Howdy from Texas!

Recommended Posts

I'm new to the forum and site, but not really new to the project - I remember David talking about it when he first posted those videos - but I didn't realize it had come so far until today with his Petscii Robots video release. I'm absolutely looking forward to this.

About Me: I'm a full stack developer, currently transitioning into data science. I love retro tech, but no real collection yet beyond some older gaming consoles and emulators. I'm in the process of sourcing the parts for my ideal 1999 machine that middle school me would have killed for. And I'm currently waiting on "the one" to start my collection of older machines. I love the look the commodore PET, so something like that all in one terminal look would be awesome. Let me know if you guys have any suggestions, especially if I can find a way to hard wire a switch and fit a small dos box inside the case alongside the original machine. I mean, I plan on getting an X16  - so that may be the route, otherwise if I could find an old PET shell and cram the guts of both the X16 and an old pentium laptop inside with a small vga monitor. But I'm rambling. It's good to meet everyone and I'm looking forward to see where this project goes!

Welcome Wyrd.  You're in good company, I think.

We have some similarities.  I'm in Dallas, full stack, retro leanings but no collection.  

Your "1999 Dream Machine" reminds me of the stuff LGR does on his channel. 

I agree that the PET is totally an awesome look.  A PET shell with an X16 inside would be the bee's knees.
