RC2017/04 -- Open for Entrants!

OK...I still haven't got all the DNS stuff straightened-out to get pointed to the new Blogger site, but the show must go on! Just use for now and hopefully the more usual addresses will get sorted eventually.

Enter Now

If you plan to join us in the RC2017/04 competition, now is the time to make yourself known. Feel free to refer to our new "RetroChallenge Rules" page for reminders, but the basics are "do something interesting with an old computer, and blog about it for month". Whatever you are going to do, please send me an email describing:
  1. Your name (or alias);
  2. Your Twitter handle (if applicable);
  3. Your blog location (for project updates); and
  4. A brief synopsis of your project.
I hope that I can master Blogger well enough to produce an entrants list that looks a bit like the one from RC2016/10, so use that as a guide for the level of information needed. Please send the information request above to me via email to linville at tuxdriver dot com -- figuring-out how to decode that address is your first test...

Go, Go, Go!

Well, then, that's all for now -- less than three weeks until the start of the competition! I know that we have a few cool prize donations promised so far, and I still mean to put-up something of my own as well. One more decision to make! Anyway, get your entry to me, order your parts, and make any necessary preparations. April will soon be here!


  1. Just might also want to attach a picture or send a URL for a picture to use for the entrants list...thanks!

  2. My email address is in the third paragraph (the one just below the numbered list) above. It is encoded in name at domain dot com format instead of

  3. Thanks for putting the effort in to get this ball rolling, it is much appreciated!
