“The Great Barn Find of 2022!”


Welcome to Floppy Days #118 for September, 2022.  And I’m your host, Randy Kindig.  I hope everyone is doing well..

I decided to take a 1-month break from the ZX Spectrum series of episodes, of which I’m currently in the midst, in order to talk about some other vintage computer activities with which I’ve been involved lately.  There has been a lot going on the vintage computer front for me, as well as some changes in my personal life that I wanted to share with all of you.  I apologize that you’re just going to hear my voice for the entire show, but I’ll make sure not to drone and try to keep it lively.

I will talk a bit about what I have been up to, an amazing barn find, attendance at the largest vintage computer show of the year, and an incredible computer museum adventure, as well as a few new acquisitions (beyond the barn find) that have come my way.  In addition, I’ll briefly tell you about upcoming shows of which I’m aware.

Next month, we’ll pick up where we left off with the Spectrum series.  I have some additional guest hosts lined up to really dive into topics like tech specs, peripherals, books, magazines, modern upgrades, Web sites, etc.  I think you’ll enjoy the remaining Spectrum topics and guests I have planned.
