-late 90’s. Specifically, I wanted to build my dream Slot 1 system into the sleekest modern case out there.
I never kept any of my old hardware over the years, so I was starting from scratch. As is common, I quickly realized that there is no one system to rule them all for this period. I also started out with the idea that I would just run everything off CF/SD cards and not bother with removable media. I have since come around to the thinking that this is more trouble than it is worth, especially when I’m targeting the era of redbook CD audio.
Nevertheless, I posted a thread back in June, but I could never decide what I wanted out of that build, and ultimately decided I just was never going to be happy with that particular case.
Now, I have a few builds that I’m fairly happy with, so I’m making a new thread to post about them all. Not super worried about engagement here, just want a place to blather about what I’ve gotten up to. So I fully intend to multi-post it up here. 😉
