Retrochallenge 2013WW

Posted on Wednesday, January 2nd, 2013 in contest, vintage by the machinegeek

The crew over at Retrochallenge has announced the commencement of their 2013 Winter Warmup contest.

The RetroChallenge is a loosely disorganised gathering of RetroComputing enthusiasts who collectively do stuff with old computers for a month.

The event is very much open to interpretation… individuals set there own challenges, which can range from programming to multimedia work; hardware restoration to exploring legacy networking… or just plain dicking around. It really doesn’t matter what you do, just so long as you do it.

While the RetroChallenge has its competitive side, it’s not really a contest… it’s more like global thermonuclear war — everyone can play, but nobody really wins.

You can read the rules and see the retro prizes at Retrochallenge. If you’re into retrocomputing and working on a project, why not enter it!
