Geeking it Out Before It Was Cool

RIP Amiga 2000

This is so great, I just had a conversation today with a guy from work about our childhood computers. Ahh, the good ol’ days of the family Commodore 64 and my dad’s Amiga 2000 — the Ferraris of PC’s back then.

From over at Boing Boing:

Mononchrom’s Johannes Grenzfurthner takes us backwards through time to Cyberpipe’s Computer Museum, a huge collection of functioning vintage computers located in Ljubljana, Slovenia.Dunja Rosina, Head of Project and a founder of the museum, shows us the collection which includes such dinosaurs as the Commodore 64, the ZX Spectrum, and the worlds first widely used business computer the IBM XT. Dunja and Johannes share nostalgia of the days of pirating games from the radio, the importance of the mouse, and the golden age of gaming in one color.

The space is free, fully interactive, and provides Internet access, workstations, educational programs and more to the public at no charge.
