Home Computing History

Welcome to Binary Dinosaurs, the online display of a real collection of nearly 500 computers that begins at the Magnavox Odyssey from 1972, travels through the 'pong wars' of the 1970s, visits the explosion of diversity and excellence that created the home computer market of the early 80's and ends when things started getting boring (for me) in about 2001 with the Apple Mac G4, a machine still in use today.

Head up to the Control Panel to find your way around the site and enjoy your visit!

Since October I've got my mojo back repairing some of the museum inhabitants that have bit-rotted in the 10-15 years since I got them. So far I've brought back 4 PETs - 4016, 4032, 8096 and my favourite 8096-SK. While I remember how to code in PHP again I've put some updates on the BDFB page at

Thanks to a donation by the very excellent Mathias Ohlerich I'm now home to a Microprofessor MPF-1P in it's book-like case. Thanks Mathias!

Got a spare Zebra ZX81 kit lying around? Why not build it, but remember the PSU is likely to be 110V - watch out for the magic smoke!

Thought I'd finally got round do dumping the contents of all the ROMs I got with my last Enterprise haul 10 years ago or so. Pat self on back then discover a directory containing most of them from the LAST time I did it in 2006. NOOPs.

Finally created a Facebook page for this place after years of resistoring, I didn't think I had the capacitor to do both but we'll see how it GOTOs.
