Welcome to my page fellow teccie friends. I try to bring you technology from the past to the now. They say knowledge is power so without further ado let's get this show on the road. . Today is 17th November 2017 However D.Y.K that on November 17th 1929 Herman Hollerith Died?. . Herman Hollerith died of a heart attack at age 69. Hollerith's experience before he was 30 at the US Census Bureau and US Patent Office and as instructor in mechanical engineering at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology set the stage for inventing the successful card system for the 1890 census. . After this achievement, Hollerith set up his Tabulating Machine Co. in 1896. In 1911 it became the Computing-Tabulating-Recording Co., which Thomas Watson, Sr. joined in 1914. A decade later it became International Business Machines. . 2008 - Jerry Yang Steps down as Yahoo! CEO, After battle upon battle between Microsoft, Google and shareholders (including Carl Icahn), Jerry Yang finally announced to all he was stepping down as CEO of Yahoo! The previous days, Steve Ballmer said they are not going forward with any future purchase of Yahoo! Because of this, stock hit it’s lowest share price, $8. That, the failed Google affiliation (due to antitrust issues), and a very despondent group of investors, Jerry felt it best to step back in his roll. . That's our lot for tonight. Please join me tomorrow for more. . . . . . . #TerrierByteIT #Wifeidge #D.Y.K #computerhistory #computer #history #retro #technology #computerhistorymuseum #geek #tech #vintage #technologyhistory #trivia #retrotech #techhistory #computerscience #computers #informationtechnology #oldtechnology #nerd #oldschool #oldcomputer #computinghistory #vintagecomputer #retrocomputer #historyoftechnology #thisdayinhistory #oldtech #comeingeekout

Back to non-working Russian home computer "Radio-86RK" from 1989. The kit I have for recovery is based on completely DIY computer schematics published in "Radio" magazine in 1986. People assembled it from scratch. There were no same looking home made computer. So, I decided to go the same vintage way and solder my version of Radio-86RK and use it as a lab to recover my 1989 "Elektronika KR-02" factory kit. I found schematics on radio86rk.pbworks.com. It's compacted to mini-ITX pcb and can use ATX power supply + optional ps/2 keyboard controller if I do not want to make my own vintage keyboard. But probably I'll make it. Also, 8/16 memory chips replaced by one modern SRAM chip. The rest of the computer is the same as it was in 1986. Just finished to solder resistors. #radio86rk #homecomputer #classiccomputer #retrocomputer #pcb #russiancomputer #retrotech #oldcomputer

BATMAN: THE CAPED CRUSADER (1988) Ocean Software - ZX-Spectrum Pasaron casi 30 años del lanzamiento de este juego, y es aún hoy, en 2017 quizás uno de los mejores BATMAN jamás creados, obra del recordadisimo y carismático Jonathan "Joffa" Smith quien supo darle un toque único al juego en su estética que lo hiciera distinto a todo lo conocido y a la vez fiel al comic original gracias al uso de Viñetas que se abrían cual Comic impreso en los pasos y transiciones de una pantalla o habitación a otra. Más que recomendado volverlo a jugar o jugarlo si nunca se lo jugó, es una experiencia que debe ser vivida por todo fanático... recomendación especial para @bruce_wayne__89 🦇🕹😉 #batman #zxspectrum #zxspectrum48k #spectrum #spectrum48k #sinclairspectrum #oceansoftware #specialfx #batmanthecapedcrusader #retrogamer #retrocomputer #retrocollector #retrocollective #retrogaming #retrogames #8bitgaming #8bitgames #zxspectrumgames #spectrumgames #oldgames #retro #retromaniac #retromaniacos #8bits #8bitsgames #retrocomputing #gamesaddict #videogames #retrovideogames #jonathansmith
