I know it's been a while, but seriously, expect some updates from the site in the future. I've finally started to build up my "pages to make and update" list enough that I feel like working on some of it!

Also as seen in the photo above was a fun project. You either think it's cool, or a crime against retro computing, but I seriously don't get why so many people in the retrotech community are such purists about their retro machines, always obsessing over it being perfect, 10000% period accurate, and completely stock in functionality and looks. Nah man, not for me. Forget all that. I can mod my computers as much as I want.

And also, the machine was painted gray by the previous owner, and the paint was coming off and getting everywhere, so it was becoming annoying anyways and needed to be repainted, so I thought, why not make it "unique"? hahahha!!!
