Radionomy finally announced the acquisition of Winamp. I know this is not very retro but this software has been with me pretty much as long as I can remember.
I am still a daily Winamp user and hope that this only brings good things for Winamp and its users.  Welcome Radionomy!

Quantum “Bigfoot” TX 4.3 GB hard drive…

RetroDigital has recently (and very fortuitously might I add) acquired a Quantum “Bigfoot” TX 5.25″ form-factor hard drive.

While this might not seem a particularly special acquisition to most, it is for us.  The reason being is that this was the first model of hard drive that we had purchased as an upgrade for one of our personally-owned systems.

We would suppose there was not a huge number of these drives produced, as this is only the second one that we have seen in a number of years.

While the drive is “posed” for a photo-op, it is not simply “being admired.” This drive is still fully functional and is “earning it’s keep”, as it is now installed in a Packard-Bell Pack-Mate 7836 system.

Just in…

Here is what just came in… Thanks to Jason for your donation of Microsoft Dos 5, Microsoft Windows 3.1 and Microsoft Windows 2000 Pro in original boxes.

Sure makes me wish I still had all the original media I used to own.  If I could repeat the past I probably would have been a hoarder 😉

If anyone happens to have originals for old Operating systems or just generally old software contact us . We always appreciate the donations and will be posting more on each that we have setup currently.

Currently in the works:
RetroDigital.net BBS system.  – Testing stages but is going to be on line very soon.

BBS’s are a great part of computer history and unfortunately people are loosing their way.   If its retro/vintage we want to keep it going.

What software would you like to have us setup and share?
