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, well, as time has gone on it's been proved it doesn't end - my former main Mac G5 is here now and pretty soon the machine this site is running from could be declared vintage too...

(I must at this point apologise for most of the pictures here, they were mostly taken in 2000-2003 when bandwidth was precious and digital cameras weren't the best)
Head up to the Control Panel to find your way around the site and enjoy your visit!

Full update of the ACT Sirius 1 (Victor 9000) page with details of my 2 new machines and the repairs they needed to bring them back to life.

Happy towel day to the machine that literally meant life, the universe and everything to me. The little Sinclair ZX80 is 42 today! I STILL haven't done new pics to replace the 20 year old ones on this page. Tsk.

In yet another 'oops I've had this for 20 years and not created a page for it' I've finally got round to, er, creating a page for the Torch Disk Pack and Z80 Communicator - addons for the humble BBC Micro Model B that turned it into a CP/M workstation that ran a compatible version called CP/N that ran from ROM. Click the link!

Another new page, this time for the hen's teeth like EACA Genie III, a machine that sold in its, er, tens maybe. Very rare in the UK. And Europe. Click the link below!

Ack no. I knew it would happen at some point obviously, but you just never expect things to happen when they do. 
 
"Uncle" Clive Sinclair, the man who is directly responsible for me sitting in this chair now typing these words dies at 81. I owe my career to you, sir. RIP.
